    Default Signum Boot Lock

    Well ours decided to die on us but got in through the inside with the screwdriver trick and then it started working again then stopped so got a new part. Matt fitted it tonight and it still won't open, any suggestions?

    Has he fitted it correctly? does it unlock from the door switch and the key? have you tried both?

    When you open the drivers door nothing like normal, open all the doors the boot pops open but doesn't uncatch so you got to push down on it to shut it. That was the old one, new one mmmm... not sure as I was out when he fixed it last night.

    Ok he says it's doing the same thing with the new one.

    be ready to 'catch' it as it pops and open it fully. then close it again, lock car, and try again. my signum done the same but fixed itself by doing this...

    When you unlock all the doors the number plate lights come on, this then should allow you to open the boot as its unlocked - not pop open - fairly sure you know this already. Maybe its the actual lock in the boot and not the microswitch in the handle. I take it that its well greased?

    Sorted cheers, was the switch/handle whatever it is the button thing not contacting. So now we have a brand new boot catch no longer needed!

    That's quite common on signums. Thought that was what you had already replaced

    We'd done the bit that looks like this not the bit under the rubber handle bit!
