Question about 2000 BMW 3 Series
When leaving my car I use the key to lock the doors and sometimes the key won't lock the car why?
Have you tried penetrating spray at latch assy & try to get as much in behind as possible, as well as sticking nozzle right in key hole & spray quick , let sit, and do it a few times? Keep working the key after, and keep applying spray until working freely as it should. Remember, not only does drivers door usually get most use, but it also gets most road spray from passing vehicles. I've has some where I have to remove inside door panel, just to get all the linkages in there. After moving freely, i usually apply some spray grease, such as White Lithium, same way, just to prevent future problems.

you have to replace door lock completely , there is small plastic gear on electric motor which moves locking mechanism and seems that gear is broken, but it is not available as separate part.

Try not carrying your remote in your pocket. To turn off the honk, hold the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously for at least 2 seconds.
