My remote controls on my bmw will not work. I have tried to reset them but that doesn't work either and have also replaced the batteries on the remotes. They were working when I took the car into the body shop and they replaced the door handle but when we picked up the car, neither one of the remotes worked.
Usually after any maintenance or repair been carried out on your BMW, the remotes would disabled itself for the mere reason of security in aspect of theft prevention. The remotes could be set again by simply initialized it by depressing the buttons for a few seconds in the vicinity of the remote receiver at the rear view mirror. Just try it first

any check engine light? Try cleaning the intake throttle plate with a lightly soaked paper towel, the plate is located in the intake; with throttle cable attached to it at the top of the engine near the bellows boot attached to the air cleaner assembly that comes off the mass airflow to the intake. It looks a 3.5 mm cd. That plate gets dirty and throws off the idle air control.

You have to state exactly what is wrong, but please be aware that a trip to the dealer is required with almost any problem this totally electronically controlled car has for special testing by factory trained technicians.
2008?? in my alldata book it says that this is a dealer only job to reset the key fob with diagnostic software ,it is also saying that battery replacement isnt necessary providing it is used at least once a year so it must charge up its own key by the tesla principle ,I cannot be more specific than this as i do not work in a dealership for this type of vehicle
I had a BMW 540i 2000 and that happen to me, my advice is to get the battery out of the car and recharge it. It would be advisable to have it check for malfunctioning. If it is ok, put it back on and the car will start. If not good, put a new battery, the car will start and all the lights will work in order.
Probably you could loos your radio set up and clock set up if you took too much time in the replacement of the battery, don't worry, reset the clock and the radio stations.
If your talking about what would a dealership change, it generally consists of a tune up, including spark plugs, plug wires, air filter, oil change, pcv valve, and fuel filter. Thats also usually when they want to replace the timing belts. There may be one or two other things specific to BMW, but generally thats what you can expect.
