I'm going to assume that the other doors unlock just fine. There are motor assemblies with accuator rods that work the locking mechanism inside the door when the switch or remote is used. Not the manual lock button itself specific to that door. That probably works fine. Sometimes these actuator rods become unhooked or the motors themselves fail. This sounds like a faulty motor assembly. you must hit unlock twice to unlock all the vehicle doors and your vehicle has driver comfort controls your seat positions radio goes to the channel you have preselcted and the side mirrors adjust for you heres were you get the grinding noise as you press unlock on your remote look at the passenger side mirror it will be going threw a spasm over there lol not sure why maybe the motor or rods as previously stated my solution replace the whole mirror.
This is called "selective central unlocking" and is programmed under "Key Memory Options" by your BMW dealer.
This is the 1st indicator that the POWER LOCK Motor is about top go out. If it is grinding on open & close then more than likely the teeth are grinding down on the gears. Replacing A.S.A.P. will eliminate the possibility of the Driver being locked out by remote and reling on the key to unlock for entry.
Typically, when you turn the key once in the driver's door, it unlocks the driver's door. If you turn the key twice, it unlocks all the doors.
it is burning rubber
The procedure for a 2001 Avalon is quite complex. Details are posted at http://bytemaster.net/avalon . The same procedure might work for a 2000 model.
Do this by using your key in the driver's door lock. While alarm is tooting your horn, simply proceed as if you were unlocking/locking your door. Do this by using your key in the driver's door lock. While alarm is tooting your horn, simply proceed as if you were unlocking/locking your door.
buy new brake pads
By pushing the switch on the driver's side door panel that locks and unlocks the windows.
Try unlocking either the driver's door or the liftgate with the key.
Are the keys in the ignition? If so all you have to do is take them out when you open the door.
possibly brake pads worn down
Mine unlocks from the driver side electric lock. I just turn the key to unlock all doors and it does the trick.
You put in a 5 digit code and it unlocks the driver's door. You can program your own code if you know the original code.
try unlocking it from the driver side...the chip in the key should keep the alarm from sounding...it works for my sportage...
The fuel pump coming on. Most cars prime the pump when you turn the key on, but VW does it when you open the door.
I don't want to sound simplistic, but you need to press the unlock button TWICE in quick succession. Just pressing it once unlocks the driver's door, the second press unlocks the other doors. Hope that helps...
The factory alarm is reset with the keyless remote or by unlocking the driver side door with the key. If you have an aftermarket alarm, the reset could be anywhere, but is usually under the dash on the driver side.
brake the window
You may have a wheel bearing going bad or a brake dragging. Take it to a mechanic. I have found that if I can't identify something better than a "grinding noise" I had better let a mechanic look at it.
Yes- remove wheel to inspect
wheel bearing or it could be the carrier bearing as was in my case
sounds like you need new brakes
Follow in order: -remove key from steering column -close all doors -open driver door -insert key in steering lock -repeat the following 3 times in 24 secs: -turn key to on then back to lock -push driver side door switch 3 times -check that door lock and unlocks-if not wait 40 secs -if lock and unlock-push any button twice -check that door locks and unlocks-if not push driver side door switch -if lock and unlock-push any button twice -check that door locks and unlocks-if not push driver side door switch -if lock and unlock-push any button twice -check that door locks and unlocks-if not push driver switch -if lock and unlock-the end. -remote should work after this.
It could be an axel bearing but noises have to be heard to be correctly diagnoised.
