Another problem is i cant even get the doors to open even if i pull the handles twice, nothing happens!
I suspect it could be the central lock control unit that could be faulty. one other thing to consider; if you repeatedly try to lock and unlock the system freezes to avoid overheating the lock actuators and control unit. safety feature. If you give a moment it should work again. I don't believe this is a wiring issue.

I think I've had 18 bmw's in 6 years.
