Re: Multiplex Module-- Boot/tailgate release button not working
My Interior multiplex module was damaged after jump starting the car as I had not used it for a few months,there is no fuse protection for the multiplex module there must have been a surge.
As it was only my tailgate lock that was affected and I was quoted +€400 to replace it, I decided to run a new 12V feed from the cigar lighter direct to a new 12V switch which I managed to click into the existing tailgate switch.
The tailgate now opens but I need to insert the key card into the slot before it will open.On leaving the car the tailgate opens until the car is locked .I could have spent more time looking for a feed which operates with the key card but it's fine the way it is.
I took a local Earth from the tailgate.
cost about €10 compared to €400+
You have a slightly more serious problem with the window/door
Are you sure it's the multiplex module? have you jump started the car recently?
I have exactly the same problem and my car has failed it's MOT because the boot will not open. Please could you tell me how you created the new feed. It seems very clever, but I have no idea where to start. I have the Haynes manual with the wire diagrams but that's about it.
Thank you very much.
