Boot not opening.
« on: 06 June 2023, 17:42:34 »

Just a quick one, the boot on the Elite won't open, everything checks out i.e nos switch fitted  and fuses checked, but no action up the rear end. :o So presuming there must be a duff solenoid lurking somewhere, just need some idea as to where. tia :y

I've temporarily rigged up a pull cord to the manual release, but other than that there's no sign of life by either using the switch or remote, so thinking there's no electrickery somewhere up the lid end :)

Broken wire somewhere around the boot hinge area?

I presume that you've allowed the three to four seconds while holding the button on the dash in.  ???

Broken wire, worth having a look around for. Also yes to waiting 3-4 seconds for the release, my two cop cars are a lot quicker than the Elite for some reason.-

No idea Al, car came from Elite Pete about 10 years ago, and iirc SP30 before that, and up to date no probs with it during my ownership :-\ So I'll break out my best club hammer tomorrow and 'fix it' proper!
