    What exactly is the fault? Have you looked at the bootlid wiring and tried reporgramming the fobs as per the guide?

    well according to the guide and bmw my alarm fob is also for the central locking, ie when i arm the alarm my central locking should lock and when i de-arm it the central locking should unlock, ive since discovered the when i do this only the boot locks and unlocks, do you think this is a simple case of reprogramming as per the guide or somthing slightly deeper

    your help on this is appreciated

    When you use the key in the passenger side door does the CL work correctly on all doors and the boot? Is this a new problem? Is there anything else electrical not working?

    Sound like the connection from the alarm module to the door unlock circuit has failed. Find the module as per the guide and trace all the wires to make sure they are still connected.
