Can anyone tell me why the trunk open warning light stays on. The trunk is very secure. However, to make matters worse, the convertible top will not come down because it thinks the trunk is open. It's a 2001 325 CI Convertible.
ACK...that just happened to me too. What it ended up being was that there was actually a wire that was sheared in half. It's located in the "wire sheath" on the right hand side by the trunk hinge when the trunk is open.
mtnbound you are the man. I thought that there could be no way that those wires could get damaged. But, I looked and sure enough 5 wires were cut in half or badly damaged. In 10 minutes it was fixed. Thanks a ton.:rofl:
It was the wiring running from the trunk to the trunk lid. Just like I read in this forum.
I cut open the rubber protector around th ewirin gleading from Trunk to Trunk Lid; and
more than half the wires had cut into. After splicing them back. My trunk light, back0up light, trunk release, and trunk quick open started workering.
same here broken wires in rubber sheath between trunklid and body. had been previously repaired. broke beside repair if you look at the trunklid closeing you will see the extreme angle of the harness.
