Hello Sputnik,

I too have the active 1.4 Tjet 150. In short. No there isn't a button inside the car. That said, there is a wire that goes to the same block connector for the city mode button. I found this by accident when fitting a Bluetooth hands free kit. I was looking for an ignition live, when I earthed out the said wire, pop and the boot opened.
I have also asked on here if anyone has the switch in their cars, but got no replies.
If the fiat emblem on the boot, which is a push button isn't working, they are cheap to replace.

Every little helps.

Phil

press and hold it for a second as well, it won't work if you quickly push it.

I realise you probably know this but it's worth checking.

Your button itself must be broke then, or the wire has broke somewhere inside the tailgate. The actuator must be ok as it's opening with the key. Strip your tailgate down and take a look. New buttons are readily available from parts world, cheap and good service.

Be good.

Re: Boot opening

You are pushing the tailgate button with the car unlocked first, aren't you?

Re: Boot opening

Not sure if the Bravo has the option to reactive the tailgate release from tailgate switch within the on dash Menu? I know the Stilo did making it a key only operation, but you can reactivate it if you wished.
