    I have this exact same problem. cannot get my doors to lock or unlock at all. Had to get a tow truck driver to break into the car for me so I could drive it home from work last night. Very frustrating. I'm taking it to the dealership tomorrow. Any ideas what could be wrong with it?

    My car has the similar problem when inserting the key to lock/unlock the doors. The key turns freely with little resistance in both directions. Fortunately I can still lock/unlock my doors with the key fob buttons!

I tried to program a new fob for a 1999 Altima. And nothing worked





1.   Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2.   Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3.   Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4.   Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.

5.   If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6.   Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.




Make sure you have the right fob for your car.

Key does not lock dirver side door


Most likely problem is the plastic connector inside the door broke or fell off. You need to take off the door panel and check. If it is broke you can get a new clip at most auto stores.

BMW 328i touring tailgate not opening


Have had this problem. Solve it by reading the owner's handbook, which gives clear instructions. Do not use the key in the tailgate door before reading the instructions.

BMW Power Locks don't work, how much to repair?


Before you bring it to a garage and pay good money check the fuses. Usually its as simple as that (located near the battery in the engine bay)

Hope this helps.
