How do you unlock a BMW from the inside?

Can you tell me how to unlock my new (to me) BMW from the inside? It’s an older model and it’s confusing. I know how to unlock it to get into the car, but sometimes it locks while I’m driving and I don’t know how to unlock all of the doors at once. It’s embarrassing when I have passengers!

It’s not too difficult to unlock a BMW from the inside if you have the iDrive system. With iDrive, you can change the settings in your car to unlock all of your doors with the unlock button. Simply select Settings > Doors > Unlock button > All doors on your display screen. This will allow you to unlock all of your doors at once using the central lock button on your dashboard!
Unfortunately, however, there isn’t a good way to unlock a BMW from the inside if you don’t have the iDrive system. You can unlock the doors by pulling on the handle front the inside. If your passenger is outside of your car, however, you’ll either have to reach over or get out to unlock the door for them.
