White lithium grease in a spray bottle from crap tire.
You will never have a problem again with a proper application.

there is a module in all e30's and e36's that when you put your key in the cylinder it heats up and allows you to unlock and lock your doors freely.
If your doors are freezing up your module is all $$$$ed up. it's pretty pricey to fix but worth it as you can cause more damage to your cylinders which will cost more money to fix. about $550.00CND to be exact. each unit

I don't think you use the key, I think you pull up on the door handle while locked. Anyone else?

I'm interested in this heated locks feature.. sounds sweet - but i doubt mine works. That'd be awefully nice.

How hard of a job is it to remove the door panels? That makes the most sense to me.. attack the sumbitch with lithium grease.

Yes, the heated lock are activated after 5 seconds of holding the driver's door handle up. It will automatically turn off after 30 seconds, and you may have to repeat.

White grease is too thick to reach the components of your locking mechanism that will freeze up, what you need is F temperature oil sprayed in a few times, then work the locking mechanism to lube it up. The latching mechanism, however, you should use white grease for.

The question though, is, why are your locks always freezing? Was your door panel removed at one time, and someone removed the vapor barrier, didn't reinstall it properly, or put a hole in it?

There is a little metal cover that goes over your locks, it is spring loaded. Is it not covering fully on your driver's door, which allows water and moisture to get in?

Have you tried blowing out / drying all the water in there with a can of compressed air?

Instead of focusing on how to band-aid the problem and live with it, you should focus on why the problem exists, and how to solve it.
