Mein Auto: 745i
Key Fob wont unlock Drivers door!

I have an 04 745i with about 79k miles on it. All of a sudden my key fob stopped opening up the drivers side door. It opens all the other doors, even after two key presses, but not the drivers side. Strange thing is it locks all doors fine. I also noticed that the manual door lock stopped opening up the drivers side as well!! Anybody have any ideas on what is going on?

Remove door panel, may be that small arm came off.
Or may be
You need new power lock module for driver's door

Mein Auto: Nothing
I recently bought a brand new key because my old one started getting very hard to unlock any door.. I would have to press a bunch of times and put near windshield and window.. anyway, new key solved issue but in the last month two times I have gone to my car the new key will not work at all, it's dead, if I unlock the car with the manual key and start the car the next time I try it will be fine.. out of hundreds of times it's only happened twice so far, but still have no idea whats the cause..
