I’ve been having this issue for a while now, and wondered if anyone here could shed any insight.
I had a problem where sometimes my boot wouldn’t open. By this I mean I pressed the button underneath the catch and .. nothing happened. I pressed the button on the keys to open the boot and.. nothing happened. I tried to find a manual release inside the car but no luck. I’d either leave it for a while and go back later to find it would open, or manage to pull the rear seats down and get my things from the boot that way.It was very unpredictable but it only happened a couple times over a 6 month period so I didn’t want to have to pay to take it to the garage if it was a glitch. Anyway.. now the only way to open the boot at all is by using the button on the keys, which works every time, but now it also opens whenever it feels like it. When I unlock the car, the boot opens. When I turn off the ignition and pop the key out, the boot opens. Sometimes, I just shut the door and i hear the boot open before I have a chance to lock the car. If the key is in the ignition, or the car is locked, or the engine is running, it doesn’t pop open.
Does anyone know why this is happening? It’s getting really frustrating getting into my car only to have to get back out again because the boot is open. (Sometimes it does it 3 or 4 times in a row so I just stand there having to battle with it to stay shut) This happens pretty much every time I use the car.
Sorry for the long ramble! I wanted to add as much detail as possible haha
