hey guys, my car(92 325i) has no alarm, so when i lock the doors manually( push them down) they pop back up! then i push em down 2nd time, they stay locked, same goes for when i lock from the outside, unlocking no prob, locking is wierd, any info would be much appreciated...
i would suspect one of your front-door (master) lock actuators. you may have to open your front door trims and check on the linkage of the actuator to the car locks. it may be loose. it should be set in a way that when it is locked the actuator's link goes all the way inside (or the reverse). if the link stops halfway, it bounces back open.
i dont know if i am making enough sense,,,, ill try to get some illustrations.
