Door lock issue

I have a 1992 325i with issues. I pulled all the fuses today to check everything before the wife took it away for a trip. When I pulled the door lock fuse, all four doors locked and now I can't get in the car. Nothing works, keys, lock knob pull, door handle pull. I'm guessing the anti-theft kicked in and shut everything down. How can I get in the car and what do I have to do to fix this situation so it doesn't happen again? Thanks for any help offered.
History: Bought the car with door lock issues. Use the key to lock/unlock all from the truck. Recently when shutting the driver door, the doors will all lock occasionally when the door slams shut. Thanks again.
