Door module, general module or both

I just got a bmw x5 2002 4.4i

My key doesn't work. I took it to bmw they reprogram the key, did all this things and it still

didnt work. They said the problem may be with the door module or the general module or

both. the key doesnt work for all the doors and the the trunk/cage, also the central locking

system doesnt work so i think its the general module. please help what should i do?

Find an indy with the right software interface to diagnose your problems, install the module/s and program them to the vehicle. ( If required.) A $tealer with that vague an answer does not seem to know what they are doing.

Will the General Module also prevent you from opening the door mechanically?

A couple things. Does the key in the door unlock/lock just the driver door or does it unlock/lock all the doors. When it unlocks/locks the driver door do you have to turn it a full 90 degrees or does the motor kick in at about 45 degrees? Do the interior lights work? Do they come on when the doors are opened? If it doesn't do they indicate door open correctly on the instrument cluster?
