Power Trunk & Mirrors questions

Hello guys,

Longtime member first time poster.

I just picked up a 2011 535i. Loving it and walking with an extra hop in my skip.

I have couple of questions on the trunk and remote\Key.

1) Should the trunk close via remote key? It opens
2) Does the trunk close when you press the open trunk button again from the inside of the car?
3) Are the mirrors supposed to fold in via remote key?
4) Are the windows supposed to close if you hold down the middle button (BMW logo) on the key? They do open if you hold the unlock?

Any help here would be great. Now don't all of you rush outside to play with the remote

Thanks
Frank

No to the trunk questions. Unless you have the power trunk feature added as part of Comfort Access, I believe in 2014 (I have it), the trunk only unlatches with the fob or cabin button.

For the windows and roof, if Canada is like the U.S., you cannot close them with the remote. You can close them with Comfort Access if you press the door handle lock area and hold it, or if you use the actual metal key and hold it in the lock position.

The mirrors only fold/unfold with the button on the driver armrest. Although I think some people may have had some custom coding to fold when they lock the doors, not sure.

Coding will do everything you mention with the qualification that your trunk has to be motorized (button on the inside of trunk lid lip) in order to be closeable by the key fob.

OP, welcome. As mentioned above, if your car is equipped with Comfort Access (a button inside the cabin for hydraulic/powered truck is a giveaway if you don't know), you can recode the car's software to allow remote close of the trunk from both inside and the fob, and close windows and fold mirrors from the fob. Even without CA, you can code the car to close windows from the fob. If you check the coding sub-forum on this site, there is a ton of information on it and for a fee, some members offer the service in-person or remotely via the web.

All models have the trunk release button in the cabin. The remote close capability requires Comfort Access, denoted by the close and lock buttons inside the trunk itself.
