Sorry mate but I don't really understand what you're asking? Are you saying the boot won't open?

First place to start is the fuse, after that if there is no signs of breaks in the wires it's probable that the boot lock mechanism is faulty. Does your car have remote central locking?

My fiesta doesn't have remote central locking. Boot opens with key but nothing happens when boot release button is pressed. The button aluminates when lights are on so guessing it has power. Was wondering if it may be the switch itself just finding it hard to diagnose
