i always lock and unlock my car from outside the drivers-side door. All the doors lock properly but when i try to unlock them, all but the driver's-side door unlocks. I have to open the rear driver's-side door and manually pull up the driver's-side door pin. Any ideas? Thanks
On my '99 750 it was a fractured support for the door lock solenoid that allowed the solenoid to sag and not actuate the door lock. I had to pull the inner door panel, align the support and weld it (kinda trcky as the metal wanted to melt versus weld, but I got here together and no more problems. Take a llok at Johan and Seans E32 site http;//bmwe32.masscom.net/ and the door lock actuator section.
Mine does the same thing and i just havent had time to fix it yet a couple of more turns in the unlock direction while wiggling it should open it just fine. I will give you the fix shortly when i fix mine
