Mein Auto: 2008 335i Coupe
Noise when unlocking car with remote

Just recently when I unlock my 2008 335 Coupe with the remote, when it unlocks, there is a residual noise being made that sound almost like a drill that last 3-5 seconds. This only happens when the car has sat for an hour or more. It does not happen if you use the remote to open the trunk.

Has anybody else had a noise like this?

A failing lock actuator makes a sound like a jackhammer. Is the sound anything like that?

It's your fuel pump. The car is just getting ready to go for a drive. Totally normal.

+1 This.

A more aggressive prime of the HPFP is what seems to have solved the recurring failures seen through 2010. After my car received the software upgrade as part of the HPFP recall replacement, the pump priming became much more noticeable.
