I need to get into the passenger compartment that hold my keys. The trick is that the only thing that is unlocked would be the trunk. Is there anyway to get through the trunk and into the car???? I need help ASAP. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
my BMW dealer finally opened so I called them and they said there was no way to get in from the trunk. now lets switch up the question. the whole situation started by me warming up the car in the morning and pressing the lock down when i was shutting the door to go back inside. so the car is still running. what would be the best way to turn off the car from the outside? its not good for fuel injected cars to just completely run out of gas, therefore drying the injectors. any help at all would be appreciated. thanks guys.
If you could get to the trunk... you could get through to the cabin.. it might mess up the top of the seat where it latches.. but if thats what it takes.. then thats what it takes... just push really hard.. its only plastic.. the ones on the bottom that latch.. are steel... or alluminum... so chance there... but you cant get into the trunk.. can you??
I think you said the trunk was unlocked right???
If so.. you can carefully diconnect the battery cables... I know this isnt exactly good for your car... but.. it will work... it will turn her off....
are u sure disconnecting battery cables will turn off the car? cars with dead bateries can run..
u CAN get to ur hood.. under the car, look up at the hood and try to find the release for it, and then push it with a screwdriver or something..
u can also unlock the car from the windows, AAA does it all the time.. get a coathanger, well first u gotta put something between the window and the door so u can see, and there is the little lock thing that u just yank up with the coathanger.. lol
ok I have asked around and you can try these methods on top of the ones mentioned above.
1. try pulling down the window by hand. you will have to use a lot of force. Don't worry you would break the power window motor.
2. You could consider taking the windscreen out as a whole. I don't know if your area has mobile windscreen replacement services. If you do, get them to come and remove the windscreen, then put it back on again. I think it's a cheaper option then breaking the window.
3. try wedging your screwdriver in the locking mechanism of your back seat and see if that works.

but it wont.
Potato in exhaust pipes?
If you can get into the engine bay, you can shut it off at least:
Undo fuses relating to the DME and stuff - That's what I'd do.
if that dosn't work for some mysterious reason, unhook the spark plug coil packs all at once as fast as you can.
If for some reason your engine is deisiling ater the DME and the spark plugs were disabled, you could take a piece of steel or somthing really strong, undo the airbox, and cover the MAF duct so it dosn't get any air heh.
Get under the car and unhook the fuel filter..
Well since this was yesterday, I dont think this matters anymore.
