If it does, it sounds like the problem is the RF blinker itself.

No offense, but the reason you were able to purchase your car "for very little" is probably due to the deferred maintenance. At 120k miles, almost any car will need/require a lot of things to be...

Sounds like it could be the electronic ignition switch, a common problem with our cars.
If you try the key on & off say, 10 to 15 times, does it ever start up or does it even crank?

Yikes! Really? $100 for a piece of black plastic? Even for BMW, that's pretty sad. I don't blame truckemup97 at all for not getting one at that price!
