hmm i tried checking today. I can see the solenoid is working but not everytime i lock the boot.. sound like a loose connection i suppose. i tried unplugging the wires from the locking mechanism and the plugged back in but still seems inconsistent.

Could be the solenoid motor itself is duff. Have you tried spraying it with WD40 or the like. I have seen them suffer from water ingress.

I also had a boot problem and followed a bit of advice in this post.

The boot wouldn't open, so I put the rear seats down, climbed in and opened it by sliding the white piece of plastic in the boot mechanism to the left.

After spraying a bit of WD40 over the working parts it seems to be OK for the minute.
