Basically the electric boot release button situated under the rear licence plate light on my boot has stopped working, at the same time the release button on my key-fob stopped. The only way i can open the boot now is by using the key in the lock.
I have scoured this and other forums and none of the other symptoms and diagnostics seem to match. For example, the lock barrel on the boot only half turns to un-lock, thus hasn't been set to the wrong position.
My car is a 2001 325 convertible. There is no boot release in the cabin, only on the boot and key fob.
Has anyone else had this problem where both releases stop at the same time? I am thinking that it may be the release mechanism housed within the boot lid, i would love to hear if someone has replaced this with success.
