Under the hood there is a POWER POINT for you to hook up jumper cables . use it ! attach jumpers to a running car ,or a charged battery . this will power up your car and let you get into your trunk . GOOD LUCK

Yes, you should see toward the rear of engine a plastic red cap covering the positive, and a bare metal post on the side wall for the negative.

Using another battery you could possibly try to use jump wires at the switch connector plug. That is all I can think of that you can do other than calling a tow truck to take it to a shop.

2007 BMW 328i trunk will not open


If trunk won't open on 328, open the pass through on rear seat, then use a walking cane or something else that hat a hook on end to reach the emergency release lever located on the inside bottom of trunk lid. I disconnect my battery for five months, and this is how I gain access to the battery. Also, check fuse box in glove box to see if the trunk activator fuse is blown.

Search the BMW forums like Pelican Parts or DTM Power or United Bimmer Community. When I read of problems with convertible trunk lids, a common suspect is a failure in the system that won't allow the trunk to open when the roof is down.

1997 bmw convertable trunk will not open


I vaguely recall reading something in the owners manual of my '97 328 regarding the trunk and the master key. Something about locking things with the master key so that valets cannot open your trunk with the valet key.
Try unlocking the driver door or the trunk with the master key (the original key that had the LED flashlight in it.

Try to remove the back of the back seat or try to remove the radio speaker in the back and if you can do either one of those you will be able to get to your keys in the trunk.

The problem is that your roof(SOFT TOP) lid isnt closing properly. If you open the roof lid you see there is a button on one of the latches that tells the car that the roof is securely closed if your roof lid is not secure the trunk wont open. To test this press down on the roof lid and the try to open the trunk.
