Why suddenly wont my key turn in my ignition?


Try turning the steering wheel a bit and holding it so that it takes pressure off locking mechanism. Then turn key. When I first got my 530 I had to call the dealer to figure this out.
Hopefully it works for you.

The first thing to do would be to check all fuses. Sometimes a very random blown fuse can cause this. Also unhook the battery for one hour to reset all systems, and try a jump start if you have not just to be sure it isn't a battery issue. Also try locking/unlocking the key driver's door a few times using the key in the door. If the fuses are good and the battery reset does not help, nor a jump or key in the door, then there are a few other things that can cause this such as bad key - try another one, bad brake light switch, the switch is above the brake pedal, shifter not fully in park (auto transmission only) - try moving it around a bit, bad transmission position switch, bad clutch switch, dead starter/solenoid/relay or bad ignition switch/cylinder/start button.

My 1992 bmw 325i has a locking problem. When I lock the driver's door it instantly unlocks.


Sounds like the contacts in one of the switches are sticking. If the switches are easily removeable - remove the wires from one at a time and try the one that is still connected. If one is stuck in the unlock position it may just override.

think you are past the manual stage its down to old fashioned know how ,remove the steering lock complete ,two bolt with heads sheared off ,try to tap anticlockwise with a centre punch and hammer ,if no joy then cut it off with a small radial cutter without damaging anything and remove the coil around the lock first ,its the factory immobilisor

1992 BMW 325i locks work some times and don't work sometimes ???


It's probably the door strike switch. If that switch isn't engaged or is malfunctioning, it will immediately unlock the doors as a fail safe. Check that first I'd say.

2001 BMW 325i - Key no longer unlocking doors.


if you have a bmw 325i 2001 model try this solution:
if you have one key , go on to the next step. if you have more than one key, like two or more than follow this procedure.

step one: unlock the doors with your key and get in and close the doors but do not lock them
step two: put your key into the ignition and turn it but not to start the engine, do this less than 5 seconds

step three: take the key out of the ignition and put it near the shifter. press and hold the unlock button while pressing the lock button 3 times. you have 30 seconds to do this. the doors should lock and unlock automatically signalling that it the key has been reprogrammed. if you have more than one key follow those steps for each one except for step one. remmember you have only 30 seconds for each key. that should help you.
