Fuse 56 and 57 control central locking,the issue is caused by surges typically in the front door lock actuators, normally at a dealer they would replace fuse 56 and 57 with a 20a mini fuse and if still occuring repl the door lock(s) that dont work or typically both front, first replace fuse 56 and 57 with 20a fuses as were too small from factory and than operate ten to 15 times, if it doesnt work at first dont panic,let the car go to sleep which takes about 16 min and than try again this problem has nothing to do with the key fob or the lock unlock button inside,also the fuses are located behind the glove box just rere the access panel and they are found at lower left section

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.

    Same problem here. Key fob only locked drivers side door but would not unlock. Had to unlock with the key. Central lock button did not responds. Checked #57 fuse and it was blown. Replaced and would still not work. Started the vehicle, then it worked. Problem solved. I remember when I unlocked it the first time it failed. I remember pressing key fog awkwardly. Must have jolted the wiring somehow. Thanks you findinghomes! Nice to save a trip to the dealer. Probably would have said it was something major.

Change the fuse 46 or 47 and that should fix your problem!

This is a fuse problem. 2006 325i has 4 or 5 fuses that control door locks. There is a fuse diagram card on the back of the fuse box access panel. Check the fuses that are for door locks and replace the bad fuses.

insert the key into the drivers side or passender side front door, twist the key and pull open on the handle at the same time and the door will open. It might take a few times to get it, but this does work, source BMW AG Munich.

WHY DOESNT MY DOORS DOESNT UNLOCK/LOCK USING THE REMOTE ON A 2006 BMW 3251


Hi
either the battery is u/s..or it needs reprogramming, i would do both anyway, just change battery in the key, then ( if you google how to re-program a 325i key) there is a sequence you do to program it to your car and it is relativley easy as i have done it to my 325i
hope this helps.

2006 325 i door locks not working driver door will lock and other doors stay open if drivers door is locked it needs to be open manually back doors were locked by hand and now wont open by remote


I had a very similar situation. Was very annoying not being able to unlock or lock doors from pannel control nor from remote.
Only driver door can be opened with manual key.

Solution: One of the 15 amp purple fuses was blown. Fuses are located inside glove compartment, the interior end has to be removed releasing the two locks.
Use a light and the red tool located on the panel to remove fuses.

I just had a 2005 bmw 325i picked up by a towing company because the keys were locked in it. They used a slim jim to open the door and get the keys but now the car won't start.


you could try re-setting the key fob/remote by re-programming it, here is how
1,unlock car as normal with the key..not remote 2,get in car and close drivers door make sure all doors closed! 3,switch ignition on then off ( do not turn it over to run) 4.remove key 5,press and hold UNLOCK button ( do not let it go) 6,press LOCK button 3 times within 10 seconds (all 3 presses) 7,release UNLOCK button you should then ( dependent on model type) either see LED flash slowly for 10 seconds, or the central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly a few times to indicate a successful reprogram of the key, hope this helps

How to program a previously used bmw keyless remote for a different 2006 bmw 325i


1) Get in and close all doors.
2) Turn on the ingition and turn off quickly. (No more than 5 seconds) to start the process. Next action must take place within 30 seconds.
3) Remove the 1st key.
4) Hold the key up near your left shoulder (this is so it is closer to the remote reciever antenna - someone else suggested this).
5) Hold down the unlock button (which is button 1 on my key) and press the lock button 3 times (center button on my key). Release the unlock button and the doors lock which confirms the operation.
6) Quickly repeat steps 4 & 5 for key #2 etc.
If it does not work, try doing the keys in opposite order. Key 2 then key1, vs 1 then 2
