Has anyone been inside the door panel recently? If so it is possible they did not plug the actuator connector back up. using a pencil, try to engage the latch and lock it. Does it lock? Does it release when you pull the inside or outside handle? The latches can internally fail without notice. It is possible the actuator is frozen. If it is it will need to be replaced.

Why cant i open my driver side door on my 2002 bmw 745i ?


If your exterior handle lifts up in a rocking motion, it could be the small rod and clip arrangement has become disconnected from the main lock actuator mechanism. This was a bear on my M3 to fix due to the limited working space near the handle. If you're comfortable with removal of the inner door panel, vapor barrier material and latching mechanism to attempt to fix be careful and good luck. Otherwise I'd suggest taking to a qualified body shop for assistance.

Passenger door open


BMWs have solenoid actuated door locks (electric box that sits on top of the door latch - some years integrated into latch) that electrically "deadbolt" the locks. The door panel will have to be removed with door locked/closed (may result in damage to panel), electrical mechanism removed from latch, and latch manually unlocked. It's a very effective theft deterrent system, but when it fails, it can be a severe pain. The failure is quite common; they should almost be a regular service/replacement item on BMWs.

Hope this helps,

I have a 1994 BMW 325i and both of my rear doors won't close.. The latches just move freely. Any sujestions?


I didn't see the other posts but did you try to hold the door handle as to open the door and move the latch up so to open all the way. I have seen kids play and push the latch when the door is open and it latches it closed when the door is open and then the door won't latch because it's not on the bar to reset it in the right position, may want to try that.

Door latch will not engage. Used WD40, and lubricating grease but still will not engage when trying to close the door


Sounds like someone might have engaged the latch with the door open.....that is....when you look into the latch (in the door) you might find that it is in a closed position ( the "claw like") metal part is down...as if it were closed and engaged on the receiver in the door jam. Take a screw driver...and while lifting up on the door handle, push the latch back up into the door. You should feel it catch in the up position.

I have a 1998 BMW 528 I. The drivers side door latch will not catch. So door will not close or lock


Wit the door open, using a srewdriver, use it to throw the catch, then see if the latch locks into position. if it doesn't then a new catch will be required as the locking latch spring inside the latch would have broken
