    Boot lock problem.

    My central locking works fine except for i have to use the key in the boot to open it, even when the rest of the car is unlocked i need the key to open the boot!

    Any ideas what's wrong?

    Is the boot always locked, or is it just not responding to the central locking?
    If it's the latter, you may have a break in the wiring loom where it goes from the roof to the bootlid, top left corner of the tailgate.

    It is always locked, it will only open when the key is in the lock and turned slightly. All the other locks work fine from the remote. I will have a look at the wires later, cheers

    You may still have a broken cable in the loom, worth taking a look.
