Yellow light is flashing and the trunk dont open by hand no more some time well work but dont work nomore 2 years

I have a 2000 323i and the the doors need to be unlocked (all, not just the driver's door) for the trunk to be opened manually. Also, if you lock the glove compartment the trunk will not open. Check these first, it may be your problem.
