It looks like your central locking mechanism has been attempted by possibly, by robbers, to force an entry. The locks safety feature sprang into action and locked everything except the drivers door which is operational with only the key. Thus look up the user manual for the model/type of car alarm/security system and find out how to deactivate this and return to normal mode. Alternatively contact the manufacturer of the ant-theft system installed in your car and they should be able to guide you in resetting the security system so that it behaves as it used to.................sodeep

Hello Sir,
Kindly check the following possibilities one by one to minimize your problem:

  1. Check the Glove box fuses.Especially the door lock fuse in the trunk (7.5A slot#53).
  2. You need to reset the Locking system and also do check the batteries\cells installed in the remote.
  3. There is a possibility that the motors and the switches needs to be serviced.
Above points will assist you to point out and to solve the problem.

Regards.

Go inside your trunk and on the the right access cover where the battery is located above the battery is a small fuse panel...Check fuses 54 and 56....The legend on the inside of the access cover should list the fuse for central locking....Check the fuse listed...If it is blown you probably have a failed fuel flap actuator

SOURCE: 2003 bmw 325i keys does not unlock and the door

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.

Open the door manually with the key!

Many Ford Escapes have power door locks as standard equipment. This system consists of a lock switch, lock actuator and wiring harness. When you depress the lock switch, it sends an electronic signal through the harness to the actuator. The actuator moves an internal piston that either pulls the actuator hook down or pushes it up. The actuator hook connects to the lock rod, which either locks or unlocks the door, depending on which way you push the lock button. While this system won't work with a dead battery, the mechanical lock system remains unaffected by electrical power loss.

Insert the door lock key into the driver's door lock.
Turn the key counterclockwise one quarter turn.
Pull the door handle up until the Escape's door opens. Once the driver door is open, simply open the remaining doors by pulling the interior door handles until the doors open.

If the key turns in the lock, but does nothing, then the linkage has become disconnected or broken. The key is mechanical to the lock and the lock has a electrical switch to operate the central locking unit. Could be a simple broken clip from the lock barrel. Hope this helps

Electronic door locks not working


It will be a bad microswitch in the mechanical lock driver's door and because of the microswitches do not get the impulse when other doors to unlock! Unfortunately, this microswitch is part of the lock and can be purchased separately! Only whole lock! ( Nr. 9. is it )5abc095.jpg

2002 bmw 530i key does not (remotely) unlock doors or trunk but they work fine manually.


Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button. Press lock button briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button depressed. Release unlock button. Some models: LED flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously.
