Remote problem

I wanted to thank the guys for the info on the site. Unfortunately I could have
saved myself $200 if I would have come here first. Thinking the remote had gone dead I purchased a new remote from the dealer only to find out that they could not program the remote. I have a 2003 525i I started reading this site and found that the gas cap actuator was the cause of the problem. The old number 53 fuse was blown , I changed the fuse, reprogrammed the remote using the instructions I also received here and problem solved. It could have only cost me $1.50 for a new fuse. Expensive lesson. Thanks all
