You have to stick the key in the trunk and unlock the trunk to get the gas door open!

My two rear doors will not open when unlocked from the inside and also my Gas Tank door will not open and seems to be locked.


The two rear doors seems to be a child safety lock issue. Check on the door jams and see if there is a switch, or check your manual if you have one. The gas tank door should also have a switch in the car, or a cable beside the seat or somewhere. I'm not that familiar with BMW, so i am just trying to do some helpful guessing.

1998 bmw 528i battery died. How can I unlock the


I am not familiar with this car, but most with electric locks can be unlocked the old fashioned way by placing the key in the lock and turning. Barring that, call for a wrecker or locksmith to open the car, or somehow get power to the electrical system to power the locks. If the hood is open, or openable from the outside, just use jumper cables to apply power. Perhaps you could get to the starter feed cable (or even the batter feed) from underneath the car. I hope this gives you some idea that is helpful in resolving your problem.

1998 bmw 528i battery died how to open trunk. cant get in with the key


You can jump your 98 528i from under your hood. On top of the center of your engine there is a positive (+) sign. You have to pry the cover open and there is also a negative ground spot to the left of that. Bmw is pretty smart!

it sounds like the lock actuator inside the door has frozen. if that is the case, you will have to remove the inner door panel partially or fully to gain access to the actuator.if you press down on the door lock knob, does it move down.if not I would definitely suspect a failed actuator.
