Key remote help

My key remote won't lock or unlock anymore but it starts the car. Anyone know what is wrong with it or can be fit or reprogram. Thanks anyone. 2004 M3

does it pop the trunk? arm/disarm the alarm? Do the interior lights come on when you try to unlock the car?

do you drive the car frequently? as the key battery is charged while it's in the ignition...

I had both my master keys replaced this way. I have a Vert and the range on the remote just sucks. I often have to use the under the chin trick!
