    I have a BMW 535d M Sport Touring 2005. The central locking will only operate with the key manually turned in the lock but not with either remote control. There are no faults showing on the system diagnostics(no blown fuses either). The car has just spent two hours in a BMW dealership workshop where they replaced the antenna amplifier unit under the rear spoiler. This did not correct the fault. Both remotes are transmitting and being detected, but not activating the system. The BMW garage are flummoxed. Their next idea is to swap out progressively various control units and sensors along the bus system to try to identify where the problem lies. This will be an open ended cost to me in terms of time spent. They have already charged me for an hour's work for the first stage of diagnosis. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks, Malcolm
