locked in car lol uugh

First of all hello, I'm new to this site. My girlfriend and I just purchased a 1995 530i. Problem is my girlfriend got locked in the car today. I know this is funny to everyone but her. Long story short the stealership told me to break out the window, because the battery was too low to unlock car. TWO Hours later the locksmith was able to wedge the door open and get the key from her. In turn the key in the outside lock unlocked all doors and she was able to exit. Also the car then started fine. Did I happen to mention it was 0 degrees out today? Also car would not start, pulling on locks and door handle got us nowhere, not even the sun roof would work. We got the car with just one key and no remote. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advanced

You need to have a key outside the car to unlock the doors. I would recommend you get a second key made.

Good to know your gf is fine.

Thank you. The locksmith actually made us two for the entertainment value.(three locksmiths by the time the ordeal was over) I have always had GM'S and can fix just about anything from wiring to rebuilding an engine, but this a new creature to me.

YEah, once double-locked, you can't pull the locks up from inside teh car. I find it really weird that she couldn't start the car, though

Yeah radio played dash lights were on but it would not turn over. I will have to look and see if it has an alarm or keyless entry. The guy we purchased the car from said that he lost the remote, but didn't say much else except that he was very sorry.

The fact that the car wouldn't start like that seems like a hint of a security ignition kill that was on until the car was opened...

Any idea if this could be a factory installed security?
I did notice a red led on rear of center console, but never noticed it lit.

I would think that's security, but if it's factory, who knows.

Does anyone know if this can be disarmed from inside car?
I mean what would have happened if her phone was dead?
It seems a little rediculous to me, or maybe I'm just not used to it. lol

Check your fusible link. It's in the little black box leading off on the positive lead from the battery; it's basically a big metal fuse -- it cracks with time and causes the electronics to do flaky stuff like that. Pull it out; if it shatters, that's your problem ...

btw, My dad got locked in my 90 525i one day a few years back .... on a 100 degree day, in a black car. Luckily he had a key and could start the car and turn the air on. Otherwise I would have had to break the window; very easy to suffocate in such conditions.

Wow that is insane. So when it double locks you cant just pull the door handle and have the doors unlock? I swear my e36 used to do that...

When it's double locked, you can't do crap. Pulling the door handle does nothing, pulling up on the door pin does nothing ... you can pull until you break it. Even pulling up the door handle as you unlock (which is the emergency unlock procedure for dead battery) doesn't work if it's double locked. You are literally screwed if it double locks and something goes wrong.
