    yes, the key fobs arent working but i think that the main problem is somewhere in remote receiving (central locking) mechanism of car (that cant be recognized by the dealers tester)

    when this problem occurred with one key fob, the first thing i have done, went home and tried to lock with another one but nothing happened.. the dealer cant check integrity of key fobs but is it possible that both fobs stopped working at the same time?

    OK...

    Now we might be onto something.

    The reciever for the fobs (i think) is behind the trim in the C-pillar.
    I'm not sure which side. It can have problems with corrosion and there has been a replacement (or at least this is the case for e90s)

    So try and unclip the trim panels, and have a look for corrosion. Damp from the rear screen can condense on the radio reciever.
