I just went through this.<br> <br> Open the trunk; look at the inside of the lid.<br> There are two holes, one for each of two <br> mechanisms. You can reset the trunk close<br> with the lower one, and the pop-out handle with<br> the upper one.

Thanks for all the suggestions, unfortunately no joy. However I managed to get in touch with the brilliant Daniel Gillitzer who sent me detailed info.To cut a long story short I pulled the relevant fuse(think it was number 9) waited 10 secs and replaced it. Presto! Apparently it allows itself to reset after any recent problems.<br> Well worth knowing<br> Thanks Daniel and everybody<br> Regards<br> Clive

It is usually the vacum pump that also controls the doors and is located above the rear (drivers) side wheel next to the gas tank. Pulling the fuses is a temporary fix the pump is $600 and usually comes back.
