Exclamation Need Help - 650i Convert trunk latch failing

My 650i trunk latch sometimes doesn't unlock. At times, you can hear the latch click twice, sometimes it unlatchs and most times it doesn't. Have to do it several times and the trunk opens.

Is it a fuse or electrical issue?

Start with checking your fuses just to make sure. My guess would be the trunk actuator. Its common for them to fail. Also inspect the latch itself to make sure its not sticking. Grapphite is great for lubricating locks. - Alberta based BMW Community
