    i'm assuming you've tried everything that was obvious (does it have the trunk release on the key, trunk release on the dash, button on the trunk?). not sure if your model has all of the above or not, but most newer BMWs do.



    do the rear seats fold down? if they do, can you locate the emergency release handle (i believe all autos after a certain year have to have a release handle inside the trunk to allow someone to open it from the inside in case of an emergency)? your owner's manual should tell you where it is. find it and pull it and see if it opens. once open, see if anything is ubstructing the latch. it may have given up the ghost and you'll need a new mechanism.

Have you tried to use the key manualy? usually is you put the key in the key hole and turn past the normal lock position it will open up for you from there you will want to check the fuses located in the right rear portion of the trunk

There should be a positive connection under the hood that is normally used for jump starting the car. Use jumper cables to power that connection and an engine ground from another car. That will power the car's electronics so you can open the trunk (boot) and replace the battery.

NEED TO REPLACE REAR STRUTS HOW DO I GET TO THE STRUT MOUNTS 2001 BMW 740IL


I should not try to answer this as I have never seen the inside of a 2001 740 trunk but..........
I am pretty certain that you will need to pull up the trunk lining and it won't be easy. If you want to do this without damaging the lining, you will probably need to remove other parts, such as the rear deck speakers and likely the rear seat back, to get the lining out.
Or you can just take a box cutter to the lining at the top of the shock tower and glue it back when you are done. Much quicker.
How much do you care about how the inside of the trunk looks? Getting the rear speakers out of a 10-year-old BMW without damaging the speaker grills is tricky as well, and I would be a lot more worried about the appearance of my speaker grills than my shock towers.

My 2001 325ci convertable bmw has the trunk light on. With it on, the electric roof will not work. Is there power going to the trunk latch. If so, which wire has the power. Is there a way to bypass...


The system is designed so that with the trunk open it will not open the roof. If the trunk is fully closed and the trunk light is still on, then find the switch in the boot which operates the light. If you disconnect any wires you could disable the boot completely. Including security.

Cannot open doors to 1994 bmw 740 il with key. battery is dead and located under rear seat. key will open up trunk.


hi jim, try lifting up on the driver's outside door handle slowly while turning the key in the unlock position. The lock cylinder design has a cam on it that usually will catch while lifting the handle. if you have no luck on the driver's side, try the same thing on the passenger's side. be patient, it make take a few tries before the door unlocks.
