Closing boot with key MY2019

Post by Bruce287 » Sun Jun 09, 2019 9:15 pm

Have you tried it standing closer to the car? Only reason I ask is that a previous thread mentioned you could unlock and open from some distance away. But to close the boot you need to be a lot closer, for 2018 onwards models.

Just tried it on my 2019 R Line 230 and it works, you do have to press and hold the boot opening and close button but it opens on the button and closes on the button.

It’s the non allspace version.

Tried it again today. Seems a bit temperamental. Worked last night after I asked for advice...and seems ok today hmmm

You do have to be within 6 feet for it to work i have found, any further away and it seemed to sometimes work and sometimes not.

Mine has never not worked. I can open/close from inside my house and have also done it at some distance without issues. Maybe it could be affected by signal interference?
