    Hey guys I recently got a 535i Sport on a 1990.

    The central locking wont unlock with the remote and wont open through the key in the drivers door lock.
    When trying to open the passenger door via key it opens and locks immediately. But if I'm quick I can get the door open in time.
    The alarm works fine and the remote will activate and deactivate it and the remote also locks the car just wont open it.

    ANY IDEAS?

    In addition to this I took the car knowing it required a new ignition barrell as the old one is no longer there, apparently it broke! I dont suppose this is linked but who knows.

    If anyone is local to Perth and can help me out (as a homer), please get in touch, thanks.

    This will be a process of elimination, if it's only the passenger door that locks back down then I'd start by removing the door panel and removing the actuator then trying the locking again. See guide here on removing the door panel. http://www.bmw4life.com/doorLockActuator.htm
