jumping bean door lock

I am new to the site.... so hello to all ...... Weird thing last night.....I go to lock my door with the key fob and the door locks jump up and down. Since I have already once been locked in the car and had to crawl out the sunroof due to a 15 amp fuse I am kind of nervous about getting back in. Any ideas out there?

upgrading the fuse is a bandaid. the real issue is the actuators failing causing them to draw more current.

I have read on here about an emergency crank to open the sunroof. Is this true first of all? Secondly, if it is true, where is the crank located on an E90?
