Cant unlock car while battery is dead


The driver's door lock is a mechanical linkage, not electric. Turn the top of the key toward the front of the vehicle. If it will not open, there is a mechanical problem in the door; your local AAA tow company can break in with a "slim jim".

The break light is on


540i bmw 2000
The brake light on the dashboard will come on if the brake fluid is low. This can be caused by
brake/shoe/pad/rotor wearing down i.e you need to do a brake job.

Locked out


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.

Engine suddenly dies, all electrical goes out as well


Sounds to me like a poor battery cable connection. I am not familiar with the BMW cable routing but it should be simple enough to follow and repair.

First disconnect the negative cable from the battery and leave it disconnected until the final step.

Dicsonnect the positive battery terminal, clean the battery and cable terminal with a wire brush or light sand paper. Apply some dieletric grease or light coat of chasis grease and reconnect the cable to the battery. Follow the positive cable and do the same procedure to all connections down to the starter. Along this route you may notice a smaller wire connected enroute with a fusable link or fuse. Make sure to check these for loosness and or melted wire coating this can be a sign of a loose connection and your problem.

With the positive cable connections completed and reinstalled. Do the same to the negative cable, remembering not to reconnect the negative terminal to the battery until the very last step.

Sorry I don't have more knowledge of the wiring on the BMW.

Hope that helped.
Good Luck
