Question about 2003 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

I can't open my drivers side door to my 03' X5 3.0. When using keyless entry the other 3 drs open but the driver stays locked also manually tried inserting the key in the door and lifting the handle, but it just turns and stays locked. Could it be the cylinder in the door that needs replacing and it's this a costly repair?? Please advise. Thank you.

Sounds to me as if the vacuum or electric actuator is either non -functional or linkage is hung up, loose, or stuck, maybe just needs lubrication or loose wire/hose. Open the door panel and do a visual check on its operation; the fact that your handle will not operate the door tells me that the linkage has fallen off or come loose... add to your question with a reply if this does not help you...MK

Remove the doro finisher of your door.
Wirth a light, you should see a loose link rod between the key-lock and the door-lock. Just click it back in place.
If it is a zamac lock link, that's broken, you should replace the system

Try "resetting" your keyless entry code. Which is a fancy way of explaining that I broke my keyless entry key fob and had to order a new one. It came w/ instructions explaining how to get the new fob to speak to the car's computer. It was weird (turn key on and off 3 times, open and close door three times, etc. **I'm sure my neighbors were watching and laughing**), but it worked. I'll scan and email you the insrtuctions if you wish. Dan: dcarterlaw@lycos.com
