drivers door lock e46 320 sedan

So I just replaced the drivers lock cylinder and it works fine with the key in. The door locks are sync'd. they lock and unlock. However, the drivers side door lock in the lock position allows me to still open it.

So; what could be the issue here?

Key fobs also don't work.

any help would be appreciated. thx.

Are you sure you properly reconnected everything? Or didn't break anything?

I hadn't touched anything inside the door. All I did was replace the lock cylinder because the key was just spinning.

Sounds like you door lock module is faulty. Part #1. I had to replace mine recently. Different failure mode though.

That has been my suspicion. Although the plunger is working something inside it isn't connected to it. So the lock doesn't do anything. I got a handle on one that I can grab later. I just was hoping this wasn't it..lol wanted to avoid the job..haha thanks for your help.
