I ended up getting a new comfort access key from Bimmernav which came direct from BMW according to my VIN # and ID.

Received the key put the car in accessory mode, pushed the new key into the slot and held for 20-30 sec but error message comes up:

"Remote Control! Unidentified key"

I tried every possible combination to try to get the key to code up the basic functions but no go.

I then took the key and car to my indi who has BMW ISTA which said the key is defective, see below:

So Bimmernav sent me a replacement key but same problem occurs where my car wont even code up the basic functions. Yes I checked the key battery

So the question is does anyone know what could be going wrong and what to try next?

My existing and only CA key works perfectly.

I would appreciate if anyone has any suggestions. I do understand the CA part needs to be coded/programmed but the key should work partly out of the box.
