Hello, I'm new to this site and hope I can get some useful info on my 1989 525i. First problem. The driver door lock does not lock and the button cannot be moved manually or with key. Key locks and unlocks all other doors. Could it be the acutator or possibly another part broken inside door? Should I try resetting doors first? If so, what is the proper way to do this?
Switched AC from R12 to R134a. Shortly after a puff of white smoke/steam stuff came out of the vents. The fan only works on the #4 setting and I started having trouble with the dash lights, gas gauge, odometer and temp. gauge not working. Unhooked battery and let it reset itself, seems to have worked for the gauges so far but what could have caused the white puff?
And if that wasnt enough, I'm in process of fixing the seat twist problem. Was almost done when my husband broke the seat switch and then tried to yank the gear box out and pulled the cable loose. Does anyone know how much of the metal thing is supposed to be sticking out from the cable normally? Ok I'm done now.....lol..hope someone has some ideas for me. Thank you
