    2006 530d.
    Working abroad and my wife has phoned to tell me a warning light has came on showing a key with a line through it and a message telling her that if she removes the key the car may not start. Is it possible that the battery is dead in the key or is there a more serious problem.
    P.S. She removed the key and now the car wont start. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply. Luckly the wife was at her mums house for dinner. 1 hour later car started and no more warning light..... Yet
    I,m hopeing it could be a weak battery but does the key battery not charge while in the ignition?
    As I have only had the car 2 weeks now kinda hope the last owner had known of these niggly faults. I also think the windscreen washer pump has gone.

    Great being away from home when you cant solve these problems!!
