Cant get into my 735i :( help.

The battery was dead on my '90 735i this morning and I couldnt even unlock the door. I've never even contemplated what I was gonna do in this situation should it happen but how on earth do I get my doors open now? The passenger window is cracked enough to get a slender arm in, but dont know if that really means anything. Anybody please help.

im guessing you have tried to use the key in the regular key hole? that should unlock it. if the alarm starts going off hop in and turn the car on really quickly. if that still doesnt work attempt to reach an arm in and pull the door handle, that should unlock it. if that still doesnt work as a last resort (you can try calling a locksmith before this though) if you grab the top of the window, (may want to wear gloves just in case) and pull down on the window quickly you can break the plastic window retainers and the window will fall into the door. from there try and crawl in and open the hood where you can jump the car from the terminals in the engine bay. (thats what i would do at least.)

It's got those funny power locks where the key wont let me open the doors or trunk. Is there an emergency unlock code for these cars like on some of the 5 series cars?

I had the same problem. Although I was able to unlock the trunk where I had a sub and amp located. I jumped the car off of the bat line to the amp just long enough for me to run and unlock the car where popped the hood and jumped it the normal way.

How to get into a 1988 735I with a dead battery

Pull on the drivers side handle while simultaneously turning the key clockwise. Let me know if this works. It just did for me (my sister's car) about 20 minutes ago. You may have to exert a little extra effort to turn the key...
