when i have the wires connected to the driver lock actuator, both sides stop working, once i disconnect the driver side the passenger side works no problem. replaced both actuators, anyone know what it is? GM5?
Sounds like a short to ground somewhere in the wiring to the driver's side. Everybody wants to rush to the GM5 without troubleshooting the wiring first.
Look up the diagram on bmwteka.com, bust out your multimeter and find out where the power stops.
Click "Complete vehicle" > "Body" IIRC > and then "Central locking" and find the one most applicable to your model.interesting my car is a 2001 325ci from April, where do I plug in that info?
