2003 X 5 My Remote Key (Second key) battery is dead. Yes, I know we
are supposed to use each key every six months and I did not. I read
that the key is recharged when I the ignition. Once the battery goes
dead is there anyway to get it recharged (other than driving for 200
miles with the dead battery)? Tried to lock the car with the key in
the ignition, the key in ignition warning comes on the doors unlock
Anyone has taken apart once of these key fobs and replaced the battery?
When I bought my CPO 04 330CI in April I had the same problem, I took it to
the dealer and had it checked, it needed to be reinitialized from what the
SA told me. Replacement key for my car was about $160.00 so I was glad to
hear it and works well now.
