Unable to insert key completely into boot lock , so it wont unlock the boot

Hi Stephen:
2 things to consider:
- Key - has it been damaged? If you have a spare key try to gently jiggle it into the lock. If it won't go all the way in then the problem will be with the lock.
- Lock - Is there an obstruction? Try using WD-40 with the plastic tube in the nozzle. Slide it as far into the lock as possible and try to flush out the problem. Sometimes insects will make nests in key slots. They did in my ride on mower ignition.
Hope this helps.

sound like the micro switch on top of lock inside the drivers door may be faulty or displaced by slamming door this results in no unlock signal being sent to other doors and boots locks!

Locked keys in boot bmw316

if you are the registered owner of this vehicle your local BMW dealer can order you a new key straight from BMW, you will have to produce the registration certificate and photographic proof of ID. this wil (if your car has original locks on) solve your prob.

Hi, Somehow the boot of the car has locked

All locking and unlocking is done through the switch on the drivers door lock. Put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock several times. See if the boot opens then.
Or make sure you haven't hit the lockout button on the drivers door that stops anyone else from opening their doors. (Including the boot.)

316 reversing ligths

Hi miguel_mitie, the reverse light switch is on the right hand side of the gear box and has a square 2 pin connector, it may also be worth checking the wriring in the rear harness by the boot lid hinges as the wires have been known to break

Unable to lock car whith key.

Probably not. The reason the trunk (boot)and the doors have different keys is that the locking mechanism is completely different. I'm not sure bout this particular car but generally that's the case. Your best bet would be to try to find a door lock with a key at a junkyard or on eBay.
