Question about 1997 BMW M3
If you have recently had the key made, it's possible that it needs to be cut again. If all of the cuts in the key are not exact, it could cause your key to unlock doors, and fit ignition, but sometimes it will not work on other locks such as the truck, glove box, etc. If the key is an original, chances are, it could be one of two things.
Either there is another key that goes to the trunk(perhaps the lock cylinder was replaced at one time, or the actual mechanism inside the trunk is either broken or malfunctioning. If this is the case, you'll most likely have to access the trunk through your back seat to open your trunk and/or look to see what the problem is.
However, if you are not comfortable doing this yourself, then I suggest calling a local locksmith. If you can take the car to them, they should be able to get it fixed rather inexpensively. Hope this helps and have a great afternoon!
