I have a 2005 20 litre and have had an issue with the boot release on the drivers door ( the remote works fine).

It started with an intermittent then stopped working all together.

Thought it must be the switch so replaced that and it still doesn't work . Checked the replacement and old switch with a meter and both seem to be fine only 4 terminals are in use 2 are for the light, the other two just go to a switch. I assume pushing the switch just makes the circuit to activate the lock.

Given the boot lock works fine on the remote I can't see its that.

I cant see a thread with half an issue like this most relate to total failure

Am I missing something stupid?:confused:

Only think I can come up with is checking the wiring to the switch. Is it getting the power it needs to send to the solenoid.

Do you hear the solenoid/motor actuate when you press the button inside the car? I may be wrong, but isn't there a cable that physically pulls the latch open? I might be confused with the fuel door. Anyway, if you hear the mechanism actuate when pressing the button then I'd concentrate on the latch area to see why it's not translating.
