Question about 2007 BMW 525xi Sedan
Turn key in the door nothing happens any way to open doors by shorting out central locking or without causing damage
There is a procedure to open the doors in a lock out. You must pull up on the driver's door handle then insert the key and turn it counterclockwise while at the same time pulling the key as if you were trying to pull it out. You will be met with a lot of resistance but the lock will open provided your actuator is not froze. This is a tricky procedure and will no doubt take several practices to be able to pull it off. Good luck!

The only real way to do it safe with minimal damage is to disconect the central locking mechanism located inside the trunk lid.but you have to get the trunk lid open than everything will be manual.

Emergency entry on the E34 chassis 5-series is to insert key in the passenger door, turn key to full unlock position and pull up on the door handle. This should get the door open, even if the battery is dead.

SOURCE: Central Locking not working
I'm running a E34 Tds Touring with a similar problem, my rear doors and tailgate have dropped of the central locking circuit.
I have been told it is the Central locking Module a large black box under the dash that is faulty, apparently a common problem.
Hope this points you in the right direction,
Please remember to rate my effort!

insert the key into the drivers side or passender side front door, twist the key and pull open on the handle at the same time and the door will open. It might take a few times to get it, but this does work, source BMW AG Munich.

looks like you will need a drivers door lock actuator (contains the latch)if the door will not unlock with the remote either.the lock cylinder usually will fail since you had to use it everytime to unlock the door. the lock cylinder is vin specific so expect a delay when its ordered from the dealership.i would probably expect around $800 for the complete repair, kinda pricey but the dealership will go out of its way to retain a customer.
