BMW 325i I am locked out of my 2001 325 I. They key buttons

Resolved Question:

I am locked out of my 2001 325 I. The key buttons will not open the door locks or the truck. The driver door linkage is also broken. Can this car be opened by a lock smith with a slim jim? Or is there another way in?

Hi You could get into the trunck using the trunck lock cylinder. But if you dont have the ski bag hole really will not help much. If the linkage is broken in driver door and remote is dead a lock smith will be needed. The have other tools now they use they have wedge kits to pry on the door so you can get a rod in there to open the door. Mike

Ignition? Thanks
