How can i get my trunk lid soft close to work? on 2001 BMW 740iL

1. Trunk lid open light comes on, I close it manually now. I don't like doing that because it seems like it takes a lot of force to close it.
2. Battery was disconnected at body repair shop. I tried disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it. Any suggestions?

Check electrical connections in trunk. Maybe body shop missed or didn't get it plugged into the connector all the way.
