    08 insignia saloon.

    Hi guys. I am trying to fix a tailgate unlocking problem on my 08 Insignia. I have replaced the switch and the motor. I have checked and replaced the relevant fuses and still have the problem. I would like to try replacing the relevant relays but cannot find a relay physical layout either on-line or in the Haynes manual. I would really appreciate some help as this is doing my head in. I was an aircraft electrician so am familiar with working on car and bike electrics. Thanks in anticipation, Centaur.

    Welcome. I have no idea, are you saying there is no power getting to the motor? If there is, then it has to me mechanical i.e. there is something seized. I am sure you have more knowledge than me on the subject, but I hope somebody on here will give you some help.

    Thanks, RS but it is not mechanical. I just need the relay locations to allow me to move on with circuit checking.

    Searched the site for everything relevant but no joy. Been offered a reasonable price for the car as it is so that may be hello and goodbye to the Insignia. I shall avoid Vauxhall in the future if something as simple as the physical layout of the relays is a secret! Dealer said he couldn't help but bring it in for them to repair!
