This is normally caused by the tailgate release microswitch jammed in, once you have opened it does the boot lid then open & close as normal?

Long time separated, I know, but XM had the option of whether the boot lock was operated by the central locking, or not.
This could allow the boot to remain locked while the car was being driven (or in standstill traffic), even though the doors were not locked.
The choice was made by the way the key was turned before removing it from the boot lock. Details in the owner's handbook.
May not be relevant to C2, or might be an electronic choice.
