Why doesn't the boot open remotely via the switch on the dash?
A useful reminder from Peter Garton. (May 18)

For the life of me I could not get the boot to open remotely via the dash switch. I tried via the ignition, plusthe switch, but nothing worked, so I got out the last resort action - the handbook! There I saw to my indignation that I did not have the handbrake on! See page 82, Owner's Handbook AKM7144ENG.

I park up in my garage with the car in first gear only and simply forgot that one has to engage the handbrake plus ignition on plus pressing the boot release switch. Must be getting old!

3. Luggage compartment release switch
Press to open luggage compartment. Only operates with the starter switch in position "II" and handbrake on.
