Suggested Solution

Try spraying WD40 around button on outside of tailgate this operates a micro switch which in turn opperates a solenoid a common problem with Vectra C as water/salt/muck gets into button sticking micro switch after sprayin thump button on boot with heal of hand after pressing boutton on door, listen for solenoid clicking once open repeatedly opperate button to ensure fixed, or u could try opening manually if it has keyhole on button on boot?

I damaged my tailgate and had to fit a secondhand one of a similar year to my car (2008). Because my tailgate was damaged the button could not open the door since it was jammed. I kept pressing it until the button stopped working or making a sound.

Now with the new door fitted I cannot get the replacement button to work. It is as if something has fused or burned out. I cannot find anything although I have checked all the fused in the car, under bonnet, on side of dashboard and in luggage compartment. I have also disconnected the battery but again made no difference. I have also checked the wiring to the tailgate but cannot find any problem.

My 3rd brake light on the new tailgate is also not working but this may be a different problem?

I would particularly like to know why I have no power to the tailgate lock. Any help greatly appreciated.
