Hi - never had a problem opening the tailgate of my hatchback by dash switch, keyfob or the rubber switch under the tailgate its self.
The other day I left my car with the lights on for a couple of days and completely drained the battery.
Amongst other things like radio code and temp reading...
I've grown a little tired of having to pull my key out every time I want to open the hatch on my 98 mondeo estate.
Now I've found this guide to make an internal switch for it, but I've ran into some problems. Where exactly is the locking/alarm module located?
The car is a left hand...
This appears to be a very common problem, especially for those who have facelift (53-07) cars without the key barrel fitted!
Problem: Boot is closed and cannot be opened via remote or dash release.
Cause: Faulty boot release motor, sticky latch, bad connections or most likely the drivers door...
