    Would this be the solenoid? can the boot be opened from inside once the rubber plugged is removed and turned witha screwdriver?

    This happened to my last car which was an astra design, the rear electrical box went. or it could be fuse.

    as above if the windscreen washers do not work either then it's fuse number 8 (red 10A mini blade) under the bonnet if i recall correctly....

    The windscreen washer pump has packed up as well....checked the fuse for the pump and its blown.

    this is common in the cold. I herd from vauxhall that it freezes then pops the fuse because it doesnt come out or something. person said leave 5 min before using the pump when its freezing cold

    So the the chances are that when i replace the blown fuse for the washer pump then the boot will open when the key is pressed.
