Adding auto close trunk F10

Dear F1X-ers,

Is it possible to add the close function on my trunk of my F10. If it is possible I want the button where I can push on to close it. What do I have to order? Do I have to reprogram the car?

Thanks.

Was trying to cut back so I didn't get too much crap from my wife. When it arrived, she asked why I didn't order it -- can't win!

This can be coded but only if you already have the power trunk lid.

I think you misunderstood the original post. He is asking if it is possible to retrofit the power trunk.

I did slightly but answered the second part. As for retrofitting I am sure it is possible but the parts list would not be cheap. If anyone has retrofitted the motor, wiring, and buttons on the trunk please feel free to chime in. 😄

It can be retrofitted but would require both trunk openers, control module & associated wiring which you would probably have to build yourself as it wouldn't be available separately

Hello all,

I have all the parts here but don't know how to install it. Does anyone has the installation instruction for this retrofit? Mine is f10.
Thank you

little off topic but i have to say that we don't value options until we have to live without them.
Little things that are installed from factory are so helpful, that when i get in the car that option installed.
After have my f10 coded, i can now close and open trunk with a remote or button under dash.
Coding works wonders with our cars.
If i were you, i would probably look at local shops for totaled F10 that had power trunk, and buy the whole lot of parts. its cheaper than dealer!!!
just a thought!!

Can you guys post the parts list. I'm starting to get the parts and want to make sure I'm getting everything to try and retrofit this.

Thanks

Anyone know where to install Control unit tailgate lift? I can not find the connector ( My car already has the trunk opener. I also can not find the control box )
