dont know if its the same as my EX mondeo ,but I had the same problem it was worn/dirty contact on the switch....new switch fixed the problem

hope that helps,but if i am wrong Ime sure one of the "car guys" on here will put you right

Hi,

in my Y plate fiesta mk5 the boot release would never work unless the engine was switched off. is this normal?

yeah same as in my mk5 Fiesta, to start with i thought it was just not working but its only when the engine is off, this may just be happening to you but you dont realise it!

I'll give it a go. I'll be selling mine soon, to trade for a Focus. And I want there to be as few excuses as possible for haggling the price down! :lol:

So service, mot + tax to do, minor touch ups, renewing the "ford" badges which have faded, replacing cracked rear cluster etc... just little things that complete it really.

Hi All,

As you described this is correct operation as it prevents the boot accidently opening whilst driving along, and mother in law falling out. :blink:

It also stops anybody opening your boot when you are stopped a traffic lights and nicking your stuff.

I imagine if they are in your car to press the boot release the contents of your boot are the least of your worries :D
