Door lock issue could be several things. The switch is usually the cause, but the relay could also cause this. The convertible top is usually the relay in the trunk. It is on the upper area of the rear seat, in the middle of the trunk. Replace it. I have replaced them before, and the new relay did not work. I re-wired some of these with two relays. One for up control and one for down control. Have fun.

SOURCE: door locks wont work and top wont come down

yes it sounds like that is where u need to start by checking the fuse. I think u will find this fuse in your main fuse panel. Yet I would be surprised if both of these are on just one fuse. If you find more than one fuse blown you could have a short of some kind. But start with the fuse panel.

Turn on the radio so the battery is engaged, or turn on the engine.

  • 2 Fold down the cargo partition in the trunk and lock it on both sides. If the cargo partition is not down, there will be no place in the trunk to store the convertible top.
  • 3 Press the convertible button forward to open the top. It's located under the circular control button on the consul. The button has a picture of a window with one arrow pointing up and another pointing down.
  • 4 Pull the convertible button backward to close the top.
  • 5 Use your key to open or close the top when you are outside of the BMW but still close to it. Press and hold the arrow button on top of your key to open the top. To close the top, press and hold the Lock button. The car does not need to be turned on to operate the top with the key.

    The windows wont roll down, the auto lights dont work, the door locks wont lock, the remote mirrors wont work,

    There is a black ground wire in the door that is a bit thicker than the others. This has a tendency to break after time. You need to cut the casing where the wires are, strip down the black wire coating and reconnect the wire. Then either sodder or tape the wire up and you will be just fine.
    Free and easy way to fix the problem.

    Convertable top wont go down..I hear motor running

    Your top motor is in the trunk on the drivers side wall behind the panel. Remove the two screws to remove the cover. Check the fluid level in the reservor. Check that no lines have come off of the pump and have someone pushing the top down button while checking. If this is not the problem, then it is a possibility that the e-brake connection is not working right.
