    I need the help of well informed BMW owners before I go mad!! Ive had this wonderful car for a year and recently the central locking has gone mad. The fault is intermittent. That is whats annoying. Sometimes the remote fob will open/lock the whole car, sometimes theres nothing. When this happens using the remote key in the drivers door sometimes opens everything and sometimes only opens the drivers door. This is where its worrying....when only the drivers door is open i cannot open any doors for my passengers, annoying when youre out with the wife and kids!! Thakfully i can use the key in the boot lock toopen the petrol cap from inside. Ive tried the suggested turn the key to pos 2 and then press the relevent buttons to reset
    . Sometimes it works other times nothing.

    I'd love to know what it is as when it went to my local garage he diagnostic tested said it was ok and then had the lock on a 'good day' when it behaved and worked.

    Sounds like it could be a General Module fault, see here, http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...ervice-t16743/
