I have a 1993 318is and wondering if the key with the button you can press, is for remote central locking. The little sensor light (i believe thats what it is) is broken on the key, and the battery inside the key is now coroded.

Is this button for remote central locking on this model car, or is the key just the same design for all E36 models? If it is for remote central locking on this year and model, how much do you think BMW would charge to relace the key?

That button is actually a light bulb. I'm fairly certain BMW did not integrate the keyless entry/alarm into the key until 96+.
