    Not sure where this one will fit in.
    My wife has a BMW 320 soft top, with the mechanical top not the material one. Now the remote will open the top, but will not close it. you have to put your key into the door lock to operate it to close, if outside of the car. I'm an electrical engineer and if the door lock sends a signal to the control box, surely the lock option on the remote would do the same? is it a case of flicking a dip switch?
    Hope you guys can help

    Not sure what you can do. The auto close was a function of the 'Comfort Access' option.

    yes thats it, i can remember the sales rep saying about comfort access. Seems a bit silly that I can operate it from putting the small key in the lock, but not via the remote. was it an option from new?

    Mine had it as an option from new. It was a feature of the 'keyless entry'.

    with this model there is no key as such, but you have to put the fob into the dash slot.
    strange as you can open the hood remotely, but not close it.
