Default Boot electrical problems

Hi all, hope someone can help with my problem.

I fitted the boot module to my 2012 XC70 about 18 months ago and no problems for about 16 months then I had to take it out because it melted and was affecting the central locking system.now Iím having no end of problems, the boot wouldnít open from the boot, the fob or the button in the car. I took it to a Volvo specialist near me and they took the boot apart but couldnít find the problem but now Iíve gone from a boot that wonít open to a boot that wonít shut! Iíve got the boot panels off and the boot button, fob and car button all seem to work but now the boot close button isnít working and the lock mechanism seems to be stuck in the boot locked position.

So Iím £100 down, have a car I canít drive because the boot isnít shut and still have no idea as to what the problem is. Itís booked into an auto-electrician next Thursday (earliest he can fit in)

Anybody else had this problem or know if a cure?

Thanks in advance for any help!

John

Have you contacted Evgeny who supplied the module to ask him if he can assist with a diagnosis based on the fact that it was his module that failed originally. This is a little worrying for me as I have that hard wired module installed in my XC70.

I think Evgeny got the modules from a friend who originally did the design so contacting him may be of no use. Your best bet would be the auto electrician who can check the wiring going to the boot lock.

I have it booked into an auto electrician next Thursday to have a look. Iíd be very careful of the modules, the one I took out had melted inside the protective foam and was very hot even when Iíd spent 10 minutes dismantling the boot to get to it.

Thought Iíd bump this one more time, Iíve had the lock replaced in the boot but it hasnít solved the problem. Itís going to another Volvo place on Tuesday, hopefully someone will find out whatís going on.

Just had something similar with my 2011 v70, issues with boot lock only open on key fob and button on dash. The boot lid then wouldnít catch in the closed position and would reopen automatically.
They found that some of the pins in the wiring loom connector had corroded (water damage / leak) so the wiring loom needed to be partially replaced but it had shorted out the lock motor in the process so that also needed replacing.
