trunk problem

Hi all,

For the second day now I am facing the second problem so far with my love..... (159 1.9jts)
I am trying to open the trunk boot from the push button in the inside of the car and as the trunk I can hear its opening the indication on the dashboard display shows nothing(the indication should come on with the push of the button). If I then lift the trunk boot even a little bit up the display shows that the trunk is open... any idea what is doing on, anyone!!!

The micro switch in the boot lid may bee sticking?
Try and clean/grease it?

I think there are previous threads on this, maybe in the
147 lounge...

Brera 3.2 Q4 SV

If it's the same setup as the Brera, I believe the two are not connected. The boot open indicator is triggered by a (magnetic ?) switch, as per Nev's reply.

Only reason I know is because the dealer adjusted / repaced the switch in mine before I took delivery as it was saying the boot was open when it most definately wasn't.
