Mein Auto: 2001 740il
try opening the trunk. disconnect battery. take screwdriver and close trunk latch. reconnect battery. use mechanical key in lock to open latch. my 740 had the same problem when I bought it. took a while to figure out, it was just confused. I have to do this every time the battery goes dead. (it sits alot) good luck, Tim
