    yes thats the exact problem i am getting. you can hear the locks trying to come up but they can't. maybe the deadlocks are not getting the signal or something.

    can you still open the boot using your remote?
    if you hold the unlock button for a few seconds it should also start rolling your windows down. if you can do all this then your remote is deffinatly programmed to the car. also hold the lock button to shut the windows back up.

    Hi Guys,
    It's all happening to me too! Just bought 323ci and passenger door won't open now. Keys fine just won't unlock doors. Key open drivers door but passenger door remains locked. I've also been advised it'll be the general control module. Getting it booked in next week, let you know if t's a fix
    Good luck!

    Is it only the passenger door that doesn't unlock when you press the remote?

    Sorry Ronnie, did that make any sense? Was out last night sorry!
    The key remote operates everything apart from operate the cental locking to open. So I use the key to get in the drivers door but the passenger door remains locked.

    Cheers Ronnie,
    It is annoying, only had the car a couple of days. Love it to bits but it does take the shine off it somewhat. Rang the seller (private) and they said it has been an intermittent fault.
    Thanks again

    HI Ricky

    Just to clarify this, your driver door opens on the key, but the central locking doesnt work eg/ drivers door and passenger doors dont open when you manually unlock the drivers door?
    right ??!!!

    Does the key open the passenger side and the same thing happens? eg/ none of the other locks open>?

    Hi, Yes that's right sorry I didn't make it clear. The remote on the key will work everything apart from open the doors remotely. The key will unlock the door manually but with it being a coupe has no keyhole on the passenger side.
    Therefore I can unlock the drivers door, but the passenger door remains locked (inside handle won't open it either!). I know the unlock button on the key works because when pressed all intenal lights come on in the car.
    Thanks everyone for your help, hoping to get it booked in this week so I'll let you know how it goes

    Ricky good job mate keep us updated on that. You are having the same problems as me unfortunately. What I have also noticed is that when I hit the open button the lights inside the car come on but the indicators don't flash for some weird reason! Have you discovered this also?

    yes thats the exact problem i am getting. you can hear the locks trying to come up but they can't. maybe the deadlocks are not getting the signal or something.

    can you still open the boot using your remote?
    if you hold the unlock button for a few seconds it should also start rolling your windows down. if you can do all this then your remote is deffinatly programmed to the car. also hold the lock button to shut the windows back up.
    neil, yeah I can still open the boot and all that - you are also in the same boat too
