BMW Keys

You find out something new every day, every time I would get in the beemer I would get a few minor tweaks that I have been postponing for a little while. The one thing I don’t miss is when my car burns through the oil, I go for the top up.

I went in for an oil top up since it was running a little low. One of the other errors I keep getting on my screen was low battery in my key, one the features that I have enjoyed with my car for a few years now is push start without having to take my keys out of my pocket. At the time very few cars had it, but now its pretty common. When I went in for the oil top up I told them about the error regarding my key having a low battery. I thought they would just replace one of those really small batteries. The service guy asked if I put my key into the car or just switch it on while in my pocket. I told him that over the past couple of years I have never taken the key out of my pocket. He said that it has a recahargeable battery and that I need to plug the key into the car and start it to charge it up. I felt a little dumb since I usually read up as much as possible on the car but this time I just asked and got a very simple answer.

    for bmws if you have the keyless entry its a regular battery that you change. if its not the keyless entry then it recharges when plugged in.
