Replacement 147 arrived - boot light not working
Finally took delivery of a replacement 147 from auto-italia during the week. I handed back the 147 Selespeed and demanded a manual version. So now I have a Fire Black 5-door with grey leather and 17" sports with Bose. One minor problem - the boot light doesnt come on. I have checked that it's in the correct position(i.e. middle setting), checked the bulb and all ok. Checked the voltage from the terminal with the boot open and only getting about 12mV? Is there a sensor somewhere that I could check (to tell it the boot IS open)? Anyone experienced the same problem? The car itself is a real stunner and has turned alot of heads..Didnt think alot of their preparation of the car either, several grease marks on the leather, couple of scratches and some wax still on the door.
I never thought I'd get away with it being electrically problem free though
