Battery dead, Cant unlock doors

Ok, some big dummy left my fog lights on all day.
Battery is dead, key will NOT unlock anything.
WTF? Is there a hidden post to put jumper cable to?
1993 740IL, Battery under back seat.
I took my window out ( another story ) and am getting a boost now.
Any answers? I'll check thread tomorrow.
Thanks!!!!

Uhhh...if the universe is still expanding, WTF is it expanding into?

2. Turn counter clock-wise half turn
3.Lift door handle up

WS> Not manually.
antose9> I wished my manual wasn’t in the glove box, hopefully my dumb butt ( I mean teh dummy that left my fog lights on) wont have to ever to try that. You should see the bruise on my arm from squeezing it through the window.
I was able to put my hand on the lock inside the car, still would not unlock. Put the jumper cables to it and viola!
Thanks!!

Glad it got solved. Maybe there is an issue with the lock linkage.
