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!

You can get in car trunk by rolling down your rear seats and you should be able to get your stuff out of the car.

I have a 1997 528i bmw and i took the battery out and i can not get back into the trunk even with the key what do i do


You can get back into the trunk, this is tricky but i have done a few times use the key in the trunk key hole and turn key one way all the way and then turn the other way while slightly lifting on trunk.

try it a few times it is tricky but trunk will open, there is something about the way the lock is set up due to it using battery voltage to open it, but with out battery it is funny, do not give up, turn key all the way both ways, the key will turn a little further to the left i think to open trunk. good day. let me know the out come.

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.
