Lol...cant open car to pop hood. Will check key battery.


Do you have a second key? if not you should have an emergency key. Also what series bmw do you have? You only wrote 1996 BMW.


Its probly just the battery in the key, from what you told me so far.

most cars allow you to unlock driver's door with key.That also turns off the alarm, then check keypad battery.
