    What key fob style you got?

    And have you checked the fuses?

    Also could you remember to add the vehicle details in the thread title next time as per forum rules please, they have been done for you this time. It makes it far easier for people looking up help for their own problems or conversions.

    1. Get in and close all doors
    2. Turn the ignition on & off quickly (no more than 5 seconds) to start the process. Next action must take place within 30 seconds
    3. First key - hold down button #2 (unlock - on the bottom left with the key blade pointing up) while striking button #1 (lock - the BMW logo) three times. Release button #2. This should be confirmed by door lock operation.
    4. If you have more than 1 key then you need to repeat for the other keys within 30 seconds of first or they will be rendered inactive.
    5. After last key then cycle the ignition on/off to finalise the process (it is not necessary to start the engine).

    What happens when you try and lock it on the fob?

    do the locks pop back open?

    You will need to remove the door trim from the drivers side, it sounds slightly like this 1996 E36 318is coupe - Door lock problem(FIXED)
