Re: laguna tailgate

Presuming you have unlocked all the doors by pressing the unlock button twice on the card it will probably be the microswitch on the tailgate itself. The Renault badge directly above has a habit of leaking water through the mounts when it rains, you can guess where the water drips!

Althought I haven't tried myself I am told the switch is removeable from the outside. Also note that there are two of them, the other is to open the glass part of the tailgate. They are available from Renault for around 35 mark.

While you're at it silicone seal the badge mounts to prevent a reocurrence.
