Question about Cars & Trucks
The truck wont start and the flashers flash and all the lights will flash and the door locks will lock and unlock on there own when the key is in the ignition. the truck will not start, Im not sure if its the computer going bad or could it be the security system going bad?
When you turn key on does it click repeatedly? When an alternator is going bad the electrical goes all kinds of crazy sometimes, you may want to start there if you havent chkd that yet.

SOURCE: Door locks dont work
2 things I would try before replacing an expensive BCM. Disconnect your battery for 5 minutes or so, then reconnect, and see if that helped at all. I have heard in some cases it worked successfully. If that doesn't cure it, I would go to the plug on the BCM itself, (with battery disconnected) and pull the plug off, inspect it, and clean it & mating pins on BCM very thoroughly with contact cleaner or similar electrical cleaner. Add a little di-electric grease to connection & put it back together nice & tight & see what happens. The BCM is usually located on passenger side in kick panel area,(by right foot when sitting) either behind kick panel or above it.

There are several suggestions out there on how to retrieve BMW keys from the trunk. Many of the ways I tried failed, and it takes 2 to 3 days to get a new key made up. In the coupe there is the center piece in the back seat that folds down. Then on the back wall there is material that will fold down that is held up with Velcro. Behind that you will find a rubber insulation that is mostly cut and looks like a door, but not all the way. Carefully cut the rubber to remove the piece. Now you will find a metal wall, but there is a large piece that is tack welded on. I got turned around and kicked it with the bottom of my foot and got 3 sides loose. Then a softball bat knocked the final side loose. Pull that out and trash it, the final barrier is the insulation that is held in place with plastic clips that can just be pushed down. After that you can a pretty large hole to work through and get the keys. Just put everything back in place other than the metal plate and you will never know anything was done.

Sounds like the link rod to the latch are jammed in the locked position by something inside the door or it came off. Any way, you have to remove the door panel to get access to it.

by process of elimination!
one door at a time so disconnect 3 & keep changing the active one till you find which one isnt working
then test its circuits ok
