2007 4-dr 3 series - doors will not unlock - HELP

Hi, first post and a bit of an emergnecy so forgive me for not searching through the entire forum.

My GF's 3-series (2007 4-door 328i) suddenly became unresponsive in the sense that both key fobs no longer work at all. The driver door opens with the key blade from inside the fob. None of the other doors open, even from the inside. The lock/unlock button on the dash does nothing and the filler cap will no longer open and the car is on fumes.

In other words: HELP !

I hope there is a manual way to override at least the filler cap lock.

Thanks

Figured out the gas filler cap issue (green pull chord in the trunk).

Now how do I get these doors to open? I can't believe there is no manual override from the inside. That turns the car into a death trap...

The double lock feature is to prevent someone smashing your window and unlocking the door. Yes, some people report its a safety issue, but if i really need to get out of the car in a hurry, ill smash the window.

As for the central locking issue, check ALL of your fuses. They may look okay but they may not all be. Some fuses may tie into the central locking feature even though its not listed. I think it may be the module itself. If it was a door actuator the rest of the doors would open and the one with the actuator out would not.

Its a fairly common problem as of late. My vehicle has experienced this too.

THank you.

Google searches indicate fuse #57

Can anyone confirm?

Is there a fuse diagram anywhere I can look at?

You can unlock a door from inside by pulling TWICE on the lever.
One of the fuse-box covers has all the associations printed on it.

I have 2007 328i Sedan with 107,000 miles. When I attempt to open the doors with the remote all doors(passenger and both rear) unlock but the driver's door does not unlock. When I press the remote the black door lock indicator on the door flutters 4 times quickly and remains down instead of up. It's not all the way down in the hole like the other three doors. When i'm in the car and push the unlock button on the dash the same thing happens. The only work that I have had done was at a BMW dealer/service shop. They replaced my battery last week October 15th and this problem started on October 21st(today).
