OK, so the '13 Soft Close was working fine on all doors and then all of a sudden the drivers door no longer functions. There is no sound from the motor trying to close the door at all. I checked the fuses and all 4 are operational. I am not aware of a setting in Idrive or anywhere else that would disable the function but that is almost what it seems like accidentally was done.

I have poked around the other series forums and others have mentioned the motor trying to grab but doesn't, also a misalignment of the latch etc but those solutions start from at least a noise coming from the motor.

Hoping I don't have to replace the entire $450 motor assembly and there is something I am missing.

Diagram above.......any thoughts ?

Yeah I have checked ebay. Haven't seen any those price yet. Replacement didn't look very hard from what I have seen.

Sorry to revive an old thread - my 2012 decided to stop soft-close latching the drivers door - any suggestions? The motor still works as I can hear it but it fails to latch entirely....it will latch if you apply some pressure as it cycles the mechanism....
