when you try to open it, do you feel the switch click? do you hear any noise?

 

are you able to force it open from the inside (I believe there is a handle in the boot somewhere?

hi there is no noise from the switch but you can feel it and i did remove it and checked the switch was letting currant past when operated and it did, there was no handle on the inside but i have fitted a cable to the catch so for te monment i can open it from inside.thank you for your thoughts  cheers dave

In that case, it might be a catch issue.

 

Are you able to force the boot open (not sure if the SMAX has an inside handle for emergency release?)

stokerfatlad

hi the catch is working ok and the s-max has,nt got a handle inside the boot but i agree they should have one

i have decided to try a new micro swicth on the handle as mine may not give the correct volts i let you no how i get on it may take a week as iam in germany for a week

cheers
