Do you have the 'dedicated boot opening' feature in the central display menu set to off?
This function stops the roof mounted button from working - it defaults to on setting after disconnecting battery.
Good Luck :-)
This is the problem, every time i find this topic it seems like no one have the same version as me. I don't have any settings in the dash for this button, i only have the button on the keyfob thats fine, and the ceiling button, that's not working properly. Only settings i can fint is the speed limit adjustment and a few others.
I see in pictures that many alfa 159s have all the buttons working, mine has only two, the parking sensor button, and the boot opener button. As far as i know, when pressing the parking sensor button, this is supposed to have a little red dot when activated? It activates when entering reverse, but not when starting up the car and just pressing the button. don't know if it is supposed to, but i guess so, as the button is pressable and not fixed.
so none of theese two buttons are functioning, and i have no idea hos to fix this. Do i have to remove the console and look for faults, like loose cables/connectors?
I'm also not sure how to remove the console. It is the same as the one in this pic:
