    hey not sure if you can help but my 1986 BMW 325e has no spark and fuel pump is not working? What could it be and could the crankshaft sensor really stop it from getting spark and wht would that have to do with the fuel pump not engaging?

    Hi

    Dont know whether you can help.

    Overnight, my partner washed my trousers, sadly with the key still in the pocket, the door would not unlock the next day.

    Got a replacement key from BMW. I can get in the boot and under the bonnet, but I think the problem is mechanical, not electrical.

    Conversations with BMW suggested that the car had, for whatever reason, deadlocked itself.

    Looking on the internet, there seems no resolution is available. I talked to a local BMW specialist who had a similar car in his stock - he had taken out the windscreen to gain access to the door handles, but even sitting inside pulling the handles would not open the doors.


    Over the last few weeks, I have had everybody from a local fireman to a (reformed) car thief try and get inside without damaging the car and all have failed. I find it hard to believe that BMW could have designed a lock where, if it failed, the only method of access is by virtually destroying the door.

    Any ideas?
