: Automatic trunk closing

Every now and again when I press the button on the trunk for auto close it will go down 95% and then stop. If I push gently on it, it will close. Anyone else expineceing this?

I don't have the automatic closer, but I see in the manual that if you press the button again while it's closing, the lid motion will stop. Is there any chance the button is being pressed again?

No. The trunk should close with one push of the button.

Yeah this is happening after I push the button. Like I said 95% of the time it works no problem but every now and again it almost closes and then just stops. Being that I cant really recreate the problem I wasn't going to waste time bringing it by the dealership.....

Had something similiar on my wife's X5, after a while 95% turned in to 0%. They made an adjustment and all was well, annoying but has been a non issue for 6 or so months now.
