SOURCE: BMW remote control problem

I have a e60 525i that I just brought and it has the same problem, the owners manual suggests driving with the key in the ignition for a long time as the batteries are rechargable and may have gone flat, i have tried this and it doesnt seem to work

i also read something about getting water in the aerial about the rear window and that wrecks the receiever. My car isn;t under warranty so not looking forwarding to taking it to bmw

SOURCE: broken tailgate latch

Remove the paneling from inside. Than you can use a flathead screwdriver to pry the latch rod and latch enough to pop open the door.

SOURCE: 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Tailgate Latch

Many thanks, nascar2fever!

I had the same problem and of course started by trying to pry open the tailgate (gently). The problem was solved by undoing the top of the plastic panel on the inside of the tailgate until I could do a visual and slide my hand to lift the latch. The fix was to re-adjust the pull-rod to remove the excess slack in the latch.

SOURCE: I just go locked out of my X5 BMW 2002 x5 and my

right i had this ***** of a problem 2nd week in jan 2010. a bmw mechanic told to jack car up at front and hook a jumper pack up to live on starter motor terminal and then earth, was quite hard to put croc clip on to starter but did manage it. this was supposed to back charge to battery to get enough power to open car with remote, in theory it should of worked but i gave up after 3 hours-no power. so i got my key put it in drivers door and mechanically turned to open position, then i got a cutlery knife from kitchen and wrapped some insulation tape around tip up 2-3 inches. then i pushed this down glass directly above door handle key end to pry a gap between glass and rubber just enough to slide coat hanger wire in with small hook on end then i manouvered wire hook until i hooked latch arm which i did within 1 minute pulled coathanger wire up and pulled door handle the door opened much to my delight. this was a major sigh of relief after trying for 2 days to get in, and many hours searching the net for a solution which i couldnt find. THIS WORKS 100 percent WITH ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE!!!!!!! any questions email me- jimanddiane@live.co.uk

SOURCE: 06 Silverado tailgate stuck closed

You should be able to get in between the fender and tailgate with a long screwdriver or piece of flat metal and push the catch back into the tailgate. Then pull the handle to release the other side and the gate should open. Hope this helps.

Does the 2009 CR-V have a door jamb sensor for the tailgate? Tailgate light is on, on dash. Doors won't lock with FOB or while moving. Tailgate closes, locks and unlocks, it just thinks it's open.


Sounds like a bad switch on the tailgate. Open your tailgate and look for a switch. When you find it...press it in completely and see if the sensor light goes off. If so, replace it.

Tailgate won't open


is this a RKE FOB only statement, and no keys tried?

id remove the inside tail gate, panel.
the lever to the lock is there. move the lock by hand iniside, i bet it opens now.


on most cars there is a child lock feature, its covered in the operators guide the fact there. read that. first.

wits end.?
id remove the inside tail gate, panel.
the lever to the lock is there. move the lock by hand inside, i bet it opens now.
