My r56 key fob just died a death. Unfortunately it's my only one! Opened it up but it's all soldered together. What are my options!?

Cheers in advance.

Geoff.

I have never tried this so take with a pinch of salt/Alski disclaimer
but I would consider If in your shoes & if no other options available if you have opened the key getting a similar voltage penny battery and ad-hoc hot wire/charge over 24 hours or longer if possible, it might trickle enough juice across to get you going if you’re lucky ?

Do you have a rechargeable electric toothbrush? if so, sit the key on the charger for an hour or two.

I do so trying that.

Other thoughts and maybe I jumped the gun. I drove the car yesterday absolutely fine so didn't question the car battery. But now I've checked, no interior lights, hazards anything.

Would the key immobilise all of the above?
