Not likely a fuse if other door lock works. the little red blinking light comes on when factory alarm sets and alarm isn't setting because the drivers side door latch is not working properly and alarm thinks the door is still open because of micro switch in latch not tripping.

Power windows stopped working and dome lights stay on. Power locks work only with the "clicker" but not on driver door


Look under the hood fuse no. 12 should be for power windows. Or maybe something like a bad ground wire in drivers door harness.

Running with no oil is death for the motor ( Seized). When the alternator stopped working because the engine stopped the door lock control opened the door locks as it said you were below the required speed to have them locked

Power door locks won't work and the instrument pnnel lights won't turn on. I replaced blown fuse a 20mp one in position 14 I believe. worked ok till I tried to lock the doors, the fuse blew


Hello. Try looking at the black earth that goes from the drivers door and into the A frame which is covered in a rubber sheath. The wire can break after opening and shutting the door over several years and as it's normally the thicker wire is more prone to break. Also check the other wires visually for any chaffing and tugging on each wire. If more electrical parts start failing, air con blowers etc it will be an earth. Hope this helps

I have the same problem - Drivers door windows wing mirrors and drivers door lock not working also air bag light on. The car has been to a BMW specialist for over a week as the drivers door dead locked.
The mechanic used his diagnostic gadget which showed a problem with the drivers door. All other doors windows locks work except drivers door. Has check the power supply to the drivers door switch all ok. Is the problem with this internal window control switch and how does this affect the drivers door lock?
