Also check that there is no water in the switch area underneath the rubber cover.

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?

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?)

How did they get the boot open, given that it was locked shut?
