You would need to decide what is wrong with the door in the first place - mechanical or electrical fault.
Could need new central lock module, fuel door button, fuel door motor, door could be siezed/jammed, etc, etc.....

hey solo, 06-07 door lock actuators can blow a fuse in the glove box. bmw does have a specific bulletin that addresses this issue and requires replacing the fuse if blown and measure the resistance of all the door lock actuators to determine which is bad. the doors should be able to be opened with the key mechanically. if not for some reason, you should be able to comfort open the windows and will have to crawl inside the car. the fuse panel is inside the glove box and not fun to get to. I believe the fuse is a 10 or 15 amp fuse maybe 5th from the bottem right.

You'll have to remove the trim on the inside of the car right behind the fuel tank in order to release it manually.
If you're lucky, the cable may have separated either at the fuel door, or at the lever and you may be able to run a new cable by threading it through the old one. Otherwise, you'll have to remove all the trim to trace the cable. You may also be lucky and that the cable runs under the bottom of your car

I suggest you to check fuse # 57 15Amp at juction box, you can access it from glove box. if the fuse is blown, replace it with 20A and try to operates lock/unlock 10X and replce door lock fails to responce during the operation. dont operate lock/unlock 15X the system will stop and you have to wait for few min to function it again.
