    I've been having problems with my remote door locks since I bought the car, until recently it only used to be the driver side that locked but didn't unlock (works fine manually) and the rest of the locks worked fine.

    Hey guys, I have a 2002 325i and my GM5 module has gone bad. I went looking for a replacement at a salvage yard, and was able to find a 2004 325i so I took the GM5 module, the ECM Located in the engine bay, and was lucky enough to also find the key to the car all there from the same vehicle. My...

    So to start this off I’m unsure on exactly everything the gm5 module controls but what I do know is my parking sensors don’t work due to a PDC issue and my car opens all the windows and sunroof on one click of the fob.

    Okay so yes I know another e46 with a door that won’t open. It’s not a GM5 issue or electrical. I recently replaced the door lock actuator as the lock wouldn’t unlock without me manually opening from the inside. After replacing the actuator everything was great for about 2 seconds until I...
