Question about 2002 BMW 5 Series
Hi .on the dashboard of my x5 reads your boot lid is open. I checked it but its closed and the lights are on all the time.The other thing is when i drive you can hear the noise on the back .Can you help me.THANKS
Sounds like a faulty microswitch which is located on the boot lock mechanism, even though the boot might be locked, its still thinking its open and would need replacing. Unfortunately, I believe that this comes as one piece with the boot lock.
Another thing to be aware of one these is the wiring loom coming out from the body of the car and into the bootlid (on the right hand side boot lid when open) If you pull the rubber "tubing" off you'll gain access to the wiring. A common fault is for the wires to stress/break causing false contact. Hopefully one of these two problems should be your cause. Let me know how it goes!
