Simple your mechanism on the inside of the boot(catch mech) is spring loaded.just spray copious amounts of wd40 deep inside. if that dosent work then your catch/keep is twisted.

Central locking in my bmw 320 diesel isnt working it wont open the doors but it will start the engine , the spare key is the same so its not the battery of the keys


Providing central locking works when you insert key in lock,try programming keys
Enter car make sure all doors/windows are shut
Switch ignition on and off,remove key
PRESS AND HOLD UNLOCK BUTTON ON KEY
Press lock button on key 3 times whithin 10 seconds and release unlock
Central locking will lock/unlock rapidly to confirm reset
If your key is the type with bmw logo in the middle battery replacement is not possible,as it charges as you drive

My key does not open or lock my doors remotely had key checked and is sending a signal but still not working


You do not say what year your car is, here is standard programming for most bmw,s,after battery or key replacement or malfunction.
Unlock car,enter, make sure all doors boot etc are closed.
Switch ignition on and off,remove key.
PRESS AND HOLD unlock button.
Press lock button 3 times in 10 seconds
Release unlock button
Some models led flashes in key for 10 seconds
Later keys central locking will lock unlock rapidly to confirm reset.
Later keys without led has no battery replacement,as it charges as you drive.So if you have this type charge before reprogramming

Central Locking does not work


You must reset your remote control in order for the lock/unlock to work properly.

To reset remote you would:
1)Insert Key in Ignition Turn to Position 1(Don't Start the Engine) for about 5 seconds
2)Turn Key Off and HOLD the LOCK button on Remote while pressing the UNLOCK 3 TIMES
3)Release both lock and unlock buttons you are holding
4)All doors should automatically unlock

And exit the door and lock with the Remote.

E36 BMW 318I CENTRAL LOCKING A. I bought a 2nd hand 1995 BMW 318I in South Africa. Good condition. No owner?s manual. Everything worked ok for a few months. Then the batteries of the remote key transmitter...


try locking and unlocking the car with the key 3 times slowly ,other than that i have no idea ?? another trick is to disconnect battery and join the cables together for a few minutes to discharge any capacitors that may be holding a charge in the computer..Only other thing i can think of is the main dealers who have the right connectors and software to re set it all .sorry i havent been of any help
