you have the exterior trunk lock turned to the right(horizontal position) which makes it in valet mode, meaning you have to unlock the trunk with the key.

do you have the pass through seats? open your arm rest, reach your hand through and pull the glow-in-the-dark handle in the trunk.

this question is for you since you seem to know alot about BMW, on my dash a left indicator signal comes on, and when I went to signal to make a turn it flashed fast, but I want to know if its my bulb or if its a loose wiring because it does it once in awhile.

which flashes fast, the bulb or the green left arrow on the dash?
also do you have a bulb-out warning on the dash(the red car illuminates and stays on during driving with a little red indicator in the shape light near the front of the car)

the green arrow flashes fast on my dash....once in awhile. But then after driving it comes back to normal. Yes is that what it is? Bulb-out warning? I need to replace my bulb then? (the red car illuminates and stays on during driving with a little red indicator in the shape light near the front of the car) that is so correct man! What does it mean time for a new bulb then?

first take out turn signal and make sure the harness is plugged in all the way. if that checks out then its the bulb.
just replace the front turn signal bulb and everything should be fine.

heres the DIY..its for an m3, but its pretty much the same deal.
