Been running the P38 1999 2.5 DSE for a while now but last week it died. It requested the key code. Carried out as it has happened before but this time it did not work. Tried a few times allowing for the 30 mins or so waiting. Still not result.
Searched on here and tried various methods.
The latch tests were useful nut unfortunately everything was OK.
Tried new batteries in key fob and resynching - no change ( the red light on the fob glows brilliantly!)
Tried the key in position II method - no change.
Checked continuity and condition of all wires in the door, in the boot, under the seat - everything OK
The alarm light on the dash is lit.
All central locking works when you use the internal drivers door sill lock button.
When using the key all doors lock most of the time but usually do not unlock
Plan of attack is ti source a door outstation - (is there a way to test it?
If this fails then look again at the key fob. replace or something????
Then it can only be the BECM????
Any suggestions would be most appreciated as we want to get the old girl running again!
