Need assistance- BMW dealer cannot figure out issue
While driving car- everynow and than you hear what sounds like the right passenger door or drivers door pop open yet the door does not open. You than hear the auto close mechanism noise ( the car has the utomatic closing doors ( like many trunks have). BMW dealer went thru the latches and called BMW looking for a bulletin- nothing showing up. I have young childern and this is scary should the door ever open up while we are driving.
Last night we heard the noise again and this time on dash board it said door open. I was driving 60 mph when this happen. Any assistance is appreciated.

There is a valet switch in he center console and make sure it is switched on so it will open. Does it open from trunk switch on the trunk or from the manual key cylindr in the trunk deck lid? If it does not work from the manual key release on the deck lid then the lock in the trunk is faulty and will need to be drilled and removed unless your a lucky one and have the ski boot opening in the center of backseat fold down arm rest ? If there is a opening then use a hanger and grab the emergency release handle at the right rear of the trunk deck lid underneath, it is glow in the dark colored.
Take the door panel off and investigate ,then you will have a better idea as to the problem ,like is their power to the motor and then work your way back from their ,is the mechanism ok and not the lifting cables jammed up .No instant fix iam afraid
Hi, I purchased a 2006, BMW 750li 7 months ago..this car has 71,000 miles and I hardly drove it since buying it.However, I noticed that fluids was leaking and to my a long story short, I took it the the BMW dealership-they changed the oil pan, but the reason for going was because it started showing transmission fault, and when I put the gear in drive it jumps back to park-on top of a very hard jerk when I put into drive to drive off. I ask the dealer to re set the fault control, but the car is doing the same thing..anyone has a solution to this problem? The said I need a transmission, and it will cost $7,700.00
Unfortunately there is no easy Do It Yourself answer for this. You need to have a BMW specialist check out the code if there is a faulty sensor or if the computer system needs to be reset.
You don't necessarily have to go to the dealer as there are independent shops who have certified BMW specialists or can refer you to one - sometimes, you can find one on Craiglist who can come out to you.
