Thanks for trying that.Professor1999 wrote: ↑Fri Aug 24, 2018 1:05 pmTried this on mine and found same thing ie long press on fob boot opens but long press again and it will only close if you are close to car. Perhaps a safety feature to reduce chance of closing boot when someone underneath ?steve1k wrote: ↑Thu Aug 23, 2018 8:03 pmbeen to dealers today for first oil change. while there asked them to check the boot open and closure.Jonnoa wrote: ↑Fri Oct 13, 2017 2:45 pmThe only problem I have had is sometime it will not closes on the remote despite the lights flash so it is getting a signal. Sometimes it can be 2-3 days of not working then everything is ok for several weeks, have tested with all remotes as does the same with all of them so it is not a remote issue.
Have not got to the bottom of it yet.
The problem i am having is if the keys are in my pocket and the boot opening button on the fob gets pressed while im away from the car, like the other day i was in the house and the fob got pressed it opened the boot but unknown to me till i happend to look out of the bedroom window and saw it was open. so i tried to close the boot from the bedroom window and it would not close.
this has append a few time and the only way to get the boot to close is virtually stand next to the boot and press the button on the fob. which is defeating the object might as well press the button on the boot.
While at the dealers got the technician to try it, we stood in the show room about 15 meters away and the boot opened then told him to try closing it and it wouldn't close we had to go out to the car and virtually stand next to the car then it would close. So he checked the instruction manual it says should work up to 30 meter away if not could need new battery, so he changed battery tried again and still wouldn't close from inside the show room.
so problem still not fixed going to have to wait now while he contacts tech support to see if there is a solution to this.
Wounded if anyone has had same issue and it got fixed, or could someone try opening and closing their boot from some distance see if theirs works and let me know, if it does i got some ammo when i return to dealers.
The main doors work ok they open and close from a distance its just the boot has a problem.
just seems pointless it can open from a longer distance manual says 30 meters but only close when closer. Few times now my boot has been opened without me knowing while fob in my pocket and iv been inside the house only lucky nothing been stolen out of the boot or car, or even the motor stolen this needs sorting.
