The battery is a CR2016, a common button battery available at most
drugstores or your local Radio Shack. If the new battery does not
solve your problem, your key may have to be reset to the ignition
code. I had a problem with my locks not responding to the remote
keyfob. The BMW tech reset my key, but unfortunately, he did it so
quickly that I missed the procedure. It involved inserting the key
into the ignition, turning it on, removing the key and pressing
buttons (dont know which buttons he pressed) several times. At least
that's the part I saw.
