I went back to the dealer and they gave me a key ring (about 1 cm in diameter) which fits through the two holes easily.
#108 of 136 Anyone have Problems with their Key Remotes?
Aug 04, 2006 (7:59 am)
One of my 2 key remotes stopped working last month. I took it to the local dealer, and they got a new key for me. But, when they tried to program the new key, the car wouldn't accept it. Something about the "reprogramming mode of the car not working". So, now my dealer thinks it's something wrong with the car, not the key, and they've ordered a new part for the car. But, one of my 2 original remotes still works fine, so I'm a bit confused.
Anyone else have any problems like this and know what might be wrong?

Funny, I had just gone online to post a similar question.
One of our remotes quit working altogether and the other is only working intermittently. I changed the batteries in both but that wasn't it. Don't really see why it would only affect one remote but my guess is the receiver in the car is on the frizz.
Does anybody know if there is an antenna that might have come loose (and where is it?)? I have had a similar problem with my laptop's wireless and there the antenna connector had come off the wireless card.

Strange you mention that, ours sometimes doesn't work and our neighbours have had the same problem. they seem to think its the car as the key stopped working occasionally at the same time.

I brought it back to my dealer and they (1) replaced the receiver in the car, and (2) reprogrammed the two keys I have. Both keys are now working perfectly. It was all covered by the warranty, so I didn't have to pay anything

Good news! Our 5 is coming up for the 7500 mile service so I'll have them take care of the remote problem then.
Hope they will be as quick and uncomplicated as your dealer.

Just got back from the dealership where they did the 7500 mile service. They ordered two new key remotes for us under warranty. They told me that it was indeed a known problem.
So far that has been the only problem we had with the 5. Hope it stays that way.
