Sorry if this has been asked before. My boot has stopped opening on my zafira. I have bought a new silver strip that houses the “handle” and that is definitely ok as when i press the button im getting continuity on my multimeter. I have purchased a new actual locking mechanism too. The three wires going to the locking mechanism iam getting voltage to. (Brown - 0v, brown/brown white - 0v and blue - 12v). All the fuses are ok. Ive even changed the actual plug on the feed to the locking mechanism too. Im not a mechanic and havent got a clue about cars but iam an electrician. The central locking, both through the key and with the button on the dashboard works fine. Ive even cleaned the little red button on the boot too incase dirt was in it. All contacts seem to be making and breaking just fine. Im completely out of ideas.

i hope ive explained properly and havent sounded stupid!! Haha. Any help would be appreciated!! Thank you.

You may be getting voltage but not enough current to operate the mechanism.

Pull back the rubber boot going from the body to the hatch and look for broken or damaged wiring.
