My Ride: 01 330i
Key fob and clock light on dash wont go off

Been reading forums on problems with the key fob. I have a problem myself and hope its nothing too big to fix. First off I've been having problems with my 01 330i having no heat. Still haven't fixed that problem, but I parked the car outside since December. Starting it two times a week to make sure it idles good and the battery is good. Well today, I figured I would fool around with it trying to fix my heat. I didn't start it mid week, so this was the first time in 8 days I started it. I pushed the unlock key and it wouldn't unlock. So I manually put the key in and unlocked the door. Opened the door and the alarm was going off. I couldn't cut it off with the key, so I stuck the key in the ignition and started the car so the alarm would shut off. I let it idle for 20 min and turned it off and noticed the dash light was still on where the clock was when I took the key out. I couldn't lock the car with the key, so I locked the door manually and the light stayed on. Two minutes later the alarm goes off and eventually stops after a few minutes. Now the light is on where the clock is and its killing my battery. My key doesn't work to lock and unlock. I think the alarm is still armed ever since I started it with the key the first time. Anyone know what I should do. I disconnected the battery and left it like that. Its either the key battery or the car battery. I need to find a way to get the key to work and I think the dash light will turn off. (The alarm light isn't blinking on the rear view mirror). Please, throw your suggestions my way. Thanks
