Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement
If the key will not initialize then he most likely it has simply been damaged from being opened. There keys are not designed to be opened and sometimes when they are forced open this can result
Sorry if you were hoping for a different answer, i trust that my honesty and quick reply is appreciated

OK so assuming both keys are damaged where do I go for help in obtaining a replacement key/fob etc pls
The only place to get a replacement key that will actually start our car is a BMW dealer. You might be able to Frankenstein together the remote from a used key with the immobilizer chip from your key but I cannot speak o that process or advise it as an approach. As the question has been answered please kindly click on a positive rating.

The keyfob was working with all buttons 2begin with then just stopped locking the car (both other buttons were still working.) Before I opened it. What I'm asking is what reasons could it possible be for it to work part functions etc. Pls
The only reason for the key to work part functions is the one button on the key itself is bad. As he question has been answered please now select a positive rating .
