Question Key questions. for 2001 330i M Package

Hello everyone. I've done some extensive research about this issue and I think I might be left with replacing the rechargeable battery.

Reprogramming the key does nothing, btw..

I can only seem to unlock and lock the trunk with my key.
Locking it with the key works after about 10 attempts.
Unlocking it works maybe once out of 10 attempts.

I haven't found a pattern on why it works or rarely works. I got the car 2 weeks ago.
Should I replace the battery inside the key? Anyone have similar issues and what fixed it?

Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
