    My two front doors will not unlock, Only the drivers side with the key.

    Rear doors will not lock/unlock

    Strange but horn does not work either, all other electrics appear o/k

    This is the second time it has occurred, first time under warranty and garage (Sitner BMW) stated fuse blown. Now a week out of the three year period it happened again horn?

    Changed and swapped all fuses listed on the fuse chart associated with the locking but no effect.

    Help, any one update me on where to look on a current series three? Or fuse number to change apart from as listed on the fuse card.

    Cheers

    Fuse number 57 blows, its listed as a 15 amp fuse. its the 3rd one in from the left on the bottom row of fuses. Bmw now recommend that this fuse is uprated to a 20 amp with no danger of thermal incidents or damage resulting from this increase! This is the point Sytner would of got too, the diagnostic tester would of then asked them operate the central locking 10 times and if the central locking behaves evrytime to return the vehicle to the customer.
    However, should the central locking operate but one of the door locks be slow to respond or be noisey then that dock lock must be replaced. If one of the front door locks is found to be defective then the front door locks should be replaced as a pair, if one rear door lock exhibits a fault then only that one should be replaced.
    If you go back into the dealer, with your car being only just out of warranty and you having already had this fault you should be able to get the problem rectified still at no cost to yourself, good luck
