I am the "new" owner of a 12 year old 525i. It runs quite well, but I'm still getting used to the systems (after having driven the same Honda for 17 years). When I turned the car on this morning, a key symbol lit up on the display. Does that mean I need to get my car key reconfigured? Will it stop working if I don't? Thank you for your help!
