Hmmm 147 bizarre bootlock problem

I've finally fixed my doorhandle (How to remove 147 doorcard? Very stuck :(); many thanks to JamesG and JB76.

I've got an odd problem with my bootlock (what is it with my car and doors/openings at the moment??!!). The bootlock doesn't undo from the remote control. This, in itself, isn't such a strange thing but the symptoms suggest otherwise:
  • When the remote button for the boot is pressed, the indicators flash as if it is working. The remote is working for the main passenger doors lock and unlock.
  • The button in the cockpit for opening the bootlock works fine.
This suggests:
  1. The remote is working.
  2. The remote signal for the bootlock is recieved and understood.
  3. The bootlock electronic release is working.
But the system as a whole isn't working. Even more strange is the fact that this problem is intermittant, the boot hatch remote stopped working for 2 or 3 weeks over Christmas and then started again, last week it stopped working and hasn't since!

Any suggestions?

The exact same thing happened to my 147, then it just suddenly started working again.

Who knows why..............
