Alarm arming, and boot wont open, only in cold / wet conditions
This is the 3rd winter I have been having this problem and its been driving me nuts! It seems to be at its worst when its cold or wet. I don't know if its related by I seem to get a lot of internal mist / frost.
It started out that I couldn't access my boot, the external release buttons doesn't seem to engage whatever it needs to to pop the catch. This seems more electronic than mechanical in nature.
Also whenever I close a door, the alarm arms itself and the indicators blink and the red LED on the dash flashes. This is when I am getting in / out.
Obviously there's some kind of issues with the electronics somewhere, so anyone had similar issues, and also, is there some kind of manual boot release so I can at least get in when I need to? (I have 2 kids, and hauling the shopping in via the rear doors is a pain)
Cheers in advance
