Well, you can reflash it, but I don't think you have equipment, you can send it to me, I'll do it for 50$, since reader writer is about 400$. Also I will disassemble it and reglue it. I'm in nor cal so you can stop by it will take 2hrs

I know this thread is old but I was curious if you still reprogram BMW keys? I have an '02 745Li. The unlock button does not work but the other buttons do. It feels like something under the button is broken, it doesn't click like the other buttons.

Let me know, thanks!

I had the exact same problem for about a week and then it seemed to fix itself. Weird.

The unlock switch on the printed circuit board breaks off. Need to cut open the key and resolder the switch.

It does feel like something is broken underneath the actual button. It doesn't press down like it used to. So, I don't solder, if I take it to someone to solder it, is there any chance of harming the board or anything around it causing it not to work at all? Or is it pretty simple to fix? I haven't opened the key up yet.

Cutting the case open is harder than the required soldering.
