Question about 1990 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

Can't lock door's from inside with posts or outside with key?

I can't the lock my doors from the inside by pressing down on posts or from outside by turning the key.
The posts will not depress at all, and when I turn the key from the outside the lights go on and off inside the car but the doors will not lock?
To my knowledge this car does not have an alarm system, key is older type and nothing on dash to indicate one either.
Someone said it could be driver door actuator, any idea how much that might run new, or where is a good place online to find a used on?

Why is my driver side door not opening from the outside or inside of my mercury Milan 2006. Now it will open from the outside if I pull on the handle at the same time I hit unlock on the key fob?


Matthew, Interior door panel will have to come off to inspect, sounds like the automatic lock actuator is not extending far enough to unlock properly, the lock actauator probably needs replaced and make sure to lubricate everthing when door is apart, all latch,rods and mechanisms.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

General advise:The lock is not ok.The same wires that lock the doors,unlock it.Before removing the lock:ceck fuses,door wiring link (near the door hinges)U may have to figure out the link covered in removabile rubber(it has a lock pin and must pull down in some cars rotate)U can clean it by air gun and contact cleaner.Rare:The door unlock pin (small plastic knob that u unlock manually from inside)has the rod dirty/stucked/twisted,ceck it to move loose.Also spray chain lube and wd40 anywhere in the lock u gain acces (the key hole,from sides,from the pin lock).U can see if it is stucked if the unlock knob has the intention to rise (small moves) but does not pop.Cheers.

My drivers side rear door will not open from the inside or outside


I had exact problem Santa Fe 2007 2008 lock was stuck in locked position and door would not open from inside or out. All other doors would unlock with auto key remote. Carefully work the inside lock towards the open position as you lock and unlock the door with the remote. As you press unlock try to assist the lock to open. I did this a few times and the lock became free to the open position and all worked perfectly after this.

You will need to remove the inside door trim panel and check the three (3) rods and plastic connectors that connect:
(a) the inside door handle to the door mechanism
(b) the inside door lock knob/outside key lock cylinder to the door mechanism
(c) the outside door handle to door mechanism.

Most likely one (or more) of these rods have either become loose or the plastic lock clips have broken.
The "L" end of the rod goes thru the hole of the clip and the clip has a pivoting "U" shape that goes over and locks onto the rod.
Based on the your year (2000) it might be a good idea to remove all clips and rods; and remove the entire door mechanism. Inspect, clean, lubricate, and re-install it.

sounds like you may have to replace your door lock switch on the inside. Once too much water has laid on the switch it may have corroded the connection inside.

it sounds like the lock actuator inside the door has frozen. if that is the case, you will have to remove the inner door panel partially or fully to gain access to the actuator.if you press down on the door lock knob, does it move down.if not I would definitely suspect a failed actuator.
