    Hey, amigos (and amigoettes):

    Very weird: The key has stopped its remote functions. I'm told it can be reprogrammed to the car via some arcane ritual which involves clicking three times, turning in a counterclockwise circle, and scattering the bones of a chicken on the asphalt, but. . . .

    Seriously, does anybody know where the FAQs on such a procedure might be found? I DID find out how to reprogram the one-touch windo once, but have no idea where I found that FAQ.

    Thanks in advance!

    Possible dead key battery?

    Dealer may need to reinitialize the key.

    Sounds like the battery has died. Make a trip to the dealer and they should be able to charge it and reinitialize it. Try one of the Z4 forums, I have seen it discussed there many times.
