  1. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    Hi All, New here, sorry if this has been answered already, I've tried looking but can't seem to find this issue specifically. Anyways, in short the passenger door lock has failed, meaning the door will not open from inside or out, using either the fob, dash button or putting the key in the...
  2. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I have a 1989 325ix and i have always locked from the trunk because it seemed to work easier, but out of the blue it wouldn't turn and when i try to unlock my driver door it is in double lock position. I am able to force it out but now every time I lock it, it double locks automatically. I bent...

    My wife and I own a black 2016 BMW X5 w/ M Sport Package and about 65,000 miles on the odo. About 3 weeks ago my wife complained a couple of times about finding all 4 doors on the car locked when it had been sitting in the garage and she left it unlocked when she parked the car. I thought...
  4. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi everyone, I've got an issue with my 2011 535i: When I close the driver door, I can hear something near the lock or handle clicking/ticking multiple times (maybe 6 times). It could be a soft close issue or actuator or motor, but I wouldn't know exactly without replacing parts on by one, so...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Could someone who understands the model advise me please? A few years back I had a 3 series convertible which I could open and close the roof on the key fob, I have purchased a 2015 420 where I CAN open the windows with the key but NOT the roof and I am UNABLE to shut the roof, or the windows...
  6. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    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...
  7. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello I been having this issue for a while where the car kept dying from a parasitic draw when i lock the doors but its fine when i leave it unlocked. One day when the battery died it stopped turning over and will not even recognize the key as it doesnt give "key in ignition" warning when I open...
  8. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello everyone merry Christmas :):thumbup: Today my car wasn't starting. There was no turn over. I had EWS issues in the past so I went to check if the door chime and key in ignition warning on the cluster board was lighting up when I opened the door and it wasn't. Then after some testing...

    My 2008 335xi driver door will not lock with either my key, fob, or the button inside. I can't even push it down with my finger, what do I need to replace to fix it?
  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, So I already posted here on the same issue, but never really fixed it. My key only works for trunk and ignition (physically), for the drivers door I have a separate key, which implies that there is a new lock. Now, I recently was able to program the key, so now with a press of a button...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    So a month ago I wanted to put the soft top away and put the hard top on. It was 20 degrees in the garage here in wisconsin and the top seemed to not move or work well. I assume the cold temps were part of it. I pulled the motor release after the top seemed to interfere with the cover door and...
  12. General BMW Questions
    Hi All- I drive a 2015 328i. Yesterday a weird thing happened. I was pretty sure that I had locked by car with all doors closed when I parked it at a shopping center parking lot. When I came back to the parking lot, to my surprise, I see the door is open but locked. This is kinda weird to me...
  13. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I've lately encounter horrible issue. I parked my car, locked my steering wheel in the forward direction of the wheels, turned the car off and left. Afterwards, as usual, I tried to jiggle the wheel around to find to which direciton it goes, found it goes a little to left, well I turned left and...
  14. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I previously had a problem where my key wouldn't turn. I drilled a hole in the bottom of the steering lock assembly and freed the wheel and the key. Now the key turns fine but I can't get the ignition switch back on properly. ( I wish I hadn't removed it). The key turns and I can turn the...

  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi all, Did a bunch of searching and came across a few leads but nothing really solid. Here's the scoop: I have an 03 530i I swapped out an old door that had some rust for a cleaner door off another vehicle (02 525i). Initially, everything worked great. There was power to the door, I could...
  18. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2001 E53 X5 that has been sitting for a few weeks because it is in need of some work. I recently went to start the car and the battery was dead. I locked the doors and planned to come back to it later. Today the driver side lock will not disengage, all the doors are locked, and the...
  19. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey guys! My batter died with the key in the car and now im getting the RED ELV error. I have no idea how to fix cars but do not wanna spend the $$$$ to take it to the dealer. Can someone walk me through how to fix this? I'm seeing a lot of Tool 32 but I dont even know what to plug into the...
  20. General BMW Questions
    Decided to post this question in general section as it might apply to newer BMWs in general, but my question is about X5. So I recently bought my very first BMW, and one of the things that bothers me a lot is how lock button on remote works. So in my previous car, if I locked the car while...
