Faulty Key

Guys can anyone help. The other day my key remote stopped working, I followed the guide to re initialise the key remote (turn on and off, press unlock and hold while pressing lock three times) which works. However this then means the second key remote won't work. Any suggestions on how to do this and get both keys working? Its a 1996 X3 with the diamond key

You need to do the same process with all keys in one batch.

^ Yes, just like a garage door opener - once you program a new rolling code for one remote you have to include any other existing remotes in the process or they are not going to work.
