key fob not working

hello people, i have a 330ci 2004 and my key fob stopped working a couple of months ago iv done alot of research and believe that the problem is either from my antenna amplifier since the car isnt recieving the signal from the key, or a friend told me it might be from the ignition switch since my car keeps beeping when driver door is open whether the key is in or out of the ignition , also i do have another key the was for another car an x5 2000 model the sadly burned and the key is what remained, i tried to program this key on my car but it wont turn at all to start the programming procedure please help

You are overcomplicating, sounds like the battery in your key died. The key is a sealed unit, and you can only buy another at the dealer and they will have to reprogram to the car.

I am talking about the battery in the key, not the car... You cannot change the battery in the key and will have to order a new one.

so your saying that each time the battery in the key dies you have to get a new key?.

i changed the battery in the key it looks like the watch batteries uv done it before many times in my old car and besides the car is not responding to anyother key i took it to a specialist and he tried a couple of keys he agreed that the problem was that the car was not recieving the signal from the key, the key is fine
