Reprograming the key fobs will not fix your issue. It sounds like the starter motor has failed and will need to be replaced.

Ok so all light come on and dash come on and you can hear fuel pump is that still starter
BMW Mechanic: Kenny, BMW Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes, That is all normal for it to do. The fuel pump turns on because it thinks the car is going to start you usually don't hear it because the engine is starting.

BMW Mechanic: Kenny, BMW Technician replied 2 years ago

If the started has failed you will not hear work because it isnt working.
