    I have a BMW 330CI 2005 model. Had not used it for 2 months; battery is completely dead. The car is locked and I don’t see even the red light blinking (locking). I do have external battery and jumper cables but can’t open the trunk as it has no keyhole & I can't get in the car. There is a key...

    First things first - I drive an 05' 745Li I managed to lock my keys in my trunk. I loaded my arms full of stuff, set my keys down to get more stuff, then forgot to pick them back up. I called my insurance company and they sent a lock smith out who was unable to get into the vehicle. My...

    Being stranded at work for an hour :thumbdwn:, I've read the wiki and the forums, and I don't see an answer yet. Here's the facts: - I drove my car to work with no issues - 8 hours later, I unlocked my car using the key - When I opened the driver's side door, all the windows opened fully (not...

    When I try to open my liftgate with the key remote or the cabin button, the latch activates multiple times and the gate is left in the locked position. Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

    I'm a noob at this entire mechanicin' game, but I've done fairly well with all of my other issues thanks to the web and, specifically, this site. The problem I am tackling this time is my brakes. I have researched this, up and down, and I think I have a diagnosis. I want to be sure I am not...

    I think my car was hit by a paintball which set off my alarm and now the hood won't open. Nothing happens when I pull on the hood lever, the cable that goes from the lever to the hood latch is still in tact. Is there a way to reset something? Could the alarm have caused this? And how do I fix it?

    I need your opinion. In view of the maintenance including battery life, etc, should the car be locked or unlocked when parked in the garage?
