Help roof or boot want open diagnostic says parking sensor


I can't imagine that it's the brake sensor that's causing your roof and boot not to open... the diagnostic check must be picking up a separate fault. I think the most likely cause of your fault is that the wiring loom on the left side in your boot has become damaged and has some split wires. You'll either need to fix or replace the loom. The cogs in the roof motors can also wear on these, but the loom fault is pretty common and the most likely cause. You'll probably need to take it to a Vauxhall specialist for a repair. Hope this helps. Bob
