Question about BMW Cars & Trucks
The fault codes may have to be erased with a scan tool. However, if the fault is not repaired, and the computer deems the fault to be a hard code, it will keep the light on until the repair is made

What you do is:
HOld The handle up while you turn the key to the opening direction, it will feel as though it may bend the key but it will not.
keep pulling the handle until the button pops up it works I did it

you need to take a look at the light sockets in the trunk area.there are NO wires going to the lights like most cars of the time.if you take a close look,you will see that the whole panel where the lights plug in IS the wiring complete with ground.you juat need to unplug each one and scratch all the corrosion off the fixed panel AND the flat prong like connections on the bulb sockets themselves.
every 5 series i have gotten into after being parked for awile had this problem.absolutely no rear lights.and yes,check out the fuse box,but it is most likely this or-
the brake pedal on these cars has a thin plate which the brake light switch/andclutch switch is bolted to.i have also seen in many cases the pedal travelbeing too excessive causing the thin plate to bend slightly causing it not to make contact with the switch,which also won't make the brake light warning lamp come on.but i bet you its those sockets in the trunk.cause if the hot side of one is grounding out-then none of them will work!good luck.

What happens if you turn the VOLUME to MAXIMUM?
If still no sound , then suspect problem with the speaker , connections or wiring
If loud hissing etc. then speakers appear OK so suspect a radio fault
