The exact thing happened to me, it is a common thing. What happened is your trunck button got jammed up so the car thinks the button is always pushed.
Open your truck and look at the button, it should look like it is jammed inside the hole for the truck button. What my dealer did was unjam it and glue the lip of the button to the car so it would be able to wedge inside the hole anymore.
: I think the actuator motor on my 97 528i died. The trunk won't latch shut, and squeezing the lid release doesn't result in the normal "click" sound. Locking/unlock with remote and key didn't clear it. Has anybody else lost the motor, or could it just be a fuse?
