    1986 735i The following problems appeared simultaneously after months of perfect function: • stalling after about 2 minutes: driving, idling without gas, or idling at 2000rpm • door locks having little fits of locking and unlocking themselves continuously for 10 seconds at a stretch with engine...

    I have a 2009 E70 (sorry my first post and X5) that the right side is driving me crazy. First it started with thw rear passanger door and fuel door not opening, it seemed to happen when my son decided he wanted to be first out of the car and tried to open the door before coming to a complete...
  3. General BMW Questions
    Cannot unlock passenger and rear doors! I'm tired of having passenger climbing out of the windows. LOL - but not funny, comfort function = aggravation and frustration. Why don't they offer mechanical unlock for emergency??? also, I have issues with mirror not stopping where it is supposed to...

    I just installed a door lock actuator on my 2011 328i Xdrive. It works fine electronically but will not open with the metal key. The key turns about 90 degrees in both directions with what feels like proper spring resistance but the actuator does not unlock or lock the door. Any ideas?
  5. E28 (1982 - 1988)
    So I am a newbie when it comes to e28s. My father has had one for a while and I recently decided to take it off his hands for a while and restore it for him. The car has a slew of problems but still runs and drives so I want to get it in good enough shape to last another 200,000 miles, but I...
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Folks, I am driving my E90 for about 10 months but never seen this happening and hence the question. I know that doors get auto locked when speed reaches above 10mph, but yesterday I started the car & reversed and noticed doors getting locked and then again getting unlocked automatically. Is...

  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have had to replace the socket for my front left turn signal three times. The last time was Friday (two days ago) and it is now burned out. There is a burn mark on the side by the metal contact. :mad: In addition, the locks have started acting up. My driver side front door would not unlike and...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have read many articles on the door actuator problems in the e46 and e92 models, and am trying to replace the fuses. the fuse map says fuse # 57, so i replaced it with a new 15 amp fuse. I tested the old fuse with an volt meter and got nothing so I know it is blown. the problem is, for some...
  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a door lock problem that has been going on for awhile. I've seen a ton of good advice on this forum and i'm hoping that I can find out the easiest way to handle the problem. Took my 2003 330i to the dealership. They just told me..."it's the actuator" with no reserve about it at all...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey, I had to disconnect the battery to pull my radio and check out the connectors for possibly installing one of those cell phone bluetooth things (forgot the name). Anyway, once I reconnected the battery the passenger door lock and the auto-up/down on the window stopped working. I fiddled...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello Everyone, A few months ago my driver door's lock stopped working properly. When you push the unlock button on the key the lock attempts to go up (you can hear the motor trying to push it up) but seems to be stuck. Occasionally the same thing happens when attempting to lock the doors. The...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I just finished repairing my GM5 relays to fix the typical E46 door lock problem. For the past few years, the doors on my 2001 330i would occasionally fail to unlock. Usually it would just act up for a day or so every two or three months, and other than once having two coworkers climb back in...

    Greetings A couple of days ago, I had an issue with the doors on my 90 E34 535i. The locking mechanism failed to work...with the key or manually.

  19. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So this was kind of odd today. Started off when I went to unlock my car my driver's side didn't unlock but the other 3 doors did. I manually unlocked the door and went on my drive. I pulled up to a gas station and got out of my door, pushed my gas panel, and nothing. I pressed the unlock switch...
