Re: Laguna 2 phase 2 Estate tail gate wont lock

sounds like either a wiring fault, possible break in the wires from the uch to the boot lock. or the other fault which is common and there has been an official Renault fix, is the boot lock switches have been flooded with water from the window drain coming off. if you open the glass section only and look in the opening, at it's lowest point is a drain hole. this blocks with dirt and people poke things into it to clear it. this forces the drain tube off which then allows the water to drain straight into to boot lid instead of the tube. the switches are below this drain and get flooded. the fix is a plastic diverter shield. I fixed mine by sealing the tube onto the tailgate to fix. this would be my first port of call, check the lock mechanism itself for water ingress and then the wiring
