1991 BMW 525i 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130, 00 miles
My battery completely died and the doorlocks do not work. The BMW dealer said to apply pressure and turn the lock. I tried that but almost applied enough pressure to bend the key. I have heard I can hook up a 12 volt battery to the taillights with electrical wires but I do not know where at the taillights to actually do this. I do not want to blow any fuses but get just enough juice through the electrical system to unlock the doors so I can open the hood and get a new battery. I need a BMW person very knowledgable about this procedure. The dealer was wrong. I have everything but just want to know where to attach the electrical wires to to get enough power in the system to open the doors. I am greatly indebted to anyone with an answer.
have the same problem?
