Does the remote unlock work for your doors? I know it sounds simple, but I like to start with easy stuff. I would make sure the key works properly before going more in depth.
Thanks, yes it is that key. The doors open, the boot opens, the windows go up and down if I hold the button, the only thing that doesn't open is the hatch. I have looked for an internal mech to no avail, using your directions I shall have another look. Thanks...

I only have the one key so no option re trying an alternative.
