Key Fob won't lock in slot, Key Error light Code

Hey guys I recently Bought a 08 328I and i have a problem The Fob wont stayed locked in the ignition I can insert it and push on it and start the car but it will bring up an error code and a slashed key light. So I've searched and found some stuff but not similar to my case And I don't have an Owners manual. It might be something simple but figured you guys could help!

Do you have comfort access? (If you're not sure does your front door handles have a spot on top with ridges on them?)

Hey Alex, go to www.bmwusa.com and create an account using your VIN. Upon sign in, you can download a free copy of your User Manual.

However, this will not solve your key fob problem...but at least you will have your manual in .pdf...

Sounds like you need a new key holder if the key won't lock in.

My 2006 had this happen the other day. There was a plastic little "door" that was pushed down incorrectly. So i could start the car and key could fall out and still drive. With same warning code. I took tiny pliers pulled the messed up door out and it locks in fine now. Good luck.

It won't stay in? Maybe it needs some porn.

I have a BMW E90 and my gf force out the keys damaging the key slot. What is the part number for the key slot. The car runs well, the only problem is the key slot (holder) keeps coming off when I push and remove the key from the slot. ...
