I think my locks are OK, but, one thing I'm not sure about. The system locks by pushing down on the passenger side lock in the door, while driving. And I can push that lock down when the door is open. The drivers side can't be pushed down while driving or while the door is open. I think this is normal, but I'm kind of surprised that I can't lock the driver side door when the keys are out of the ignition. 97 328 coupe.

That is just a safety mechanism to prevent against locking one's key inside the vehicle.

Yeah, I checked it out again today and it does let me lock the car while driving on the driver side. I normally use the button anyway. I don't have a remote, so if I'm carrying a bunch of crap its a pain to lock the car with the key. Pushing the door lock down would be much easier.

It helps when you only have 1 key like me.

There's a way to change that. I know because the safety feature thing does not work on my car. I still lock using the key in order to double-lock it, preventing any angry ex-girlfriends [utting sugar in my gas tank.
