Question about 1999 BMW 318 ti
I disconnected the battery in the boot to recharge it, but the boot lid blew shut and now I need help to get in. Central locking not an option as no power and for some reason the none of the keys will go into lock on boot all the way, so will not turn. Thinking logically I thought I could remove back seat and get access that way, but so far only able to remove base cushion.
It sounds like you can get into the front of the vehicle. you can back feed power through the cigarette lighter in the vehicle. Also you can pop the hood and connect jumper wires to the jump start points underneath the hood. You could also apply power to the fuse box and ground to chassis. the easiest would be using the cigarette lighter (just don't turn on the vehicle to the point where there are a lot of loads going through the cigarette lighter or you'll pop the fuse)
