You need to resync the locks - it's easy. Lock doors from driver side - to first lock click. Then go around to passenger door and from outside, unlock & relock doors. Sometimes more than once is required but after a few trys, if that doesn't fix it, it will need new door lock actuator.

HOW DO I FIND THE LOCATION OF THE 2001 BMW X5 3.O emergency fuel door release?


Open the boot and to the right hand side of the boot you will see a green round button pull on it and it will pull the locking actuator back allowing you to open the fuel flap, if you can't see the green button then it may have dropped behind the boot cover and you will need to pull the cover back to get to the green pull button.

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

Normally by turning key in door lock this resets alarm also try passenger as well-owners manual should also give clues-try lubricating your lock with a can of triflow to free up tumblers also you may have poorly cut key or tumbler issues-if you can't find a can of triflow-wd-40 in a pinch.

1990 BMW 318i central locking problem


As for vehicle made in 1990 and when it comes to BMW I'd suggest you to contact garage, to solve BMW's problems, but in other hand it sounds like complete electronics malfunction, so it might be expensive, asspecialy when it comes to 19 years old vehicle. It might take a while to solve it, but we can try.
So before we start stripping your car I need to know couple of things.
Dooes your vehicle has an alarm system controlled by the same remote, or is it for imobiliser and/or central locking only?
Would be nice if you would have any ideas about the type of alarm and/or imobiliser system, as it would be easier to get to solution.
Try to lock yourself inside the car and when locking listen very carefully where does the clicking sound comes from, as for lights relays are being used, so by finding the source of clicking sound you'll get to the location of alarm/imobiliser/central locking system. So after that we will know where all the work is needed. Also I'd like you to note any identification marks from the unit. Usually it is being placed under the panel, next to the passengers right feet but in some cases it might be just above the dirvers knees, under the dashboard, rarely even under the back seat. so first thing that we need to do is to find the exact unit.

Also as for so old vehicle try to get to the wires which goes from the car body to the door (passenger), as due to age wires might be snapped or damaged, preventing doors from lock/unlock commands.
If unable to lock manually you nead to strip out the door-lock itself, wash it with something like WD-40 and add some grease. Nothing electronicaly can prevent manual operation of the door-lock. not in 1990.


So if you are not experienced try to use this message backwards, and I bet you'll get the results before the message ends.

Central locking wont stay open


Here's what I suspect is happening. The door locks will lock and unlock normally when the key is OUT of the ignition. If the key is IN the ignition, the doors cannot be locked (manually, key fob, or otherwise, if the system is operating as designed - prevents the doors being locked when the key is in the ignition). I've seen this problem before, but on a Santa Fe, not an Accent. The ground signal of the right hand front passenger door was lost, and the doors automatically locked. Perhaps something similar is happening in the circuit between the ETACS module and the right front passenger door lock/unlock actuator. Could be anywhere in the circuit.
