Question about Cars & Trucks
The manual switch works both ways but the remotes only the one way ---up
If you have several fobs that don't work, then it is the receiver. If only one fob, then it could be either the fob or receiver. It takes a higher dollar tool to see which one it is.

SOURCE: BMW remote control problem
I have a e60 525i that I just brought and it has the same problem, the owners manual suggests driving with the key in the ignition for a long time as the batteries are rechargable and may have gone flat, i have tried this and it doesnt seem to work
i also read something about getting water in the aerial about the rear window and that wrecks the receiever. My car isn;t under warranty so not looking forwarding to taking it to bmw

My mechanic says this can be due to a brainshort on the part of the onboard computer; if the original driver's side doorlock switch goes on the fritz, it can confuse the computer and mess up the fuel door switch, trunk switch, and even the driver's door key switch (opening twice doesn't unlock the other car doors) - all of which happened on my car.
