I don't know of anyone else who has a key I could borrow. I do have one of the keys to my old 540i. But it hasn'y been used since I last had the car over 4 years ago so I'm sure the battery is shot in that

Also, have you verified that the key is transmitting the signal? A good locksmith will have a tester that will check for the signal.

The rechargeable cell may have given up the ghost.
Yep. It's a crappy pic but you can see the grey wire is split in 2 areas. And there is also a red/black wire that is starting to fray along with a brown wire too.

I work at a car dealer and our parts departmemt has a tester that works on all makes of remotes including BMW so I'll try them tomorrow.

One weird note. After removing blown fuse 53. The center console lock switch stopped working. Yet when I put it back in, the switch works? I'm so confused lol.
