Battery in the key

Got an X3 E83. I've been using 1 key for a couple of months. Now the other key doesn't work for remote locking. I know it needs to charge with the car on...but it doesn't seem to be charging.

Any advise would be very helpful. I live on an island 9x5 miles so I can't go for a long drive at any speed over 40

It may need a new battery depending on how old it is. I'm about to do this procedure:


I ordered the Panasonic VL2020 off Amazon. Not sure if that helps.
