I recently bought a 2001 E46 330ci, the boot release worked when I test drove the car but when I picked the car up the dealer said he had to do a workaround to get the number plate light to work and that stopped the boot release from working, I can only unlock the...

It started intermittently to begin with, sometimes it would - sometimes it wouldnt open it, but now nothing at all, looking at realoem, it...
