    Hello friends. The button to open my glovebox does not function and I'm told it's a control unit problem and part is not sold separately. How common is this and any solution if you are familiar with the issue?

    Thanks in advance for the support.

    Some models need engine running to open or ignition on I think

    Some times, using the key fob to lock / unlock the car 3 times will solve issues related to doors, windows or glove box.

    I've had luck with the key fob trick, also you might try turning the power completely off at the battery and reset the entire car.

    Key fob trick unfortunately did not work for me this afternoon. Let's try then the other trick but I beleive my mechanic has tried already resetting by the diagnostic tool.

    I am aware of the emergency pull, we even fabrikated a stronger pull thing but it's annoying to go there when I need sth on a Ferrari.

    You need to find out if power is getting to the glovebox solenoid when you press the switch by probing the wires. If not, then there will be an issue with either the fuse or the relay most likely.
