Question about BMW 3 Series

1 Answer

My car is a 320i SE 2005. My central locking is just not working. The keyfob still activates and deactivates the alarm, it still opens the boot but only the drivers door will open with the actual key, but no other doors. the keyfob will then lock the drivers door but will not open it again. you cannot even open the other door from inside the car and the locking button inside the car does not open or lock the doors either ,only the drivers door will lock using this but will not open again. Any Ideas please

Hi.

There is a fuse for the central locking, check the user manual and find the fuse.

If the fuse blows again , then it is one of the actuators in the door, that is shorted and must be replaced.

If the fuse is OK and the central locking still does not work, then there is a switch module.

If that does not work you can also try disconnecting the battery cable for one minute. You will need anti theft code for the stereo afterwards.

The central lock in known for having problems in the 2004-2006 Executive models (eg. E90 , E46). If you have one of those models, step at the nearest dealer and ask if the control module may need replacement.

Check fuse first.

Regards.

I have a 2005 cobalt every time I open the doors the alarm goes off I replaced the battery in keyless entry but they do not work can anyone help?


You may have accidentally broke the controller. They are fragile. The newer cars like yours automatically set the alarm when the doors are locked from keychain remote, or locking manually. New remote, $50-100.

I have a 2005 JGC 5.7 hemi and sometimes remotes wont work only when you want to unlock it.If you use the key to open door alarm sounds. what could be the problem?


Have you tried a new battery in the remote, or do you have a second remote you can test. Either your remote is worn out or the battery is dead.
Once you lock the car with your remote it will active the alarm and if you use your key it won't deactive the alarm only your remote will, on some cars putting the key in the ignition will deactive it.
If you can deactive your alarm with your remote and can just manualy lock and unlock your doors and that should prevent your alarm from going off until you get a new remote or battery.

Central locking not being activated by remote


somehow the car when on valet mode, go to a alarm shop , they should be able to re arm your car without to much damage to your pocket, or read your cars manual, it might inform you on how to fix the problem.

1999 Audi A3 1.8T Electric Windows and Central Locking Won't work


will your passenger door open with the key and is it just one side that your windows are not working or both. if its just one side it might be your regulator motor in the door thats not working if its both it might be your central locking pump usually in the boot. however if both of them are working fine it could be that your key needs reprogrammed however i think the 1st 2 are more likely to be the problem.

Central locking not working


Firstly establish if your c/locking is factory fitted or after market. If factory fitted check the fuse box for any blown fuses. If after market then their is a fused +12v line running to a normally black unit which controls the C/Locking, check that. If no luck with that take it to a fitment center who can diagnose that within 5 minutes
