    As the title says. Just replaced the drivers door lock actuator today on my 2001 540i/6 because every time I unlocked the car, all the windows were going down. Now, after I replaced it, it is behaving strange. I CAN unlock the drivers door, all the other doors, as well as roll the windows...

    My driver side door lock stutters. I ordered the new BMW Group door lock that came as a pair. I started to changer the driver side exactly as researched with nothing different being done. Now it doesn't stutter(comes to unlocked position normally) but it stays unlocked and will not lock with...

    Hi, I just recently purchased a 1994 318is knowing the passenger door won't open (I'm from Aus so the left door) and after poking around it seems the door is locked and the pin that comes down from the lock cylinder is not connected to anything and is just hanging loose. I've looked at some...

    Just want to pass along what I did this weekend in case somebody has the same issue. Was just planning on replacing a broken inside door handle, but when I went to open the back door it would not open. In fact the lock indicator would go up but then right back down. Even if I held the lock...

    Hi Everyone, I could really do with your help here. I've got a weird problem with my rear door on a 2005 X3. The door started not opening from the outside but did from the inside. I took the door pad off and tried to find anything obvious but couldn't see anything broken. Then I found that if I...
  8. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I have recently purchased an E60 (2008 model). What I have noticed is that, when I try to lock the car with one of the doors open, the car simply locks all the doors and doesn't beep / alarm to let you know that one of the doors is open. Is this an option that can be enabled? Or an...

    Hi. I have been looking through the forum trying to find something about BMW's nanny mode, but with no luck. Now I cannot believe this topic is not discussed and so I must assume I am calling it by the wrong name. I am talking about the irritating 'overprotection' I find on my vehicle. As a...

    I have a 525I originally sold in Japan with a non functioning remote door lock & alarm. My dealer had told me the IR sensor in the interior mirror is bad and I need a new mirror - more than $850. Does anyone know if it is possible to take the mirror apart and just replace the sensors? Thanks.
