central locking/alarm

Hey another problem is have is when i put my alarm on it does not lock the drivers door but locks every other...... Its the same thing as when i unlock it via my alarm remote key fob....

I have a sigma T2 bmw alarm if it helps.. I just find it annoying that it locks/unlocks every door apart from the drivers side.

Is this normal or is something wrong?

Cheers.

Sounds like you have just an issue with a defective driver's door lock actuator........

Yes you will need to keep your barrel, the actuator is not a bad job to do just a bit fiddly, I had to do one on my rear door, I took the actuator apart re greased it with silicone grease, no trouble since....
