The things that are occuring are part of the crash recognition programming of the SRS Airbag module, in the event of a crash the SRS module will turn on the hazards, the interior lights and unlock all the doors. One of the impact sensors is in the SRS module under the center console, stuff from above gets down into the connector to the SRS ( supplimental restaint system) Air bag module or worse into the module, this causes the system to think a crash is inpending and then the doors unlock, the interior lights turn on and the hazard flashers are activated. The Airbag SRS module is located under the center console of the car, remove the rear cupholder and A/C vent above it and you can see the module with a yellow connector (only thing there other than vent tube), clean the connector let dry out and reattach to the module, if that doesn't cure the problem the Airbag SRS module must be replaced.

    !st make sure the connector doesn't have contamination in it, check the module itself for contamination, then see if that cures the problem, if the connector is damaged or corroded then you must replace the connector or the pins in it, after you are sure you have a clean connection then and only then replace the module. And as far as I know no special programming is required, but the module will be very expensive, don't know the exact cost. Call the local BMW dealer to confirm it doesn't need any programming.

1997 BMW 528i The passenger side front and rear doors won't


I had the same problem on the rear door of my 1998 528i and it was the door actuator that had gone bad. I had to take the rear seat out to get the door panel off. Once I had the door panel off it was not that difficult to replace the door actuator.
