Trunk on my 650i won't open

Hi, all of a sudden the trunk on my 650i won't open. I've tried every thing I can think of - pushing the interior button located by the left door post, lifting on the BMW insignia on the truck and pressing the trunk open button on the key fob. The panel light keeps showing that the truck lid is open. An help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Roseng,

Unfortunately, we tried that with no success. We did manage to access the trunk through the Ski Bag, by unzipping the same. Using a coat hanger, we managed to open the trunk utilizing the emergency pull. Once opened, we examined the latch and found that it is not operating properly. Bummer! We will probably need to replace the latch. The pull cord attached to the emergency pull did not spring back.

I had this happen but in reverse. Opened the trunk with the low left dash switch, and then it would not latch to close. I had to go back and press the open button again to send another pulse to the trunk latch and it popped back to the normal position.

Good thought but If it was the fuse, the manual key method would have worked. Sounds like the mechanism is bad.

couple times opening my trunk with the button on the bottom left it opened, but when i went to close it it wouldn't and i had to press the button again for it to actually close, another thing i want to know is can you open the trunk by pressing in the bmw logo on trunk because in my 04 e64 it never was able to open by pressing the logo in to where the key lock is visible...

No, the fault light is not lit. Sorry for the delay in replying, but I was away from the address where my 650i is located.

Hi. Inserting the key and attempting to open the trunk manually does not work. Probably the trunk lock mechanism is broken?!?
