Battery is fine, did test on cranking amps, car shows 12.5 volts. Lights and dash come on when turning key, does not turn over, makes a kind of "airy" electrical noise when after turning the key. Tried to push start, works sometimes, others not. Sometimes it will start. My key has been tempermental lately also, sometimes I can use the auto lock, sometimes it doesn't work. Could there possibly be something going on with the EWS module. Might I just need a new key?

Oy are describing a classic EWS issue, it could be a faulty key or a bad EWS system issue, scanning for faults with the proprietary BMW software is next to find out if faults are set and what they are.
