Mein Auto: 750il
Key Fob probelm

I just picked up my 01 750il from a auction and I have some work ahead of me.

I have 2 key fobs.

Key Fob 1 - The battery works and it opens and locks the doors. It does NOT start the car.

Key Fob 2 - I believe the batteries are dead but it STARTS the car.

So I read about how to program the fobs and how to open and repalce the battery.
But which key would be my master to program the other? Its been a while since I owned a BMW so I am a confusded on which route to take to get them both working.

Any thoughts on how to proceed?
