You need to replace the lock actuator in the doors that are not locking/unlocking with the door switch/remote. If the remote works for most of the doors then it is fine. The actuator is what moves the lock when it gets the signal from the remote or door switch to move it.
Good luck

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 323i Passnger Door lock will not lock / unlock w/ remote

Replace fuse 57 (15 amp) then disconnect battery and wait 30 to 45 minutes before reconnecting the battery.

My 2006 BMW 325I had the same problem with the door locks not responding. I checked all related fuses and found #57 (15 amp) was the only related fuse blown. I put in a new fuse and it still would not work. I then disconnected the battery for a while then once I reconnected the battery everything worked fine.

I believe I blew the fuse while repeatedly pushing the unlock button rapidly while walking across the parking lock to the car. I suggest only pushing the unlock button only once or twice.

Cant get my 99 xj8 out of valet mode, and my trunk will not open.


There are Valet keys (often with a green knob) that will
only unlock the front doors and the ignition but not the
glove box nor boot/trunk.

When either the front door locks or the console button is
pressed, all the doors should lock. Likewise, when either
front door is unlocked, all the doors fuel filler lid and if
selected, the boot will also unlock.

Boot lock has three positions. Unlocked to the left,
automatic with the doors in the center, always locked to the
right. Simply remove the key in what ever position you desire.

The locks can get confused and not work correctly. Simply
sit in the car and manually lock all the doors. That will
usually get the locking module sane again.

XJ8 - central locking fails to operate on one door (driver's) only.


Hi
it may be the central locking motor on that door, but firstly try freeing it up, they sometimes get stiff and just need some WD40 spray all around the lock,mechanism and if you are able to get to the motor spray that also, you will have to remove the door trim to get to the motor its a fairly simple job. Once you have sprayed everything lock and unlock the door with both the key and the remote repeatedly.

Hope this helps

Key remote wont work even with new batteries


The remote likely needs to be reprogramed. If you have both remotes you will need to take these to the dealer and have them reprogramed.

GRAND PRIX KEY FOB PROGRAMMING INSTRUCTIONS 
Important 
Once the Keyless entry receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode, the programming of the first transmitter erases all previous transmitter programming information. You must then program all of the transmitters.

Program only 1 vehicle remote control door lock receiver at a time. If you program multiple receivers simultaneously, the same transmitter could possibly be programmed to more than 1 remote control door lock receiver. 

Perform the following steps:
Sit in the vehicle driver's seat. (actually it’s much eazy er from the front pass seat) 
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder. 
Close all of the vehicle's doors. 
Remove the MALL PGM fuse from the fuse panel. Refer to Electronic Diagnosis in Body and Chassis. 
Turn the ignition lock cylinder to the ACC position. 
Turn the ignition lock cylinder OFF, then back to ACC within 1 second. 
Open and then close any vehicle door. You will hear a chime when the remote control door lock receiver enters the programming/diagnostic mode. If you do not hear a chime, start again at step 1.

Important 
After 7 seconds, you may hear a chime confirming successful synchronization. After approximately 14 seconds, you will hear a chime confirming successful programming.

Press and hold the transmitter LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously for 14 seconds. 
Repeat step 8 in order to program each additional transmitter. 
Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder. 
Install the MALL PGM fuse back into the fuse panel. Refer to Electrical Diagnosis in Body and Chassis. 
Validate that all the transmitters that were programmed operate properly. Refer to Keyless Entry System Operation.

Good luck and hope this helps.
