    Sounds like the boot lock catch/ solenoid is stuck or broken keeping the catch in the open position?

    Yep, I have just had the same fault, had to tie down the lid to get back home. I have taken the electronic bit off the lock itself, this allows the catch to operate mechanically and close the boot. You need to make sure you leave the trim unclipped, because you have to unlock the boot manually by tripping the lever on the inside of the catch which means accessing via the inside of the boot, bit of a pain, but at least you can get the boot closed until it is repaired. I can't get the switch to peices to see if something is broken, thought it was just stuck, but that hasn't worked, going to have to check outsome prices.
