Re: BMW CONVERTIBLE SOFT TOP
I believe that your trunk is unlocked and to prevent damage the system locks it self, check the trunk.
lock it with your key then try it out.
that happened on a audi cabriolet and we locked up the trunk and problem solved. let me know if that helps, if not i will try something else

Turn on the radio so the battery is engaged, or turn on the engine.
Fold down the cargo partition in
the trunk and lock it on both sides. If the cargo partition is not
down, there will be no place in the trunk to store the convertible top.
Press the convertible button
forward to open the top. It's located under the circular control button
on the consul. The button has a picture of a window with one arrow
pointing up and another pointing down.
Pull the convertible button backward to close the top.
Use your key to open or close
the top when you are outside of the BMW but still close to it. Press and
hold the arrow button on top of your key to open the top. To close the
top, press and hold the Lock button. The car does not need to be
turned on to operate the top with the key.
Manual roof procedure
The procedure in the manual is just for closing the top.
A) Turn key to OFF for several seconds to bleed off hyd pressure. B) Turn key to MAR (full electrical, but before start) C) Remove cap on bulkhead behind the right-hand seat and use flat head screw driver to unfasten the hyd unit valve in order to relieve the oil pressure in the circuit. D) Remove the cap on the bulkhead behind the left-hand seat and using screwdriver or allen wrench press until the top covering (panel behind roll bars that covers the convertible top well) until the panel's locks are released - you may have to tap the wrench to release the locks. E) Lift the top covering manually and keep it open while extracting the top from its well. F) Remove top from well until the front part is near the windshield frame. G) Lift the rear part of top (rear window) upwards and lower the top covering until the hooks are resting on their respective locks. H) While still keeping rear part of convertible top lifted upward press Button 1 to attach the top covering locks.
Button 1 is the forward one Button 2 is the rear one.
I) Make sure locks are fastened. if not - try pushbutton 1 again. If necessary repeat D and H J) Rest rear part of convertible top on top of covering. K) At front of convertible top, open (deploy) the top's hooks by using allen wrench to turn the pin mechanism. (located in center of front headliner) L) Press top unto windshield frame and use wrench to lock the hooks. M) Press the rear of convertible top, so hooks on rear top insert into respective slots and press Button 2 to secure. N) Keep Button 2 pressed until hooks properly fasten.
If the top is still tightly latched at the front, you can just start at step "G":
While holding the back of the top in the air, and the "top cover" resting down on its "hooks", press button 1 until it seats well.
Then lower the back of the top down to mate its "hooks" and press it down while holding button 2 until the top seats well.
Hi, I don`t know the car but sometimes when you can`t open a boot lid someone need to push the boot lid down ( this relase the pressure of the latch system)and the same time someone pull the handle. Hope that helps.

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.
