Welcome Russ

did you just get the car? and do you have a owners manual for it? are you saying it doesnt close at all or just doesnt close using the one touch feature?

I believe what that guy is offering is a one touch switch. What you are speaking of is the convenience closing feature in which bmw did offer on the later models... once they came up with a way to make it safe. It can also be operated from the key fob away from the car (later models). The programming for this feature is within the control module.
