1999 E46 323i - BMW Specialists HELP needed! --
Just wondering if anyone knows about door lock cylinders.
My door lock cylinder broke the other day, my key moves around freely with no resistance, goes to the left half way, goes to the right a quarter spin.
I did end up opening the door with a metal rod cause my window was open about an inch, pulled the latch with the rod, got in.
The alarm went off, had to disarm it with my barely working key fob. Now the car wont start at all, no clicks, no turning over at all.
My question is, if you break the door lock cylinder, if it does break during the lock phase or the unlock phase of the turn, is there a sensor, or will the computer say that door is still locked preventing from starting the car?...
Please let me know if you have been through this, or if you have knowledge in this area. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
