Asked by Apr 21, 2008 at 06:43 PM about the 2001 BMW 7 Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 7 series.  A week ago my info screen went out.  The next day when I turned the car off the hazard would not turn off for 5 mintues.  Then eventually went off.  Now, I can't the car unlocked either by the remote or by use of the key into the door.  Any secret to getting it to unlock.

Obviously I know it is electrical but it is locked on my garage and I can't get it out.  Don;t know if it can evenbe towed since it will have to be pulled out.

Sounds like the BCM is on the fritz. You should be able to put it in neutral to get it pulled out of the garage. Have a dealership check this out. Someone like Pop-A-Lock should be able to unlock the car manually.
