Both front Door central locking not working

Just bought my first BMW X5 last week and after having a Jeep Grand Cherokee am really happy with the quality and comfort of these 4WD's!

Have a samll problem. Both my front doors will not respond to keyless entry. They both open with the inner handles and the drivers will open and close with the key manually but will not instigate any other door.
Back doors are fine and work with both the keyless entry and button on centre console.

Now I know after picking up from the dealer that all doors were working fine.

I had to get a window regulator replaced the following day on the passenger front. Could it be possible that they auto electrician forgot to plug something back in which has stopped the front door locks from responding? Just seems odd that both the front doors have stopped working and the back doors are fine. Leads me to believe it is an electrical issue rather than a mechanical.

Thanks in advance.

Note: I bought this car interstate and drove it home which means I can not take it back to the same auto elec unfortunately.

I changed the battery in my 06 diesel last week whilst having a 12v battery connected in the engine bay. All went well for a few days then the front left door will not central lock from the key. All else works fine. I was thinking actuator at the door or relay in the GM3 module behind the glove box... I am happy to dig out the relay and replace (A$12 each) and tear the door to bits, as I have done door handle frame replacement.
