Could be a lot of problems.

#1 if you only have 1 partially working keyfob, you NEED to buy a new keyfob from the dealer, $160 is a good price, if they quote you higher, shop it around.

#2 you cannot open the trunk manually unless both doors are unlocked/the car is fully unlocked.

#3 the vert distance for the keyfobs is very short, hold the tip of the key to your chin and you can double the key distance when you lock or unlock the car.

#4 visit www.bmwgm5.com for a lesson in all things central locking.

#5 suggest you read your owners manual fully regarding locking system. Some trunks the key can turn close to 180 degrees and be put into a valet mode. You need to understand this and see if your car supports this.

#6 many verts have an electrical lock for the glovebox and the key has 3 positions. You can lock the glovebox and force the car into valet mode.
