Laguna 2 phase 2 Estate tail gate wont lock
The tail gate on my 2006 Laguna 2 Ph 2 Estate will not lock either by the key or by the switch inside the car. If I manually throw the lock using a pen knife or screwdriver then the switch on the tailgate will open the lock, therefore the solenoid is working, but the key will not open the manually locked lock (hope this makes sense). All other doors lock and unlock fine, I think but am not sure that the lock was intermittent before it finally stopped locking. Also if it helps when the car is set to be locked and I open the tailgate using either of the tailgate handles I.e. rear window only or complete tailgate, the alarm sounds as you would expect. But if I leave it for some time (not sure how long but def overnight), if I open the tailgate, the alarm does not sound.
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what to look at, my local non authorised garage tell me that no errors show on the diagnostics, and I can not afford to take it to a main dealer.
