SOURCE: BMW 850i trunk will not open

I found if you lock the glove compartment this will disable the boot from opening. Check the solenoid on the glove compartment is not switched shut. Hope this helps.

My 2003 BMW 745LI the trunk won't release and open with remote

I had a similar problem on my 2005 E320. I found the wires going in to the trunk lid had broken. After years of opening and closing the can only flex so much before they break. Before you take it to a BMW mechanic might I suggest a reputable stereo shop? They have lots of experience taking trunk interiors apart and the electrical know how to fix your problem.

91 bmw 525i trunk latch broken @

You can buy the whole lock or the actuator motor as a part
and also the latch receiver
Didnt know this model used a cable release

you might see if the trunk has a seperate fuse if electrical

On that 525 BMW i thought the key should still open the trunk
check with a BMW service division on this next bit
if you can not open the trunk at all
its a locksmith if the key part itself is the cause
the rear seat may be able to be removed to get that trunk open
