Question about 1999 BMW 328 Series
The key will not lock or unlock my doors from either the driver's door or the passenger's door. The key works as it should if it is used in the trunk. From the trunk it can both lock and unlock the doors. Is this just a fuse problem or is there one central solenoid/ actuator? Thanks, Bill and Lauren
Hi, this sounds like the door barrel may have broken, to check it with the door open you will see a rubber sealing bung about 4 inches above the door catch, if you remove this you will see a 4mm hex bolt inside the door undo this and you should then be able to remove the barrel , this would not be a fuse or an actuator as the system works from the trunk and this works from the same system, hope this is of some help, regards mark.
