Try this - I looked but the first video looked like you were expected to crawl under your car and clip a jumper + lead to the starter and the negative to anywhere on the body
This might help more:

Basically passenger door - insert key - pull up on handle and then start turning the key to unlock and it will mechanically do just that so you can enter the car via that door

Hi
You may have broken the door handle inner component, which is a DIY job (£50 or so) you tube has a video on how to remove and replace the “carrier” it is quite tricky but can be done as I have on my 2001 X5 after a hard frost and hevy hands.

SOURCE: bmw x5 2005 drivers door will not open from inside

I have exactly the same problem with a 2002 X5. The passenger door handle has no resistance on it from either inside or outside and as such I cannot open the door. I am now wondering how to get the trim off to see what is bust inside. Anyone got any ideas??

SOURCE: how to gain access in to bmw x5 2001. battery flat

When all else fails - some ideas:

(1) locksmith who does house calls - they'll have a locksmith's kit (consisting of dozens of
oddly-shaped metal wires/probes, wedges, slim-jim, etc.) to open nearly any car door.
This costs about $30-$40.

(2) dealership may be able to help - esp if you have "Roadside Assistance" coverage on your
(new?) BMW.

(3) AAA - you membership may cover accidental lockouts.

(4) if you can get into the trunk with they key - and push forward your fold-down rear seats (if so
equipped), then you're in - but I don't know if this car's seats fold down.

(5) there might be a clever way to pop the hood release from below (jack up the car to see).
If so, hook up a spare charged battery (or battery charger - everyone should have one) to
the car battery just long enough to get in with your key or keyless remote.
Note that you only need to hook up the Positive
battery terminal to the battery - the Negative terminal (of battery charger or battery) can be
connected to any part of the frame/unibody. Why: This car's electrical system uses the frame
as a negative/ground.

HOW DO I FIND THE LOCATION OF THE 2001 BMW X5 3.O emergency fuel door release?


Open the boot and to the right hand side of the boot you will see a green round button pull on it and it will pull the locking actuator back allowing you to open the fuel flap, if you can't see the green button then it may have dropped behind the boot cover and you will need to pull the cover back to get to the green pull button.
