    Hi i was wondering if anyone could help. I have a couple of electrical problems. It started off when my reverse light kept coming on when i was breaking. Also on my dash board it is telling me the boot is open when its shut therefore it is also stopping me from putting my roof down. Is there anyone that can help me out. If so i would be very much grateful

    Thanks in advance
    Gavin

    It sounds as if you have a bad earth in the boot area.

    Check all the connections for tightness and corrosion especially around the battery area if it's in the boot.

    You need to investigate the boot lid to body wiring. Could be frayed wires.
