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!

SOURCE: I just go locked out of my X5 BMW 2002 x5 and my

right i had this ***** of a problem 2nd week in jan 2010. a bmw mechanic told to jack car up at front and hook a jumper pack up to live on starter motor terminal and then earth, was quite hard to put croc clip on to starter but did manage it. this was supposed to back charge to battery to get enough power to open car with remote, in theory it should of worked but i gave up after 3 hours-no power. so i got my key put it in drivers door and mechanically turned to open position, then i got a cutlery knife from kitchen and wrapped some insulation tape around tip up 2-3 inches. then i pushed this down glass directly above door handle key end to pry a gap between glass and rubber just enough to slide coat hanger wire in with small hook on end then i manouvered wire hook until i hooked latch arm which i did within 1 minute pulled coathanger wire up and pulled door handle the door opened much to my delight. this was a major sigh of relief after trying for 2 days to get in, and many hours searching the net for a solution which i couldnt find. THIS WORKS 100 percent WITH ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE!!!!!!! any questions email me- jimanddiane@live.co.uk

SOURCE: How to replace BMW X5 E53 Trunk Upper Lid Latch

First, watch your fingers, this can be hazardous. You may only need an adjustment in the mating surface of the latch. If you have an automatic pull-down feature on the lock, then more care will be needed to adjust this.

Because of the linkage inside the door, and electric connections, you most likely will need to remove the decorative doorlid panel. There can be conceled bolts if everything is not held together by plastic snaps.

But for the striker plate assembly in the bottom of the cargo frame opening, you may only find a big loop of metal with several bolts holding it in place. If any heavy object was recently raked across this fixture, then the adjustment may have been smashed out of alignment. You only need to reset this metal loop to provide for a tight latching fit.

Bet to check afterwards with a garden hose to see if the seal is tight.

An alternative repair shop could be a Glass shop. The procedure to replace a rear window inside the hatch depends on how it is hinged. A shop such as this could work on the latch. Also Collision shops would be very good for Body alignment issues involving latches.

I hope my solution is helpful.

How do you jump a battery on a bmw x5 2005


There should be a positive connection in a plastic box under the hood, between the US passenger side strut tower and the firewall. It will have a big red plus sign on the lid.
Clamp your negative lead to the lifting lug on the head, or any other good ground connection.
