I can only assume it had seized or something had got in it. Hope this helps.

Hi guys,

sorry for late reply.
my problem turned out to be the cmu just next to glove compartment, had to take glove compartment out and its a black box with a big chip in it and it had a toatsy wee black dot where it was burnt. couldnt see it at first but a friend told me to put board to my nose n sniff for a burnt smell, it worked. orderred a new one from renault(280) who forgot to tell me they have to program it(80) so it was a costly fix and i wasnt even sure if it was going to work. however this worked and i now have a boot working. i hope this helps out alot of people!!!
