I am getting an EWS code, and the car won't start.
The EWS (Electronic Immobilizer) light on your BMW is an alarm that will cause your car to not start. Something you can attempt is using a different key to start your BMW. If after trying a different key, the car still does not start, it will need to be taken to the dealership so they can reprogram the EWS theft system on your BMW. This is a service only the dealership can provide.
