Re: boot wont

I have had this problem and repaired it, I would suggest that you do as Ralph says and remove the trim then release the switch and carefully push it forward, from outside the car the wires can be disconnected. the switch is in two parts open it up and you will see the electrical contacts. When I opened mine the contacts were a green colour and no contact was being made.

Carefully clean these contacts put the two parts back together, you should find that the door lock now works.

Something I learned from this forum is that this particular switch is prone to have water ingress so before replacing the switch put some clear sealant around the switch edges and then replace it. I have had no problems with it since.

Good luck
