Open your trunk with your keys, most 1989 and up have battery in trunk, or a lead to jumpstart is in compartment as well

Try to hook up a battery charger to the battery post of the starter to CHARGE the battery enough to open the doors.

I don't know that this will work, but try using the key and opening the door at the same time, both sides, this procedure works for locked doors and a dead battery, hope this helps, let me know.

something in the airbag system is at fault. it could be the airbag(s) itself or any of the sensors that detect a crash to deploy the airbag. i would really take it into BMW and have it checked & repaired. the airbag(s) will not deploy with this light on so your safety is at risk if you are ever in an accident..

simply open the boot & remove the blown bulb & replace with a new one. the bulb is just a half turn holding in there so turn it anticlockwise & it should pop out.
