The linkage on the handle must be loose or broken.

Lightbulb

for E39 up to 6/1998, there is a TSB(Technical Service Bulletin) that mentions a faulty liftgate actuator causing the lock to be inoperative.

That would be a good place to start troubleshooting.

TIP: if in your search it does prove that the lock actuator is a fault, make sure you get a replacement that was manufactured after 11 May 1998. (Date wil be stamped on the actuator)

I hope that helps :-)
