    Central locking not working on Astra mk5

    Central locking not working on Astra Mk5 2005 5 door 1.4

    First my boot wouldn't open so i went to change the fuse for the central locking. Now boot still doesn't open and central does not work at all. I have checked every fuse in the car and there are all fine. Even the button on the dash to lock the doors doesn't work.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Dave

    Does your windscreen washer pump work?, the tailgate and washer bottle are on the same fuse in the engine compartment.

    Hi mate, windscreen washer pump works fine, when the boot was working id just press the button on the back and id hear mechanical noise of the lock opening. But now nothing at all.

    But the washer pump works fine.......

    It's probably the micro switch broken away or needing adjusting in some way

    The switch on my boot went when the car was only 2 years old and needed replaced. Got it done under warranty though.
