Opening the Boot Door with the Remote

EcoSport owners are quick to notice that the third button in its remote is left unused. A simple modification, however, will activate this unused button. This modification will enable the remote key to open the boot door.

The hack is pretty simple—just put an eraser on the hollow space under the button!
The whole process will only take a few minutes, and does not require any special equipment.


To open the boot door using the remote key, press unlock first, then press the third button twice (like a double click). This modification is applicable to Trend and Ambiente variants only. There is a different modification for Titanium variants since they are supplied with a different remote (I have yet to make a tutorial for that).
