Default Is this supposed to happen?

Just noticed this :

1 - lock car with remote;
2 - try to open locked boot;
3 - open car with remote;
4 - boot opens with the other doors.


or,

1 - lock car with remote;
2 - leave boot alone (do not try to open);
3 - open car with remote;
4 - only car doors open - boot remains locked.

Is this 'normal' - is this a 'feature' or is the boot buggered?

Dont know but on mine...if the car is running you cant open the boot without first opening the drivers door....its either fooked or its some kind of anti-empty my boot-device..you know for when your at lights etc....although i suppose you have to be really thick to not notice someone open your boot when ur in the car......

On our 307 the boot will not open if the engine is on, it's an anti theft idea to stop people from opening your boot at traffic lights etc. We have to either switch off the ignition or open the drivers door to allow the boot to be opened.

I've got the two button key fob - I wonder if it is something to do with the GLX feature described as "automatic open/close boot lid".

Prior to yesterday, I never 'checked' the boot when leaving the car - so as far as I know, it's always done it.

I suppose when your returning to the car with the weekly shop that it might be useful to have the boot spring open without having to use the handle. Dunno...

Clanless,

Mine is doing the same.
I think the button on the boot is sticking when you press it.
When you unlock the doors, the boot opens because the button is sticking in the unlock position.
I'm going to try some WD40 on it to see if that helps.

Ta Janner.

As your car does the same - I'm thinking that this is normal.

I suspect its not the handle sticking as I can make the boot open or close according to the sequence in my original post. I stood in the driveway for a good 5 minutes trying each combination of steps and each time the boot opened when expected.

I will give it a squirt of wd40 a like though.

Well mine wasn't doing it until recently.
I have a habbit of checking the doors and the boot when I lock it up.
I came back to the car the other day, and while walking up to it I pressed the unlock button on the key, and the boot popped open.
If this is a feature I think it's pretty stupid. If I hadn't noticed the boot had opened, I would have driven off with it open.

Next time you lock the car, don't try the boot - then unlock with the remote and see if the boot pops open. I've just checked mine and all is back to normal as I didn't check the boot after locking.
