SOURCE: Boot will not unlock with the remote button from key fob

Yes, this is what makes the Germans so cool!

Step one, replace battery in key foob. If that doesnt work proceed to next step.

Your BMW has a central locking system overide solution.

insert your main key into the driver door. before turning the key lift the door handle as if your opening the door, then turn the key all the way clockwise....it should go further than it ever has....it should make all the door latches POP! If this doesnt work, Try it while turning the key counterclockwise.

If this doesnt work, make sure you have your radio code and take off the negative battery cable overnight on your car. Then attach it after 12 hours and repeat above steps.

This should work, this is what they will do at the dealer and charge you about $700 :-)

SOURCE: The front passenger side door lock responds slowly

Okay
I have and still have the same problem! one thing I did read was it's the lock itself inside the door, which if youdont get it sorted will be a pricey job. My drivers side door has now completly closed now and won't open (having to jump over other side to drive) Anyhow it can be done yourself but it's a fiddley job.

SOURCE: central locking does not work on my BMW 320D SE model

hi

there is a motor placed inside the doors for the operation of the central lockin system. when you open the door by key this motos is activated and all door locks are released. your problem may because of this motor is failed.

cause of the failure
1.the wire going to the motor may be chopped off.
2.the junction box connecting the wires may be damaged.
3.fuse may be blown out.
4.motor itsef damaged.

so please check weather power is coming to the motor using multi meter. if the power is not coming to it then the problem is with the wires. if the power is coming to it then problem is with the motor.

i suggest you to take to BMW because you need to remove the door pannel its better if they do it.


please vote me if my answer was useful to you.

I have bmw 120d and parked last night this morning the remote control key dead.i tried the manual key alarm went off but put the starter key in and still nothing and cant move gear .everyrthing dead..


Hi Fred
this looks like as you set your alarm ( with key as normal on lock) the immobiliser is in and you will not be able to start your car in the state if you can send me some more information, like year and cubic capacity i will find out if you can reset your key fob yourself or it will need to go to a dealer to be reset.

Immobiliser not allowing me to start rthe ca


How do you know it's the immobiliser, what tests have you done?
I suggest you try a BMW forum, but you'll have to be bothered to give a lot more info than you gave here. There are lots of things that it could be, the battery in the fob, the sensor ring, your car battery, the ignition switch, try another key etc etc BMW Forum BMWLand or http://www.bmwforums.info/

I need to disable an immobiliser on my mg/tf car


If your key fob has just stopped working try this:

  1. Unlock your vehicle with the key in the drivers door lock, do not open the door.
  2. Press the right hand button lock button (the button with the padlock symbol or the dimpled button) on the key fob 4 to 8 times.

If the above fails try this:

  1. Open the key fob
  2. Remove the battery
  3. Press any button 10 ten times, and the same with the other button
  4. Refit the battery or a new battery
  5. Unlock the vehicle with the key in the drivers door lock, do not open the door
  6. Press the right hand button lock button (the button with the padlock symbol or the dimpled button) on the key fob 4 to 8 times

Tried to open car with fob but wouldnot open so used key which let me in but did not turn off the immobiliser so car wont start. Only drivers door will open and lock how do i get immobiliser to turn off...


The RCDLR (remote control door lock receiver) could have failed, or the battery in your key fob is dead. The only way to get the immobilizer off is to use the key fob.

I have a bmw 316ti compact on a 52 reg. The central locking gave up working 3mths ago and we was useing the key to lock and unlock the car,then all ov a sudden we couldnt start the car.when you put the...


with any BMW they have their problems, one is the central locking/immobilizer, the central locking is linked into the immobilizer and vice versa, the immobilizer takes it signal to disarm from the central locking and the ignition key ring. (chip in the key) if one of these starts to play up it has loads of consequences this being one of them. they all need to work together for the system to work properly. you would need to read the alarm and immobiliser codes using an ob2 tool that can detect them, and find the fault some problems it can be the drivers door sensor in the lock this is the main door as its drivers side and it controls all other doors on the central locking. if the switch is worn in any of it movements the system will not know the door has been opened, this does not work on the interior light as that is a switch in the door frame. the door lock is lock unlock and deadlock with key with remote fob its also arm disarm alarm and immobiliser. i have seen in some models there is a sensor auto lock so when you walk away with the key the doors lock automatically all lease parts work together. any one having a problem can cause no signal to be sent to the others in the system to start engine .
