Locked doors

(1990 BMW 735i)
in Fort Lauderdale, FL on March 25, 2010
I am the proud owner of a 1990 BMW 735i series, which runs perfectly. Just recently, I tried opening the locked doors with the key, but the doors will not open. However, the trunk opens, but I still cannot get inside the car. Unfortunately, I have all of my car booklets in the glove compartment in the car. Please help.

Attaching a battery charger to the trunk light worked like a charm. Saved me from calling a locksmith and charging me money that I don't have to spend. Thanks a million. And that lift the handle while turning the key is a crock of crap!!!!!!
