Keyless remote is not charging, does it have a battery?

My car has 133000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: Hi, thanks for writing in. Yes, your keyles...

Hi, thanks for writing in. Yes, your keyless remote does in fact have a battery that occasionally will need to be replaced. You may notice when it takes several clicks to get it to function properly. Be sure to confirm that it is in fact the batteries when replacing as sometimes this is misdiagnosed as faulty button switches inside the remote as well. You will need to take this to the BMW dealer to replace. Hope this helps and best of luck!
