Mein Auto: 328i
locked out with the key and dash lights remain on

Hey everyone. I just joined and im hoping to get some help because this is the strangest thing ive came across on a BMW.
I have a 2000 328i. I went out of town for 3 days and left my car at home. Came back and all the lights on the dash are on and the doors wont unlock with the remote or the key. The only thing that will open is the trunk. I thought the battery was low so charged it up but still no help. Ive unhooked it for 24 hours and hooked it back up and still the lights are on and no door control. Its crazy. any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Did you try to unlock the door by actually turning the key? Sounds like electrical problem to me.

Yeah ive used the key in the door and the trunk. I know BMWs are serious with their locking systems and if the key wont let me in is there any other way to do it? I know I can break the window but that still isnt going to let me in. I would have to climb in and out. Is there any special way to maybe reset the car or the locking system so it will unlock?
