Hey i did not check what year is your car. but for many of the weird electrical symptons on the e36 they can be traced back to the known trunk lid harness recall problem.
Essentially the problem occurs at the electrical harness inside the rubber insulation between the car body and the trunk lid. After some time a har dplastic sleeving used on tha part of the harness cuts the wires apart. This leads to shorts that can cause light flickering, things not locking etc...
I just fixed my car problem of the doors popping back up after locking by simply pulling the harness out, sliding the sleeving out, then puting the wire back together, i had one wire that was simply cut in half.
So i would check that first. then also proceed to the basic fuse, relay inspection and also ccheck all ground connections, make sure they are tigh and clean.
hope this helps.
