    Hi, I have an e46 saloon which has some locking/unlocking issues. The keyfob upon manually trying to lock the car on the door handle will not lock or unlock the car. The keyfob buttons itself does not work too. But the car does lock/unlock properly from the inside locking button. When i go...

    Hey guys, I had my front right door card off to mess around with my dying window actuator on my late model e46 sedan and when I went to close and lock the door for the night (door card and window actuator was still off, battery still disconnected), I noticed the door wouldn’t lock. At first the...

    I've been trying to get my door lock actuator to work properly since I've had this car. It will not unlock with the fob, but will lock. The locking pin thingy would get jammed when I used the key, and would barely unlock the car, resulting in the door jam getting caught a little when opening the...

    The diamond key I have starts the car fine still, but not being able to lock & unlock remotely has been annoying. This winter my lock froze shut and I busted it trying to open it, so now I kind of need a working key. I know an eBay key won't start the car, but if I sync it to my car turning the...

    I have a 2003 e46 320i sedan and the driver door can´t be locked. I lock the door manually from the lock in the driver side door and it seems to work because all the lock rods in the doors go down and i can hear the actuator working. I try the left rear passenger door and it´s locked, However, I...

    I’m having a problem figuring out why my trunk won’t lock when I lock the doors. The only time I can get it to not open is when I unplug the battery and shut the trunk. I have tried putting the key in the lock and locking it that way but still won’t lock. I have locked blth doors and am still...

    Hello Fanatics, My 2003 330i is approaching 250k miles, in large part thanks to the knowledge shared here. I just rebuilt my lock cylinder (2nd time since I've owned the car) because the little cast piece inside broke. Put the cylinder back in the door, and found I couldn't turn the key to...

    Today I experienced a very weird problem. While driving, the doors started locking and unlocking by themselves in a random manner. There wasn't any specific pattern in which they locked/unlocked. I tried pressing the center console lock button and it worked but the doors still unlocked and...

    I have a 2005 BMW 325i and the key unlock and lock does not work, unless I do it from the outside. If i take the key OUT of the ignition and open the driver's door, there is a constant beep that occurs even though ALL lights are turned off, and key is NOT inside the ignition. I'm pretty sure it...

    E46 325i 2001 Centre console door lock switch doesn't work when the car is off or the key is in the accessory or on position. It only works when the car is running. Is this normal, if so how do you unlock the doors from the inside without the key?

    Bare with me folks, I've scoured the threads looking for a solution and did not find anything helpful... so far. Here's where I'm at: I've been manually locking and unlocking my 2001 e46 convertible for some time because ALL of the auto/remote lock features haven't worked for years. The lock...

    Is there anyone in Australia preferably Victoria that can replace the door lock relays? I have the parts but would rather find a skilled solderer than risk stuffing it myself

    Hey, thanks to one of the previous owners, my ignition key, which used to unlock and lock the car via the keyfob, is cut differently from the key that is meant for the car and matches the VIN. Currently, the ignition key is dead. I have cut it open and replaced the battery in the past with...

Fast forward to today when I got the Key tumbler replaced at a shop and now it only unlocks sometimes :censor...

    2003 325i Got the car in July. One key has been relatively reliable. The other pretty much not at all. Never gave it any thought, but the interior lock/unlock button has not worked since I got the car. Several days ago I put the emergency flashers on. They wouldn't turn off. Base gate guard...
