You mentioned you hadn't checked the fuses... I would check the fuses.
Aside from that, it sounds like an electrically issue, so I would check all wiring to the trunk (on the left side bracket that holds the trunk lid). This is for starters.

ive only ever had one mechanically fine E34 sedan, and never really tinkered on it at all, but i thought the boot was mechanical on the sedan, unlike the touring?

edit: boot = trunk in non yank-land. a trunk is something an elephant or a tree has, or a clothes transportation device

edit2: come to think of it, my "boot" IS a clothes transportation device. as you were then...

E30 above Sold
