These 'clever' modern door locks are a common failure point on many cars I've had. Grr... My boot light has never worked and I really need to look at it. Gotta be the boot lock switch. Grr again..

That's me too. I've just found a second hand one on fleabay for 20 quid. Going to swap it this weekend. Will let you know if that sorts it.

Apparently there are 2 micro switches inside and they fail often all you do is put a piece of wire from one to the other to fix it.

Yep, you can do that too from what I hear. I tend to really suck with 'simple' bodges like that though. The switch was cheap so thought I'd just replace it.
