Key problem? I accidentally left my fob in the dash last time I moved my e91. Over the following few months, the car's (new in December) battery ran down to nothing. I had to attach a jump box to the under-hood jump spots to power up the car to remove the key. Car battery is now charged, key fob seems like it has a charge (it locks and unlocks car) but seems to be no longer recognized by the car for operation- I cannot start it, or even power it up in the accessory position.

Edited to add: I do have the ELV symbol on the cluster. Will this prevent the ignition from even going into "accessory" (pressing start/stop with no foot on brake)?
I like broken things.
