Having problems with your BMW 3 Series ?

My car is a 320i SE 2005. My central locking is just not working. The keyfob still activates and deactivates the alarm, it still opens the boot but only the drivers door will open with the actual key, but no other doors. the keyfob will then lock the drivers door but will not open it again. you cannot even open the other door from inside the car and the locking button inside the car does not open or lock the doors either ,only the drivers door will lock using this but will not open again. Any Id

There is a fuse for the central locking, check the user manual and find the fuse.

If the fuse blows again , then it is one of the actuators in the door, that is shorted and must be replaced.

If the fuse is OK and the central locking still does not work, then there is a switch module.

If that does not work you can also try disconnecting the battery cable for one minute. You will need anti theft code for the stereo afterwards.

The central lock in known for having problems in the 2004-2006 Executive models (eg. E90 , E46). If you have one of those models, step at the nearest dealer and ask if the control module may need replacement.

Check fuse first.
