Hello ... hope you can help.

I was opening the boot of my VX this morning using the remote on the car key but for what ever reason, it is just clicking but the boot does not release. I tried using the button in the glove compartment box and it does the same thing. VXS does not have a boot lock where I can insert my keys to manually open the boot.

To make the situation worst, I have an LPG gas tank so I cannot access the bootfrom the back seat.

Pls help ....

Thanks.
Louie

Try pushing down on the boot at the same time as pressing the button.

Thanks for all your reply ...

I tried pushing the boot up and down while pressing the button on the remote key but seems to be not working : -(

There is no manual release for the boot at the back. The release in there is for the fuel.

I went to the mechanic yesterday and even him can't figure out an easy way to do this ...

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks again ...
Louie

Does the solenoid make any sound when you press the release button?

If it isnt making any noise, then you might have an electrical fault, check fuses etc.

You may be able to get it to trigger (if this is the problem) by applying 12v to the appropriate place in the loom.... (not that I know where that is!)

Have you spoken to a panel beater? No doubt they would have encountered a problem such as this before
