    I suspect the general module under the rear seat going haywire...at one time, the rear window going up by itself... :stupid:

    You can lock and unlock the car from the boot lock using your key.

    Is there wetness on your carpet?The modules dislike water like the plague.

    moots,
    I didn't know the boot lock can also control the locking/unlocking of the car doors.
    Do you mean that by turning the key in the boot lock, the car doors will lock/unlock ?
    This is useful info. Many thanks.
    Regards

    Yes it is possible to open from the booth if your central locking is in right working order. Same goes to the passenger side key lock. Still works on my E34 & E30. On the other hand, if the battery is weak, and unable to open, power can be fed via license plate light terminals and try to open.
    In Anakin's case, it could be the General module or one of the central locking module at one of the door..

    UpdATE....V-Man was right....central lock module at driver side kaput!...changed and its back into action now... :) and just a general reminder, for those who's driving M20 and early M50 that using 12v system..you may find it hard to find a donor door if it need to replace...its no longer available at chop shop..24v berlambak!
