Remote key & AutoDoor opens/closes driver side, not other doors.
Everything a few weeks ago worked.
Now when I try to unlock the doors I only open the driver's side. Likewise when I use the automatic door unlock from inside (driver's or passengers side) it only opens/locks the drivers side, not the passenger or rear doors. (4 door hatch, Hatch still works though..)
I think it's a fuse? but I'm a computer guy, not a mechanic. And I can't find the fuse.

Do you keep the key in your pocket quite a bit? Most BMW's need the key to be recharged in the ignition console for a few hours every week or so. The battery will die if you don't charge it for about an hour or two once a week.
That sounds like what happened to my neighbor.They came to the conclusion that someone tried to jam a screwdriver in the lock to open the door.As far as not openeing anymore,that happened to me and I had to replace the mechanism inside the door.I bought a used one for $5 and did it myself.A regular mechanic should be able to fix it however,you may end up needing to have 2 separate keys for your car if they replace the lock.1 for the ignition and other locks,and 1 for the drivers side lock.Call around a few places for a few estimates.Tell them the same as what you posted,they should be able to give a close estimate over the phone.Also,please read my tip about car keys.It is good free info.Good luck!

the body controller is at fault it may need the software update from the dealer... one thing you can do is disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes then when you reconnect it... the fob will work again...
