Hey ive been searching mad in the forums for answers but not too clear. Basically whats happening is everytime I start my car the boot pops open, I get out and shut it and it can happen again. Also opened while driving for the first time the other day. I have tried wd40 in all the mechanisms etc, this made the dash button start working again but its back to normal. I have replaced the rubber pressure pad on the boot but it is still playing up. I am also having issues with the central locking along with this, already been locked out car whith engine running while defrosting lol
I have been told to get a new relay for under the dash for the boot and also the central locking... is this one relay or separate? Which one is it?


I am also finding when i start my car it turns over a few seconds then kicks in. It has just been fully serviced new plugs, fuel filter, air filter, oil etc and still doing it

Boot release could be a shory in the wiring inside the umbilical between the car body and the boot.
Water gets in to the central locking motors inside the door and causes intermittent problems too, had this in a MK1 Focus.
