Hi Deborah , Your going to have to take to the dealer , there is a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the ( FTC ) folding top control module . Such as this one DTC B1296
S14 is the Folding Top Front Latch Actuator Position switch. The Folding Top Control (FTC) Module uses S14 to determine when the top is latched in both the open and closed positions. S14 closes and pulls the signal circuit low when the top is latched.

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.

My 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited convertible has a problem with the trunk latch. It won't stay closed. It keeps unlatching. Do you know what the problem is? How do I get it to stop unlatching?


I did this to my car once. Be sure the latch isn't closed as you are trying to close the trunk. With the trunk open pop the trunk once, then see if the trunk latches properly.

My trunk release is not working. I've already checked the button in glove compartment and it is on.


Hello and thank you for using FixYa!

When you open up the truck, by the latch, there is a lever. Make sure this lever is up, or down. I forget. This lever is the valet switch so try it with both. Most of the cases the lever gets bumped when getting stuff in the trunk.

Thanks Jay!

BMW 850i trunk will not open


I found if you lock the glove compartment this will disable the boot from opening. Check the solenoid on the glove compartment is not switched shut. Hope this helps.
