Mein Auto: 2003 745li
03 745Li - Trunk keeps opening

The trunk on my 745LI keeps coming up with the car in park or in drive, I have to keep the it locked or else it won't stay closed. If in the unlocked position it will go up. Does anyone know what that might be from.


Also after I turn the car off and I am listening to the radio after about 10 mins, the recharge battery light comes on, a few minutes after that comes on everything will shut off that is running on the battery. It will start back up, is this a sign of a more serious problem, or maybe a bad battery?

Does anyone suggest changing the mircro filters themselves?

I have a lot of questions hopefully someone can help.

Thank you.

Its your battery. Low batteries on these cars causes nightmares.
