Question about 2003 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

I can only open my two rear doors on my rover 75 SE classic 1.8, when i open the doors with my fob (2 presses) all the pins pop up but i can only physically open the drivers door and the front passenger door it feels as though the two rear doors are still locked?, could the mechanisms be seized?, the car has been stood for a while until i bought it on friday night.

If the car has been stood for a long unattended period then yes the door rubbers could have stuck the door closed,or the central locking solonoids have have stuck but you did say the knobs go up and down so iam not sure about this one.This is another hands on type thing where i need the car in front of me,but one thing you could try is get a nice big piece of cardboard,climb in back of car and with a nice dolly bird as an assistant to hold the door handle up from outside place cardboaur over trim lay on seat in a compromising position and give a sharp kick with both feet on the end of door furtherest from the hinges.have to be explicit in case your a colonial cousin....if this doesnt work then call a mobile mechanic as this is definatly a hands on type of job.with lots of variables depending on the model of jam jar

Fob not will not open or lock even though its working


How do you know it is working?? if it wont open or close the doors, it might just be a flat battery in the remote. Try changing the battery first.

Key fob will not open or lock doors on a rover 75


Three possibilities - either the fob has stopped working, the receiver or other on-car devices has stopped working or the system has developed amnesia and forgotten the code.

Using the spare fob might persuade it to work or if you haven't a spare you could try a new battery in the one you do have. A friend left his fob and keys on top of the microwave oven once and it wiped the code from the memory.

The owner or user can do little more than fit a new battery. Specialised equipment is needed and no little amount of experience to test the system, diagnose and rectify the faults.
The dealer or an auto locksmith would provide the answer.

It may be set in the main menu to lock only by the fob. I know on GMC's there are about 7 different locking options. I'm not a specialist in Land Rovers but the cheapest way out is to check all your options on the dash/steering wheel buttons.
