i had a problem with my door locks on my 1996 328i but it wasn't keyless entry. i took it to the shop and they fixed it with new actuaters for my door that wouldnt lock with the rest

I would have to agree that its not your keyless entry system thats doing you wrong since thats nothing but electrical wires. Take a look and see if your actuator is bad for the locks on your door. Also another problem is when wires come loose in the door and when you put the window up and down it cuts them so check that out.
