Tailgate lock problems

Not sure if this is the case with your car, but...
if the lock is not easily removed (as in the case of an Espace) a liberal spray of WD40 (other water dispersing sprays are available ) around the lock/handle on the outside of the car with the boot open, leave for a minute or two, close the boot, spray again, wait again, then try the central locking system a couple of times.
Currently in B Boy's garage:
Renault Espace III '97 2.2d
