    Hey,

    Ive been having problems with my boot from when i washed it yesterday, When you close it the dash display is still showing that it isnt closed when it is, Are there any common faults which it could be that i can check myself before going to a garage to have it looked at??

    Any help/info would be really appreciated


    Cheers
    Danny

    Is there a sensor or solanoid to detect if the boot is closed or not?

    There is a micro switch built into the lock catch, if yours is an avant you have to buy the whole assembly (like i did) if it's saloon or cab you can buy the micro switch separately if i am reading etka correctly. Take it apart and check the wiring first as it does seem to get water ingress.

    I had the same problem, i used oil on the lock mechanism and have not had the problem since and that was a year ago.
