My 2011 Ford Mondeo boot button isn't working, but will open on the key fob remote. Ford have tried a new micro switch but it isn't that. They say it needs further investigation but that could be an expensive solution just for a boot to open with the button.
The lock servo works, so it isn't that, but the button it not talking to the lock servo. Possibly not connected properly or properly earthed. Call in a local car electrical specialist.
