Question about 1989 BMW 5 Series
I cannot open my 1989 bmw 525 due to dead battery. i tried the passenger door with lifting the handle, and nothing. is there a way to add a little charge to the car? pop the hood?
Open trunk, disconnect rear trunk light. use jump box and connect wires to pos neg on jump box. this will give u enough juice to open doors, I have done it twice. easy to do

Jack up the car and connect a battery booster pack to to the battery terminal on the starter. Positive cable to starter terminal and negative cable to ground on engine block. This will power the door locks so that you can use your key to unlock the door.

Unlock trunk, remove the back panel in the trunk, knock out the metal plate behind the rear seat arm rest. This will give you access to the passanger compartment. You will then need asmall child to go through the openning and pull the hood release. Once the hood is open you can power up at the battery and unlock the door.
