    hi guys,
    im having a problem with central locking on my e34, only the drivers door opens manually with key and my immobiliser wont work. i found loose wires in the boot of my car, i moved them and the central lockin started moving up and down like mad. i fixed all the wires in boot and checked all the fuses and still wont work. i removed the battery for a few minutes and tried again and the central lockin worked all doors locked and opend twice and then stoped working again. this also happend when i removed a brown fuse from under the seat and put it back in. help please

    Hi,
    (you don't say where in the boot you found the loose wires.)

    I had a similar problem last year and one of the guys here helped me get it sorted. It was broken wires in the boot loom, shorting and blowing fuses and causing other crazy stuff to happen.


    When you open the boot lid, the hinge on the left side (passenger) has all the wiring for the rear lights, boot central lock (which is part of imobiliser).
    Take the plastic cover off and unwind the tape that holds it all nice and neat. Go through all the wires, one by one and see if any are broken or if there is any copper showing. Solder the broken wires and wrap them individually with electrical tape.

    Hope this helps,
    Good luck,
    ian

    yes, the wires at the hinge on the left side of the boot lid where all melted to each other. it was a rite mess, managed to get them all individually wraped with electrical tape. still not working. now car wont start and i think its because the imobiliser.

    Check the fuses again,under the back seat, now that you've got the bootlid loom sorted.

    The bounce is when it sends a signal to open the doors and one or more locks fails to send the open signal back.

    When the car is double locked, it will immobilise the car too.
