2008 M SPORT 2.0D E87 REMOTE UNLOCKING ISSUE

Post by tonybbb » Sat Nov 30, 2019 8:32 pm

hi
can anyone help?
none of my remote keys lock/unlock the car, the dash button works all door locking/unlocking perfectly and the doors set on auto lock all work fine,
when lock/unlock pressed on remote fob the device attached to engine just below the air box moves the rod and then returns to same position?
what is this device attached to the engine is it associated with the remote lock/unlock?
thank you

The rod moving sounds like the wastegate actuator doing a self test which has no relation to remote locking.
