Trunk won't close

I got a 2005 530i, noticed my key remote wouldn't work for my trunk, then the trunk release from inside the car stopped working also. Used my key to open my trunk now it will not close. The latch stays in the open position. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Take the cover off the right side where the battery is located find the wire that lead to your trunk latch, check them to see if the are spliced. I had thought it was my latch and bought a new one only to find out it was these wires.
