Does your vehicle have navigation ? Some BMW has nav unit in trunk. If not draining battery I wouldn't worry about it. Send me your vin#
Wow high mileage? What happen to original transmission? I would highly recommend a replacement that would include parts & labor warranty of 2yr/24,000 at a minimum. Good luck.
Seems to be some sort of a electrical malfunction. You can start by check your high beam fuses if applicable. I don't believe anyone can give you an accurate price on a repair until it's properly inspected. I don't believe it's related due to its on a separate electrical circuit. However electrical issues can be releated even if they may seem far fetched. Best of wishes. Michael
It sounds as if internal door lock motor seems to be binding. Agreed have that inspected.
Check your fuseblock to confirm your fuses are good. If fuses are good, then confirm your bulbs are known to be good. Then you may want have brake lamp switch inspected.
