Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series
I purchased the vehicle a couple of months ago. That time I noticed a problem when locking the doors with the remote control (stock system). The signals telling "car is armored" did not blink and the red radar under the rare-view mirror does not blink also.
Then the problem has gone itself and lately appeared again.
I also noticed that if I open the passenger door (physically) and close it again, the car gets armored on locking again. Everything works OK before I drive again. After I stop the engine and get off the car, the problem re-produces in exactly the same fashion and is solved exactly the same way.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: BMW remote control problem
I have a e60 525i that I just brought and it has the same problem, the owners manual suggests driving with the key in the ignition for a long time as the batteries are rechargable and may have gone flat, i have tried this and it doesnt seem to work
i also read something about getting water in the aerial about the rear window and that wrecks the receiever. My car isn;t under warranty so not looking forwarding to taking it to bmw

SOURCE: Central Locking not working
I'm running a E34 Tds Touring with a similar problem, my rear doors and tailgate have dropped of the central locking circuit.
I have been told it is the Central locking Module a large black box under the dash that is faulty, apparently a common problem.
Hope this points you in the right direction,
Please remember to rate my effort!

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.
