Hello, The problem is your door lock actuator is bad. The reason you can not open the door any other way is your door is in double lock. In double lock the door can only be unlocked electrically, there is no mechanical linkage when latch is in double lock. This problem will require a BMW specialist to get the door open, so the lock actuator can be replaced. Good luck

Hi, I am sorry I didn't know you were a mechanic. There are two things I do: one is a keep playing with the remote while tapping on the door. Sometimes I get lucky and the actuator decides to work one more time (this saves alot of work, sometimes it works). The other way is you remove as much of the top door panel or weather stripping as you can, take a long screw driver and break the latch to get the door open (yes it is a real pain). The reason I suggest to car owners to bring it to a BMW specialist is to minimize the damage. There is no easy way to do it. and with the actuator bad you can't open it with the Scan tool anyway. Good luck
