Comfort access

Hello!
My comfort access on both original key fobs stop working(e91)
I went to dealler ; they replace bataries -nothing
replace the antenna in the rear spoiler-nothing
they check all the wirering and some computer block-nothing
They say that there is no fault in the car and the last option is to try to order a new CA key but they are not sure that it will solve the problem.
they say that new key has to work straight away,without any programming.
BUT, what about that the car can recognize only two keys which are programmed into the system and no chance to recognize a new one without deleting one of the old ones from the system?(read in forums)
So,can anyone help me with this problem?
Thank a lot

I think the key must be programmed to the car, but perhaps when they order the key using your VIN, it comes shipped pre-programmed.

Either way, this is a most curious fault! Not sure about the 2 key limit...

It's 2 active keys and like 5-6 stored keys.

Have you checked your battery?

The car will disable convenience features when the battery has a low charge/cannot hold a charge. Comfort Access is once of the first features that are disabled.

Can anyone verify that the car can only store two CA keys? Is it not worth ordering a third key as a spare and expect that you can have it work with all of the comfort access features? Thx!
