    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I tried the search function on this but couldn't find the exact issue so here goes. The fob doesn't work on the one key I have but I'm not fussed about remote locking. What does concern me is that when I lock the car with the key, all doors lock with no problem but the drivers door doesn't. The...
