3055e28 Central Locking
- 10 Nov 02:08Hi everyone! This is a brilliant group. I've just bought my first
car - a 1983 520i - and it rocks. It seems structurally quite sound,
but there's a few problems I'd like to sort out, not least of which
being that the central locking is horsed. At the minute, to lock the
doors I have to lock the driver's door with the key, then walk round
to the passenger's door and lock that one with the key as well.
So anyway, I'll get to the point. On the driver's door, and the two
rear doors, there's the usual plastic button that you can pull up or
press down to unlock/lock the door, but on the passenger's door
there's just a little plastic disc covering the hole: no kind of
button or switch at all. Is this normal for e28's? How is the
passenger supposed to lock their door from the inside?
While I'm here I suppose I could ask if anyone else has had similar
problems? I've read Jim Cash's excellent posts about the central
locking, and I'm gonna take the doors apart someday soon to look, but
if anyone can give any extra guidance it'd be much appreciated.
Incidentally, when I turn the key in the driver's door I hear a relay
clicking somewhere under the steering wheel (the control unit
Thanks for your help
