1988 Other BMW Models 6 cyl Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 200000 miles

I need help. Please! The battery is dead on my 88 BMW 735i and the key will not open the locked doors. I've been told a slim jim won't work. The trunk lock does not open it either.
How do I get into my car to boost the battery? And I will never lock the doors again. :(
Do you
have the same problem?

This happened to me. Drivers side door is the only way we found worked. Wedge or airbag the window and with a long hooked object pull mechanical lock to the rear. Wax string looped around the vertical lock with applied pressure to door handle may help or work in conjunction with previous step. It took me and another guy about an hour.
Hope this helps! Good Luck.
No need to leave your car unlocked after new battery is installed but dont forget your radio code!
