Connect jumper cables to the starter connection which should be visible under the car, hot to the bolted battery cable connection, negative to any ground. Connect the other end to a battery after you have crawled out from under the car.  Also consider; my BMW had the battery in the trunk, which should open with a key.

Once I used this advice (going to the passenger side door and holding the handle up while turning the key) - it worked but now the passenger side door lock will not work. What can I do?

SOURCE: dead battery

The solenoid is holding the power locks down. Go to the passenger door and use the key while holding up the door handle. You'll have to turn the key pretty hard to manually raise the lock.

Why wont my doors unlock bmw 735i 1992 what part do i need to replace


Wiring issues is what is sounds like. I also own a 1992 735i Mine was because of a bad ground wire. BMW built the locks to be able to "deadbolt" you can only emergency unlock (when you have no power to the doors, or dead battery) on the passenger side. Also make sure you have a new battery. Or a decent one. Bosch or Interstate.

1988 CADI Eldorado Barrites, 4.5 liter v8: locked keys in car, call locksmith, put air bags in door for space in order to slide his metal stick in to unlock, pull the handle, push the electric door lock...


You most likely have a central locking system that will stay locked until you can unhook the battery. This is sounds like a similar problem I had with my 95 BMW.

Need to charge battery but electric doors are locked


haha, terrible luck eh... probably would need someone to unlock the door for you. Tow truck drivers open doors for people that locked their keys in the car all the time. So they should be able to do it. So can a locksmith.

I have a 1988 BMW 750il and my battery is dead, and I can't unlock my doors, how can I get in my car?


I usually jack up the car and use a pair of jumper cables. Connect the red cable to the starter lead that the battery cable attaches to and the black cable to any good body ground. Connect the other ends of the jumper cables to a good hot battery. Use jack stands for saftey reasons. Be careful and good luck. It always works for me.
