    On my 1999 BMW323i I can not get the doors to open with the ignition key or the button inside the car. I can only open the passenger door manually, that is inserting the key at the door handle. Some times it works fine, but at times (frequently) I can not unlock the doors even with the door handles from inside the car. My mechanic (not a BMW expert) says it must be the key. Is there a way to test if it is the keys or a switch or something else?

    My 2001 330i intermittently has lock problems. When the problem occurs, the key only works manually in the driver's door (this model does NOT have key access through the passenger door). The other doors will not open, either manually or with the console 'unlock' switch, or with the key alone, or with the key in the driver's door! What is wrong, and what can I do to fix this. Having passengers crawl over the console to get out is very strange!

    I have the same problem. All doors do not unlock with remote. Could manually unlock driver side door using key.

Location of oil filter on BMW 323i coupe '99 reg and how to fit new cartridge

Both E36 and E46 models have oil filter under the hood, towards the front of the block. You will need a special socket to remove the oil filter cap and once it's out, can replace the filter. Make sure to replace the gasket on oil filter cap, it should come in oil filter kit you bought.

1999 bmw 323.I convertible

I'm not sure if yours is an E36 or an E46 model.
On the E46 a common AIR BAG error light is caused by the stretching of a cable underneath the driver's seat when it is slid back and forth (usually when vehicle is shared by different height drivers!).
Unfortunately the solution is replacing this cable (quite cheap), then having the code read and extinguished by a code reader at Bmw (-expensive hourly rates though).
Some other places have code readers like vehicle electrics/alarms specialist -but the cable is still needed to be replaced first (2 min job) -I think ebay has one at the moment (but compare prices with Bmw Dealer parts prices first).
Check Google with airbag light and Bmw E46 (there's shed loads of info).
