This is a common fault on the series 3 e46 model and is usually down to the General Module 5 or GMV. Usually a relay problem. This item is situated behind glove box and is not to difficult to replace.

Hi, I have a Holden Astra TS city 98 model car and the remote on the key will open all the doors except the drivers door, so to lock all doors I have to put the key in the drivers door or use the remote &...


A plastic clip that holds the lock linkage is probably broke or worn. You need to pull of the inner door panel to see whats going on inside. Use the remote and see whats happening. It could be bent rod in door from someone using a slim jim to unlock it when they locked the keys in it at some point. Bend the rod and try the remote again untill it works properly.

Doors not opening even if they are unlocked


My 2009 Sebring does the same thing occasionally but only the drivers door gets stuck (dead locked - even though the locks appear to pop up).
The solution I have found once this happens is:
1) The car needs to be driven (crawl in thru the passenger door) -even just a short distance
2) Engine shut off & doors locked with remote (after you've exited from the passenger door of course)
3) Leave turned off for 10 minutes
4) Doors will now open when unlocked with the remote

My drivers side rear door will not open from the inside or outside


I had exact problem Santa Fe 2007 2008 lock was stuck in locked position and door would not open from inside or out. All other doors would unlock with auto key remote. Carefully work the inside lock towards the open position as you lock and unlock the door with the remote. As you press unlock try to assist the lock to open. I did this a few times and the lock became free to the open position and all worked perfectly after this.

I CAN NOT OPEN THE DRIVER DOOR PASAGER DOOR AND REAR DOOR BY KEY


If I understand you correctly your saying that the only door on your van that you can unlock with a key or remote is the sliding side door and that all the other doors will not unlock with the key or the remote? If this is the case then the two front doors most likely have a problem with the fuse to the actuators so you should check the fuse in the fuse box which may be located either under the drivers dash or in the engine compartment on the drivers side over the wheel well.

Drivers power lock will not unlock with remote.


the door lock actuator is defective, they get really hard to move when they go bad, that is why the difficulty with the key.

My door locks don't work, and my remote will only open the driver


Check door switch connection under door pad in drivers door. Sounds like the electrical connection that sends power from the main door (drivers side) to other door has failed or wiggled loose.

Power door locks do not work at all lights flash when remote is used to unlock doors. automatic lock feature does not work Once manually unlocked, sliding side doors work ok. tail gate can be used to opens...


the reason the locks dont work more then likely there is a code stored in the bcm for a lock output circuit normally caused by one if not both of the sliding door acuators. even if you change the acuators the locks still will not work until the code is cleared.
