Hi all;
I have a 1998 528i.I have a known ignition switch problem(radio out,vanity
lite slide moves steering column,etc) that I am getting fixed soon. But just
today,I can't get front doors to lock with remote nor lock button between
seats...the rear doors lock,but not the front doors (the lock buttons on the
front doors will not go down unless I manually push them down by hand)
Any ideas/suggestions?
Thanks,
Mark

Sounds like it's related to your electrical problem. I'd eliminate your known problem first before you go hunting for this one. It would make it much easier to eliminate possibilities.

I'm sorry, but...when you say "vanity lite slide moves steering column", do you mean that when you adjust the light on the vanity mirror the steering wheel moves? LOL, I know it sucks, but I find that hilarious

Anyone who ever buys used cars online, anyone even THINKING of starting a &quot;Is this deal too good to be true?&quot; thread, anyone who wants to be more educated about protecting themselves must <a href='http://www.carbuyingtips.com/fraud.htm' target='_blank'>read this</a>.
