your lock cylinder needs rebuilding. easy job. :-) order a repair kit for about 50.00-u get all the key codes to replace yours including lube and cylinder I believe.
my bmw tech buddy told me it's quite possible the rod might be missing or broke which allows the door to open. the close rod is still obviously on. Now it's just a matter of finding it in the door. not much space to work in.
