firstly I have searched around but cannot seem to find anybody else with a similar issue to my own. I also seen Koola's post recently about being locked out, but my problem is I cannot lock the car.
Car is a 2000 E46, convertible, 330ci (UK). I have owned for about a year, remote key FOB has never worked (and I only have one key) I have always used the key in the door which has worked fine up until yesterday.
When I locked the car yesterday, my key seemed to become stuck in the lock, and I had to fiddle for about 30 seconds before it came out.
This morning, my key would not unlock the car, but fiddling allowed all the windows to lower and I was able to open the door by the internal door latch.
The doors will still lock and unlock with the centre console button when I am in the car.
The problem I have is that I can no longer lock the car with the Key FOB or the key in the door.
My Key still works in the boot.
I have tried to reset the key fob with the methods posted but it seems like the battery might be dead as I get no respose.
I have read it might be the actuator in the door - but is this the answer?
I need some advice. I have not yet been to the stealers, and would like to know if there are any other tests I can do to diagnose the problem.
This is probaly the ideal time to get the key FOB working again.
