Once a battery is dead it's kind of hard to bring it back to life. If you do get it running again it's usually living on borrowed time. First of all add the water to the correct levels. Then either jump start the car with the battery in it and run it for a couple of hours. If this works make sure you don't stop it until you get back home or to the garage. Then try restarting it. If it restarts you're in luck. The other thing you can do is take the battery out and put a trickle charge on it from a battery recharger. Also get yourself a battery water checker to see if it's holding the charge. If it holds the charge put it back in your car and try starting it.

Hi....I still have an old original battery for E34.....Is it possible to revive it by adding distilled water ??? could use it for something ....
