    So earlier they were fine, but now they won't unlock no matter what.

    Im guessing actuators, but it seams so weird they would work when i parked, then did not when i came back...

    any one have any guess? (or temporary fix or something since i gotta take my brother to class tomorrow)?

    Temp fix? There is nothing you can't fix with a sledgehammer. :p

    If they are electric it could be a weak motor.

    only thing u can really do is disassemble the door panel and check to see if u got any visible failures. then run a volt meter to see if all yur modules and electronics are workin properly. if it's deeper than that then u might just have to take it to someone.

    Ok, so...

    I took the door apart, and found nothing visually amiss

    So, i had my dad come over (he is good with 1987 BMWs and thats it xD) and he was futsing around with the actuator and oiled it and such, and that diddnt fix it. So i was like forget it, took it to a local shop, and the guy said he was 90% i was right with actuator being bad. So i scheduled service tomorrow. So me and a friend were out and about, and he slammed my door (i was able to get it open by pulling the lock and opening the handle with a decent amnt of pressure) and he slammed the door shut on accident. When we came back, it worked :D


    So im guessing something is still wrong, but i atleast have time to deal with it tho...



    I feel really bad though for the shop, because iv never been there, and since i had the door taken apart the guy looked at it for free, and now i just called and canceled :( o well xD i'll prob be back!
