    Tailgate is powered by a hydraulic pump which is located in boot under spare wheel right hand side enclosed in a black plastic case . Sponge cover was saturated in water and hydraulic fluid was low removed motor and sponge cover dried out and cleaned motor filled small hydraulic tank with fluid now works perfectly .

Look for a relay in the trunk close to the left tail lite, that should take care of the problem

Problem with boot lock on Astra 5 door estate 2006


If there isn't an emergency "lock knackered" panel in the tailgate trim, you will probably have to force the trim panel off. These are usually only fastened by plastic pop studs, so you should be able to do it without damaging the panel, although you may need to get replacement studs.

When the tailgate is fully closed, is it actually properly latched down? Try pushing down firmly on the tailgate when it's closed just to be certain as it's possible that the latch is sitting half open at the moment.

I think someone closed my liftgate manually. It will open and close but not latch.


Sounds like the lift gate latch has gone bad, its a liitle bit of a project to replace but can be done. Remove the tailgate lining and its a few screws and rivits.
Happy motoring!

Have you tried replacing the batteries in the key fobs? They are usually only good for a year or two, depending on usage.

2001 Mercedes 430 Doors won't lock-trunk won't unlock--OBDII reads 888 Sounds like fuse. Can you help?


Hi, if all of the locks on your Mercedes fail to open (or close) first check your key fob to make certain that its battery is working. Replace the worn out battery, if necessary. If key fob is working, you may have a faulty key fob, which can be repaired or replaced by taking it to your dealer.
If just one lock won't open on your Mercedes, then the problem may rest with broken wiring, a bad solenoid, or perhaps with a blown fuse. Check your fuse box first to determine if a blown fuse is keeping the lock from working. If so, replace the fuse.
You likely have a shorted door lock actuator, which you can replace with a new unit for the lock that is not working. If a door unlocks, but will not lock again, then replace the door switch.

Besides there is not OBD II 888 code, i have never heard or seen it before...

Mercedes estate automatic rear load cover


I had this problem with my E280 CDI (2007)
I coincidentally charged the battery and it now works. This may be nothing to do with it but the MB service dept did msay that some functions fail before others if the battery is flat.
