this is an immobilizer tampering code. you can unhook the battery for an hour to attempt to reset the immobilizer, and you can try a second key, but most likely the immobilzer will need to be reset with a factory BMW scan tool. Sorry if you were hoping for a simpler answer, but I trust that my honest answer is appreciated. Thank you for ensuring a positive rating is selected

then the problem isn't likely the key (that was a long shot anyways, but something worth trying). the key and immobilizer are different. my answer stands - the immobilzer needs to be reset with a factory BMW scan tool.
