BMW E60 530D M sport 2006 - Remote key fob will unlock and

Customer Question

BMW E60 530D M sport 2006 - Remote key fob will unlock and open the boot but will not lock the car - tried the spare key and exactly the same will unlock and open the boot but will not lock the car, so obviously not a fault with the key fobs. I can lock the car with the manual key no problems - any ideas would be much appreciated - best regards ***** *****

If you use the lock button below the hazzard warning light button inside the car the doors lock correctly....

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

this is not a common failure mode for this system

I would suggest that you check all fuses just in case, and also unhook the vehicle battery for an hour to reset all systems

if the issue persists, then I would suspect that the problem is an internal control module failure or software fault.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
