F25 Bootlid button
Good day
I recently bought a secondhand 2011 BMW X3 20d xdrive. I am still learning about the car. The one thing I cant understand is that the Boot can only be opened with the key fob. Is there a way to change this?

F25 Bootlid button
There is a button just above the number plate, if you feel under the badge, you will feel a rubber covering, press that and it opens the boot?

Otherwise something not lekker there

There's also a button that cab open the boot near the bonnet release. It's down in the driver's footwell.

When I press the button nothing happens.

I spoke to the previous owner, apparently BMW can change a setting to enable the button on the boot...

Replace the bootlid button. They are known to wear prematurely

Mine is also somewhat intermittent. I've not really figured it out as yet!

RE: F25 Bootlid button
Both buttons faulty? The one inside the car also not working?

RE: F25 Bootlid button
I don't know if I have figured it out, but i can tell you my experience with my X1 lci,

if the car is completed locked, (all doors closed, locked car is armed and the light blinking at the mirror) and I unlock the drivers door ( i have selective unlocking, as do many), the boot remains locked. I hear a click when i place my hand at the boot switch, but it does not unlock.

If I unlock the entire car, by pressing the unlock button twice, the boot will unlock and can be opened my using the switch.

If i use the key fob to open the boot only from a completely locked state (all doors closed, locked car is armed and the light blinking at the mirror), once the boot is closed, it will be locked, meaning the car goes back to a completely locked state and i cannot open using the switch at the boot.

This is just what i experienced....

RE: F25 Bootlid button
My X3, if it's totally locked and armed, I can open the boot by just pressing the button on the bootlid and it will open. I think the selective locking can be set on the idrive.
The bootlid button is on the armrest next to the window buttons and mirror adjustments.

Not sure if it matters but I also have comfort access.

Comfort access would be keyless as well, so the car senses the key is nearby?

Yes sash. That's probably why it unlocks.
