BMW 3 SERIES Latches, Locks, Linkages problems : 1.
I Have Intermittent Problems On Hot Days Unlocking My Car Doors. My Key Button Does Not Always Open The Door. I Have To Manually Open The Door. The Real Problem Is When I’m Inside The Car, The Unlock Button Does Not Work, Even When I Manually Pull On The Door Handles From Inside The Car, The Doors Continues To Be Locked. This Creates A Very Dangerous Situation And A Major Safety Hazard For All The Passengers Because The Doors Do Not Open. Once The Car Is Cooler, They Start To Work Again. I’m Afraid That If I Ever Get Into A Car Accident, Nobody Will Be Able To Get Out Of The Car. There Is No bmw Recall For Failed Locks. Please Help.
