My Ride: 2003 330 ci
2003 330ci Door lock and mirror issue

Hi There,

1. My driver side door wont unlock when I hit the key unlock bottom, but it would open the passenger door when I hit the key unlock bottom twice, I can only open it by manually insert key into key hole turn to open.
According to this, which parts could be the one failed ?

2. My driver side mirror wont move at all when I hit the mirror switch and can not hear any sound at the time I hit mirror switch but the passenger side are totally fine and work well.
According to this, which parts could be the one failed ?

Thanks for your input

Currently experiencing the same doorlock issue. Its either the actuator within the door, or the GM5 unit that controls all of the doorlocks.

I haven't checked my mirror, but I will have to see if it still works. Somehow doubt they are connected issues for you, though.

Check out this thread for an actuator DIY.
