    Hello
    I have in manual that my car is equipped in signalisation of open doors or boot. But this sign was never flashed. Guys in Seat service told me, that this indcicator was only in selected versions, and probably my Reference is not equipped in this feature. Are they right ? It sounds improbable for me.

    & Sport....

    That is true about the rear wipers and wash. Clever ;)

    But there is a general design fault or reluctance to get the boot closed. There is a internal handle on the righthand side that you pull the boot down with a wack. If it doesn't wack enough then it bounces back open. Running your hand over the edge of the side of the boot you can tell that it's not shut or you just get into the car to go off and the light is on. It can drive you mad first off all.

    The rubber around the lip of the boot may given in, in due time to allow the boot to close more easily. I think mine has improved in a year. You can also adjust where the catch hits the lock and this would help. I haven't bothered on the basis of wait and see.

    So in someways not having the light is a god send in that your not jumping in and out of the car to check the boot until you master shutting it.

    Additional info:
    With the small MFD (multi function display) in the instruments panel (coming with CD1/CD2) only up to model year 2005 included boot lock signal ...
    my2006 only flashes on open doors but not on trunc.

    ... which was truly understood. :) ... only my posting wasn't precise enough. :whistle:

    But you mentioned, that Stylance would have the option (and that's why I added the info).
    This in fact isn't true any more for the mentioned setup:
    Stylance my2006 combined with small MFD won't have the boot lock signal any more ... like mine, as Sport Edition is based upon Stylance.
