You would need to decide what is wrong with the door in the first place - mechanical or electrical fault.

Could need new central lock module, fuel door button, fuel door motor, door could be siezed/jammed, etc, etc.....

SOURCE: doors on 2007 BMW 328i will not unlock

hey solo, 06-07 door lock actuators can blow a fuse in the glove box. bmw does have a specific bulletin that addresses this issue and requires replacing the fuse if blown and measure the resistance of all the door lock actuators to determine which is bad. the doors should be able to be opened with the key mechanically. if not for some reason, you should be able to comfort open the windows and will have to crawl inside the car. the fuse panel is inside the glove box and not fun to get to. I believe the fuse is a 10 or 15 amp fuse maybe 5th from the bottem right.

SOURCE: Is there an emergency release for the fuel door on

You'll have to remove the trim on the inside of the car right behind the fuel tank in order to release it manually.

If you're lucky, the cable may have separated either at the fuel door, or at the lever and you may be able to run a new cable by threading it through the old one. Otherwise, you'll have to remove all the trim to trace the cable. You may also be lucky and that the cable runs under the bottom of your car

1998 bmw 328i input time light is on

You need to set the clock. Press and hold the "Clock" button then use the 1,10,100,1000 buttons to change the time. When you're done press the "set" button.

These instructions are for a 93 but the process should be similar for your version.

1997 bmw 328i not starting

Come on give us more information. Think if you were trying to fix your own problem and you had to explain the problem to someone else with exactly no knowledge of what's going on.

1st off....a key with bad electronics and reader will open the door and that's it.

So that being said does the key turn the engine? If so the key, the program and ecu are ok. Say the engine cranks but doesn't start. Fuel pump. unscrew the access plug on the fuel rail and see if any fuel squirts out. NO......don't ever do this when it's hot..........not that yours is because it doesn't run but I had to say that. The millisecond you turn your key over to get it to try to start...the fuel pump comes on and pressurizes the entire fuel system.

Got fuel pressure, the engine turns but still no start= ignition spark plug engine computer problems.
