BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Is this vehicle fitted with a Manual Handbrake or an Electric Handbrake?
Ok so the problem potentially lies with either the Switch or the Control Module.
Have you carried out a diagnositic code read to check for any potential fault codes?
Have you carried out a diagnostic code read?
Ok. Well I would start with a diagnostic does read to see what, if any, potential faults are withing the control module.
As I said previously the fault will no doubt lie with either the module or the switch or possible the wiring between the two.
I'm not sure if there is an emergency release on these vehicles. I know on an X5 there used to be a relese function behind one of the panels in the boot. Not sure if the same applies to your model.
It may not have an emergency release option.
Have you got AA or RAC cover on your vehicle?
The only other option wouldbe a local garage who may be willing to come out with their diagnostic machine to relaease it for you.
Thats ok Sorry I can't be of any further help.
yes I am here for about half an hour.
