    hi just got the bmw and not owned one before so bit unsure.
    the remote central locking unlocks and locks both boot and passenger door but not drivers door. but it locks with key as normal. read on internet earlier and someone mentioned about same problem changing the battery i tried that and reset it but didnt stop the problem. can anybody tell me what the problem is and how to solve it?

    In the drivers door. Search the forum for "actuator" or "solenoid"
