The book is a bit vague on unlocking the boot. It seems to need two pushes to unlock from locked, how do you unlock it with the engine running?

I've unlocked it sometimes with the door button, then other times I need to switch the car off and it unlocks as soon as the car is off.
Yet another quest that Vauxhall will clarify for you since the forum might not be able to help you in as we could give you the wrong information

They probably would. It's not a dpf issue, so thought you'd be enough with happy with that! 


You raise a good point, I think I will just go in and ask rather than expect a people to answer here.
Can I ask you a question are you an engineer by trade or a retired one

To be honest I also find opening the boot a bit if a lottery.

It either does or doesn't and yes its a real pain in the arse to open if you stop to let someone out and they need to get something from the boot. It's not the first time I had to switch the car off and take the key out to open.

The one thing I will say is it defiantly needs to have the handbrake on before it will open. That would be the anti theft feature. Good luck to them trying to open it because most of the time I can't.

The only thing I have had to do is switch off but I have never had to take the key out or put the hand break on , I wonder if my car was made with a absent minded Korean

Design engineer for the high voltage industry, more than just design really, site work, commission, repair, demonstrate, fault diagnosis.


Working on cars is my weekend/evening hobby. More than happy to take any of my cars to pieces and and fix/upgrade parts. Things that dont work, or I dont understand annoy me.
Thank you for your answer, that helps me understand you
and how your mind works

It depends on how you lock the car. If you push the remote once (to lock the car) the boot will only need one push to open it. If you push the remote twice (once to lock the car the second to put the dead locks on) it will need pushing twice to open the boot. The handbreak has to be on or if like mine an auto it needs to be in park
