Hope this helps:
Your vehicle is equipped with an inter- lock. Therefore, the ignition key cannot be turned to position 0 and removed until the selector lever is in position "P" (Interlock).

SOURCE: AC stopped working and not responding to controls

You might want to check the outside ambient temperature sensor, located in the right front wheel well, when these become damaged, the dash temp reading might say somewhere around -44degF if this is the case replace the sensor and things should be okay.

SOURCE: I need specific information on the1997 BMW 528i

There should be a connection under the hood where you can jump the battery. Look for a plastic box with a red plus sign on it. Open it to find the connection point. Connect the negative cable to a solid metal part such as the lifting lug on the head.

There may be a tumbler pin stuck up that will not move to let the key in. Get some powdered graphite and puff it in the key hole then try inserting the key again take care with the powder as it will leave a black smudge that you can wipe away with a damp rag

Have you determined that the starter is getting the voltage/current at its terminals? It is unlikely that the starter seized after only a few months. If you have someone else available, have them hold the key to the start position while you hit the starter motor with a hammer. If the starter begins cranking, your problem is likely sticking brushes in the starter motor. If that's the case, remove the starter motor and disassemble to address the problem or get another starter motor.

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!
