: 2 days after getting my M3 my central locking has decided to stop working.I came out yesterday morning and activated the alarm which then activates the central locking but when when I pressed the fob the alarm deactivated but the central locking stayed closed,it was a freezing morning,-9,so I'm wandering if the locks had been frozen when they were supplied with juice they could have blown a fuse or relay or someting!.Even opening it manualy failed to open the rest of car.Any suggestions guys!

Big guess here, but I'm betting on the wire harness on the driver's door. Try wiggling that rubber shield protecting the wires between the body and the door and see if you can make the wires make contact. See if the central locking comes back. If so you need to unclip the harness at that point and do a little repair work.
