Mein Auto: 325ci
Need help! 2004 325Ci Convertible, Trunk and Glove Compartment are locked

First the top would not close automatically. I was able to have a friend close it manually. Now the convertible is locked (light blinking) and my glove compartment and trunk are also locked. I can open the trunk manually but the glove box will not open at all. Any advice??

You just have to play with it with a little force. Put the key in all the way and turn it left hard and try to open. Go all the way right, then back, trying a different pressure, etc. Once you finally get it open make sure the screws on the inside are tight. If it's a little loose, it can mess it up.
