Hands free trunk open/close

2022 X6 M50i

Can’t seem to get this to work. I’m tech savvy and watched YouTube videos on it and no luck. Anyone reporting issues? Is there an on/off setting I am missing?

there is no setting to enable.

do you have your key fob on you?

did you option the tow hitch? If so, hands-free kick-to-open feature is removed.

also, you inquired on this issue with another thread last month. why the new, separate thread?

I was told to make a quick kick in and back.

I find it doesn't work reliably.

The funny thing is when working on the car if something happens to swing in that area I've had the trunk open.

I certainly won't miss it w/the hitch.

Do you have tow package?
If you do, you don't have the trunk comfort access.

There's a setting to be activated in Idrive in order to activate the hand free trunk open/close:

CAR
Settings
Door / Vehicle Access
Tailgate
Select the feature open and close with the foot

There is a “sweet spot” I do more of a sweep motion. Mine works reliably and I also have a stealth hitch so I coded back the kto.
