I left my BMW in the sun all day and now my locks wont work. Many resources link this problem to the GM5 which controls the lighting and locks. Bad locks can be a safety and security issue on parked cars but also for moving cars as children may open vehicle doors in traffic.

My BMW Z4 which is still under warranty has defective headlights and the dealer refuses to repair them. BMW used an inferior type of plastic which is clouding over and preventing the headlights from working correctly. Please recall these vehicles so that BMW will repair the lights and make it safe to drive at night again.
