If electrical connections to the rear gate is not accidentally disconnected, you may have burnt out the lock-selonoid on the rear gate lock. It costs only $10 to $20 retail installed. I don't think your problem is major.

Hi I got c200 and the boot dont want to open whit a remote

Let's break it down - is the remote working on the other functions such as door unlock? If so then the battery & transmit function is good. Could still be a faulty boot unlock button on the remote. Now examine the boot latch mechanism, is there an remote unlock button in the car? Does this function? IF we can determine where the fault lies, we can troubleshoot further. Good luck.

Hi, I have a Peugeot 407 sw ... Recently when I press the keyfob to open the vehicle, the rear glass part of the tail gate opens. This has progressed to happen each and every time I open the vehicle now....

Its likely in the mechanism for the rear lock that is out of position and when the lock is opened with the remote is engaging the window mechanism.

Driver side buttons for passenger windows doesn't work after changing battery.

when you change the battery you must reinitialize all the windows, sunroof and rear gate. you must operate each window from its own button, holding it to a count of 4 at the very bottom and very top. for the sunroof you must hold the button in the close position and let the roof go thru its complete cycle. the rear gate must be opened manually and closed by pushing close button on gate.

2003 Saturn Vue rear liftgate won't open

The easy part is you just need the latch for the liftgate. The hard part is getting to it and opening the liftgate to replace the latch. You should be able to pull the liftgate trim off most of the way with the gate closed and try to manually actuate the latch to open the gate. You may have to go so far as breaking the latch from the inside to open the gate and then replace your latch.
