Question Hatch opening

Hi all. Just swapped the Qubo for a 500 1.4 sport. good fun so far. A quick question, the only way I can open the hatch is with the remote. Should I be able to open the hatch with the finger switch under the numberplate light? If so I think it's likely to be failue at the point where the cables flex between body and hatch, or the switch itself.

Yes, provided the doors are unlocked.

Re: Hatch opening

The boot switch, earth's the signal cable that connects to the bcm(using the number plate lights earth wire) that sends a signal to the lock servo to open, so back and forth if you earth the right wire out of the 3 going to the number plate lights it should trip the boot lid open, if that works then you know it's the switch if not it's the hatch wiring.
