The battery in my 89 325ix is dead. Unfortunately, the lock to the trunk door decided to stop working at the same time, so now I have no access to the battery. In the past, when the trunk lock acted up on me, I would simply lock/unlock the driver door to cycle the locking system and this would in turn unjam the trunk lock. But I can't do that now since the battery is so drained the central lock function is dead. So here's my question: Is it possible to boost the car from the engine compartment? :(

Problem solved. On the firewall on the passenger side there is a plastic cover marked with a "+". Connected jumpers (with negative to body) and started car no problem. :)
