  1. Break in optical loop

    I just connected that to the most module in the boot of my e61 and it all worked fine apart from bluetooth was gone and I am unable to use my phone via Bluetooth .. Good luck anyways [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  2. Break in optical loop

    Have you tried one of these attached to the module in the boot floor ? You will lose bluetooth though , but cd radio will work fine . Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122668864708 Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  3. I've been told that sometimes you will start getting random electronic issues if it is not done , I'll be getting it done anyway now ..just in case . I didnt mention in my post that the remote locking started mysteriously working again after the main battery had been disconnected.. before failing again and leaving me locked out [emoji21] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  4. Also the key was tested and is giving out a good signal . I have a tiny feeling that the central locking thing could have something to do with me NOT coding my battery when I installed a new one a while back [emoji21] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  5. I didn't need to show any paperwork , probably because the car was outside my house and the AA guy recommended him /called him Initially Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. My violated door lock [emoji44] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  7. First of all THANKYOU to all of you that posted on this thread. I tried almost everything apart from drilling a hole behind the rear number plate . I was able to get a couple of long lengths of plastic strap through the door frame and hook onto the door handle.. even though I managed to pull on it . It would not open . I called the AA out and they wedged the door open slightly, and used a hand pumped air bag, to open it enough to get a metal rod to try the door handles and also the central locking button on the dash. Still no joy as it now seems like the dead locks had activated [emoji21] Next stop was auto locksmith , and he had to drill the lock out [emoji21].. I am now waiting for a replacement lock to be fitted but at least I can use the car ... what a nightmare!! .. I could of avoided all of this if I had taken action earlier . I hope someone can learn from my mistake and you all now know how hard these cats are to break into ..lol Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  8. Yep if I could, there is a latch on the inside that will open the boot lid once the glass lid is opened Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  9. Does anyone know of a safety feature if a key was left in the boot on the e61 ? Just thinking I could simulate that by holding the key on the out side ? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  10. I am contemplating drilling a hole in the boot lid behind the number plate , I've seen a YouTube video of it done on a 7 series , but ... I would need to work out the exact location of the latch to pull on [emoji848] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  11. Car battery is good , new battery in key fob , its possibly the diversity antenna although it was a new one approx 3 years ago , the radio still works though [emoji848] I had the car washed yesterday and we had heavy rain today , the remote locking/unlocking stopped working for a couple of weeks , then mysteriously started working after the main battery was disconnected /reconnected while a starter motor issue was worked on . It has been fine for about 6 weeks, I drove the car this morning then came home , when I went to pick my son up from school this afternoon , It would not open [emoji848] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  12. Looks like I'll have to try that after I get the bus home after work [emoji34] .. I. Not a happy chap right now Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  13. Not worked [emoji848]. Back to the drawing board [emoji26] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
