Question about BMW 5 Series
I have a 1998 540I and same thing. Battery is dead and can't get in the doors or the trunk with the key. Tried opening the handle and then turning the key as well. Nothing.
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".
