Vauxhall corsa boot won't open

The electronics in the key aren't working so I have to use central locking manually by putting the key in the driver door. Usually this opens the boot as well, but another member of the family opened the boot directly with the key instead of unlocking the whole car. This has knocked the boot off the central locking system. We've done it before and there is some sort of combination of locking and unlocking the doors and the boot which gets it back onto the system, but I can't remember what it is - we did it by accident last time. It's not a crucial problem, but if anyone knows how to do it, please let me know... if I work it out in the meantime, I will post on here in case it helps anyone else in the future! Thanks, in advance, for your help.

SOURCE: Central locking

Without diagnosing this problem myself, the possible causes are MANY!
Best solution is take the vehicle into a Hyundai Dealership and have it diagnosed/troubleshot by a qualified technician.

SOURCE: BMW 328i touring tailgate not opening

Have had this problem. Solve it by reading the owner's handbook, which gives clear instructions. Do not use the key in the tailgate door before reading the instructions.

The boot does not unlock when I activate the central locking system can anyone help me overcome this problem my car is a Vauxhall Corsa active 1.4 on a 62 plate

Got the right button?
The boot latch may be a separate button on the remote.

Failing that check the tailgate lock relay (K24f) - temp swap with K24d (deadlock relay) should work.

If that is not it, it may be a defective microswitch on the tailgate handle.
