In Reply to: driver door lock will not lock posted by Taylor D on October 17, 2001 at 14:18:35:

I had the same problem in my 89 535i. Step one, put down the driver window, unlock all doors. Step two, get out of the car and close the door. Step three, put key in driver door lock, turn to the right and hold. All 3 doors should now lock. Hold the key to the right until the window starts going up. While still holding the key to the right reach in and push the lock down manually. Step four, quickly pull your and out before the window closes on your arm.

That's it.
