Car won't turn on help please!
I lost my original car key and have used my spare key on numerous occasions. However this time it seems like my car is not reading the key or something.
I drive a 2008 528xi and it has a manual transmission. I put in my spare key into the ignition, then pressed the clutch. The clutch and the brake pad felt very hard when I pressed on them. At first the big red exclamation mark came (not the tire pressure one just a big solid red exclamation mark).
The message said key in the ignition then it was followed by a yellow foot on pedal symbol. So then I put in the spare again then pressed the brake pad then I pressed the clutch and still nothing.
Then the yellow misfiring symbol appeared (imaged attached). I think from trying to turn it on for numerous times now when I put the spare key in the radio turns on but then everything dies.
At this point idk if it could be a spark plug, a dead battery, or if my key needs to get reprogrammed.
Any help is welcomed thank you
