Go to the stealer. Pay the $250. Get a key matched to your VIN. Avoid headaches.

That price is INSANE This is the SECOND time this has occurred to my X5. The first time it happened, my battery died dead as a door nail. Had to remove it and recharge. After placing it back into the truck the key wouldn't start it. I went and got my spare and it started as it should. This past summer, during the 7 day heatwave, the car sat all 7 days and I suspect that extreme heat zapped the battery. Car wouldn't turn over but would click. Again, took the battery out, WHICH IS LESS THAN 8 months old, got it fully charged and once I put it back in to the truck, THE SPARE KEY WON'T START IT!! I shouldn't have to spend $250 EACH TIME SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS!!

You don't have to - because you have another issue. You only need to buy a new key if you break or loose the old one(s). No main battery issue in your car can compromise the operation of the key (to start the car).

I think you have some other problem than just the key.
Because dead battery shouldn't cause miss synchronization between key and EWS.

Can a locksmith be able to resolve the issue of re-programming the 7 series key?

The remote lock/unlock function? Sure, but so can you - it's easy.

The ignition programming (so the key can start the car)? Not likely, not unless they have some very advanced tools and you remove the EWS module from your car for programming.

It can be done but in most cases, it easier (and sometime cheaper) to get a new key from a dealer...

Your question is too vague to give you an answer. First, this is a 1st generation (E53) X5 forum (2000-2006 model years).

So what 7 series...e23/e32/e38/e65/f01/g12 (1980s-2020 model years)...there are 6 generations of seven series...and all of them have programmable keys except for the first two (e23/e32).

And what do you want to program it to do? The remote keys have at the very least 3 functions (e38)...and the next generations (e65/f01/g11) have even more things the remote does depending on if it has CA (comfort access)...and the last generations have even more things the keys can do.

Help us help you better....provide a bit more info about the car and the problem.
