Mr E23 NZ is an unknown quantity at this point

To start with, this is for a 1984 E23 735

The problem

The central locking was always sporadic, sometimes it would work, sometimes it didnt, no real pattern,

then one day, 3 doors (all cept drivers door) Just wouldnt open, I've tried a few things (including pulling the locks really really hard), but still no opening doors

it would seem is that it is the deadbolt system which is the problem, as when I unlock the car, I can unlock it, then click it one further for the deadbolt action, but when I unlock it, I can't take it that extra click...


If anyone could let me know how to over ride the deadbolt system, or has any other ideas it would be appreciated

Thx

You can try resynchronizing all locks by locking drivers door with key and then going to front passenger door and trying to open her by turning key past the 90 degree point while lifting up the door handle.
