Boot Lid Alarm


Recommended Posts

My car is a 2007 XF and when the car is locked and the alarm is on I used to be able to open the boot lid without the alarm going off and then close it to reset the alarm. Now the alarm goes off when I open the lid and I have to stop it using the key fob. Does anybody have any experience of this and what might be causing it? I wondered if it might be something to do with the wires in the loom going from the car to the boot, possibly broken but not sure!

My XK key fob has a button for opening the tailgate.

When I press the button it unlocks the boot, and I can open it without the alarm going off.

When I close it again the indicators flash once to tell me that it is closed and the alarm is set again.

I think that my XF was the same, if my memory serves me correctly.

As you say, I would suspect that the wiring may be the problem, probably at a point where it flexes when the boot is opened and closed.
