There's a way to reset your BMW key, sit in driver's seat, close all door including the trunk and hood, insert key into ignition, turn the key to position two (2), the zero (0) and pull the key out of ignition, keep the bmw button pressed with one finger while pressing the unlock button with the other. all doors at this point should lock and then unlock. if so start the vehicle. this will reset the key code.
Your key has lost its program it just means your key is on its last leg just go to the bmw dealership they can turn the key back on for you it takes about 5min or less they should not charge you---btw you do not replace key batteries for the bmw they are rechargeble thru the ignition you just have to buy another key from the dealership when it finally calls it quits...note bmw north amercia only authorizes 10 keys to be issued per vin number if a car reaches this limit you can not get a key from the dealer ever....
