E39 530D 2003
Lock doors with remote. OK- Press unlock, rear drivers side still locked.
Out side door handle locked
Inside door handle unlocks and button pops up.
Press lock on remote & all doors lock.

Ok you experts & Sherlock Holmes what next. ???

Kind regards Cliff

Solenoid stuck or knackered - not cheap so worth taking out and testing. May just be stuck as it works 'one way'.

Definitely solenoid or maybe broken wire/duff connector, check wiring and clean pins on connectors
