    Hi can anyone help.

    I have a 2001 320d e46. A couple of weeks ago my boot lid button on my key and the button on the boot lid stopped working. The only way i can access the boot is by turning the key in the lock.

    Also, although the boot is shut, the boot is shown as open on my dashboard. It sounds like a fuse to me, but the fuse list makes no mention of the boot. Also the interior light in the boot is not working either. All other central locking, interior lights etc are working fine.

    Anyone got any ideas? do you know what fuse relates to the bootlid switch?

    Thanks for any help

    Have you checked the bootlid switch-sounds like its not working properly and you need a new one

    I have heard that the micro switch on the latching system fails and shows you the light error. Maybe you can check this out?

    Did you check the wires goin from the body to the boot lid, sometimes they do break with all the opening and closing of the boot lid

    The boot switch could be checked with a multimeter.

    As for the wiring you will need to peel the harness covering right back, like this, http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...problems-t208/
