I have a 99 renault espace alize and when I lock the doors the boot will not lock. I can hear the motor in the boot working but not locking any ideas

Did you try spraying the lock mechanism with WD-40 and locking/unlocking it a few times? Can you see movement in the lock with the boot open while you press lock & unlock?

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ

This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.
