the remote unlock the door, but the door can't be opened. is there any electrical part of the door not working? need help...thank you.
One possibility is that the door lock solenoid support bracket is broken (happened on my 1988 750) or that the solenoid is out of alignment (the solenoid is held by two screws that go through slotted holes and the solenoid can be moved fore or aft to allow the proper door unlocking ).
Second possibility is that the Bowden (braided steel) cable that allows the door handle to activate the lock is broken (happened to my car and it was a interior handle cable, yes there are two cables, one for inside handle and one for outside) Once the door is unlocked can you open the door from the inside? If yes then I would suspect the bowden cable is kaput.
