Question about BMW Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Bmw118i 2005 key fob has suddenly stopped LOCKING my car doors. It will still unlock the doors & the boot & no problem with starting the car, just won't lock the doors?!?

Key fob is batteryless model, self-charging, and the spare key fob is doing exactly the same thing - so not a problem with the key it would seem.

If you can take apart it will be dirt gave it a clean or if it could be a worn open switch you may need a new fob.

    Strange that both fobs are doing exactly the same thing though? Doesn't that make it more likely that is it somehow the door mechanism? Do the doors operate on a fuse perhaps? Any idea where that fuse might be?

    I have cracked open the fob in the past, when I was incorrectly advised that it needed a new battery - only to find it doesn't have a battery! I am loath to crack it open again as I had to glue it back together previously - it is not designed to open.

SOURCE: my passenger door central locking has stopped

Method 1: Press lock or unlock button 4 times in succession. Method 2: Switch ignition ON and OFF. Within 10 seconds press lock and unlock button in succession.
This is the only manual reset
If this does not work go to your local auto electrician
The probable fault could be central locking activator passenger door

Where's the door locks on the inside of my 2005 Jaguar S Type?


If you press the unlock button on the key fob twice when you first unlock the car this unlocks all the doors and the boot. If you have only pressed it once only the drivers door is unlocked. If you have only pressed it once and you have started the car push the locking button on the door and the pull it this will then unlock all the doors and boot too so you don't have the turn the car off and press the unlock button on the key fog again. The locking button or lever is located above the door opening handle inside the car the smaller one of the two

Doors on the 2005 2500 hd chev truck wont unlock or lock


They are very common for the door latch actuator assembly. Usually it starts when one particular door stops locking or unlocking. The lock rod will only partially go up or down, then gradually stop all together. The actuator used to be a separate component, however now it is integrated into the entire latch assembly. It most likely is the problem and will need replacing. If its just an issue that your key fob doesn't work anymore try replacing the battery in the fob. Then hold the lock and unlock buttons for 7 - 10 seconds to re-synchronize the transmitter.
