Mein Auto: 00' Imola Red 528i MSport
Old topic,no solutions

i have a 2000 528i Msport, recently the trunk button (on kickpanel, trunk handle and key remote) stopped working, however when pressing the button in the car i can hear the relay in the glove box clicking

more recently both key remotes (3 button diamond style) stopped working all togeather. no relay clicks, nothing. when locking the door with the key, all others lock and the single beep alarm tone sounds, along with the park light flash. doing so also locks the fuel door (should not with blown fuse) upon check all fuses (in trunk and glove box) all is ok, no blown fuses.

any thoughts?

Pull the trunk gaiter back (right front corner) and check for broken wires.

Of the trunk lid. Visible with the trunk open, between the body structure and the trunk lid.
