keyless entry going in and out

sometimes it works just fine sometimes i want to break the key in half

i can hear it trying to unlock the doors with failure (distinct clicking noise when pressed) also the trunk ALWAYS works no matter what (kind of strange)

i heard most likely its the gm5 but to make sure i want to hear for others not gonna drop $85 or whatever it is without a little research

also the car doesn't have an alarm if that makes a difference but i am in the market for a kit if anyone knows a good deal i definitely want oem style tho.

thanks in advance

I had issues with my locks, or should I say my wife did. The symptoms fit the GMV module failure. I sent it in and it has been working great ever since, cost me just over $100 with shipping and such. Fast turn around, even though a friend reinstalled it while I was on vacation. http://bmwgm5.com/
