The doors will not unlock with the remote key. The driver's door will unlock with the key inserted, but once inside the car, the passenger doors will still not unlock with the inside button or by pulling the unlock lever on each door. The levers do not work by pulling twice either. Very dangerous!!! I've had passengers who had to climb in and out over the console and into the back seats.

BMW 2001 330I sedan (4 doors). Door locks are unresponsive during hot days. I live in orlando Florida and this means almost all the year is hot. This is a critical problem because for safety reasons you will get locked in your car. I am imagine if you have a car accident and you are not able to open the doors to leave the car? online (www.bmwgm5.com/) you can fine how BMW customers are dealing with the same problem. The guy on that website has a fix for that issue. I have seen this problem more than 50 times in 2 years. BMW should do a recall for this issue.
