i have this coded on my x5 to work....so it can work, but from factory it SHOULDNT.
hold the trunk open button for a long hold, like 1 whole second.
if it doesnt work than you can get it coded easily. i can even close mine while moving! (havent found any use for this besides when i am a getaway driver and my bank robber buddy can jump into the trunk as we speed off)

^New to you?

A prior owner may have coded it, and a BMW dealer re-coded it to factory settings...

Or you are smoking something!

the new owner of my previous '08 X5 I traded might also be wondering how he is able to close the rear hatch, fold the mirrors, close windows and close sunroof by just using the remote......

Like Ard said, if you bought a preowned then it might have been coded by the previous owner to do what you just mentioned.

no no no i mean i thought when i bought it (few weeks ago) that i was able to do the close of the trunk but as of this weekend i cant so maybe i was imagining wishful thinking that it works since my ML has it. OH WELL, its a lease and the wife will be doing most of driving so i'm a bit cautious not to mess with anything. do you guys know if this can however be coded on a 2008? a friend has one and may like it

Thanks.I even have registration on that forum,but didnt log in for a long time.I have already coded door lock with the remote,double warning lights and others,but couldnt find the exact name of the function for the trunk close.
I am still parting the diesel,yeah.I need to recover at least part of my loss by selling the parts.
