As said before , the boot release switch on the outside is a common source of problems on the earlier Lag II tourers.
Water gets in and contacts corrode, causing intermittant, non-existant opening or strange faults. Depending on severity of problem you could experience any of these.
As also suggested removing the switch and cleaning contacts with wet/dry and spraying with wd40 or silicone oil etc ( cannot be insulative - as contacts wont make a circuit) usually works. Failing that a new switch - apparently on later models there is a "mod" out which prevents this problem..
