    Hi all,

    I have a problem with the remote central locking on my 330ci, I can open the car with the remote central locking but sometimes it won't lock remotely... this problem is quite random as sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt, I then have to manually lock it with the key and for some reason the radio/computer turns its self on in the car?? So my only option is to leave the car unlocked (not a sensible thing to do where i live!).

    I dont have a spare key to test if it is the key at fault, a reliable BMW specialist seem's to think it is but surely the open mode on the key would stop working aswell? Has anyone else come across this problem or can help me in anyway?


    Thanks,

    I would first start by checking the wires that run between the vehicle and bootlid.

    The wires in the rubber sheath are prone to snapping and making contact with others which then causes all sorts of weird electrical issues within the electrical system
