I stopped by my local BMW dealership and told them about the same issue. I mentioned that I used to be able to start me car with my fob in my pocket. Now I must have it in the ignition.

They "Analyzed" the issue and said their was a sensor behind the ignition Fob insert that reads the proximity of the Fob. They said I would have to replace it for it to work. Its about 700USD. With my extended warranty I would pay about 300USD.

Can anybody get their hands on a schematic of the dash to verify this part and possibly the part number?
