Hello, welcome. My name isXXXXX will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

From what you are describing this issue is consistent with a failed lock actuator for the boot that is resulting in the boot lid not opening.You can try disconnecting the battery for about 5 minutes and the actuator might work again to get the boot open,however the actuator will need to be replaced.

Many thanks for your help. I managed to get the boot lid open eventually only to find a large box had been placed in the boot and had jammed the actuator. !!!!!
