So I’ll try to put as much info as I can!
picked up my dream car yesterday a cream mini 2007! The dealership gave me a horrendous key which the actual key would fall out Of the fob! Anyways got a new key and had it programmed so it starts the car etc however
It doesn’t open the car! I have to use the Manuel key and when I do the car alarm goes off! It stops when I put the fob in the start/stop!
the mechanic tested the receiver and said it’s fine so suspected bc unit however he was looking by the start stop and I thought the remote receiver was either on rear view mirror or above it???
could it be a fuse? I’m willing to check all the fuses myself but that’s it I don’t want to screw up my car!!
I hate that the alarm goes off when I open the door and need
1. To get the remote to work
2. Not have the alarm go off when I open the drivers door with the key! (Will this stop when the fob works and I can use remote unlock
Please help guys

I have the exact same problem with my newly bought Mini from 2007. I am super curious to what you did to solve it?
