hi there. fitted new right door card.

now, when i click the central locking, the locks go down then jump back up to unlocked, then i have to click again to disable the alarm then click again and then they lock.

the right door locker catch seems a bit stiff when i pull it up and down. could that be the issue?

i bent the wire a bit towards the road because the door cards were hanging off and the wire was used to operating with this door card this way. maybe i didn't bend it enough.

what do you think guys?

many thank yous.

xpress :)

Make sure the locking rod can move freely.
Also check the boot wiring where it bends and goes into the boot lid. You might have disturbed some brittle wiring. I had the same locking fault when i got the car and 3 wires into the boot had broken. :thumbsup

ah that might be it! this problem happened before i moved the loom for the boot and when i took it out it seems fine, so i think i might see if i can get that locking rod to move a bit better, it's definitely too stiff! thanks for the nod mate. :)

no weirdness about it......

the locks work on a vacum controled system. this is a common issue- , best thing is to open door card check everything looks ok then lubricate -

if all this fails it could be the vacum lock actuater

gd luck

Are you sure you are on the correct forum here? This is BMW, not Mercedes...:rofl. All actuators are electronic...no vacumn pumps behind door cards. Unless you know something I don't :shifty:

Weirdness?? you aint kidding dude!

My Uncle Jamal got himself locked up last week and I aint got no bloody stash left, SHIT!!

I was just thinking: "where the hell am I gonna score some more??" - Don't normally go anywhere else, Uncle Jamal's is the shit!

Then.....this is the weird bit man, kinda almost like it was meant to be:

Logged on here, saw Awais's post and thought "Hell Yeah!!, I'll have some of what eva that dude's been having" must be some good shit, hey Awais?!

I see you're in North London, you deliver at all dude?

on a serious note, this is starting to do my nut in. this only started happening after i changed door cards, even with the door card off it's doing it and when i am not obstructing the flow of the locking rod(ney). :p

it seems to be happening on many others cars too. i did the bootlid after the doorcard started playing up and the loom seems to be fine.

this is so doing my nuts in tho.

when i opened the door card, there's a cable not attached next to the other two, it's a yellow connector, what is this for? did it pop out?

love you all long time.

:S

If its definatly not the loom, it could be a solonoid in the door mechanism thats gone faulty. Spray loads of wd40 into the latch where it catches the striker. These are known to stick sometimes.
I cant see it would be anything on the trim card because there are only 2 wires, the connectors on the door card are for the tweeter and the door mirror. I had mine off last week and cant see it would be anything else. :thumbsup
