Central Locking problem again.

Well I feel that I have been beaten at last by Renault electrics. My problem started when I could not open the tailgate on my Tourer, after following several recommendations I still could not get it to work. It was intermittent but always decided not to open when you most wanted it.

I took the upholtery off checked everything, all was dry all connections seemed OK. I have even bought a new lock but as soon as I put this on I learnt that this did not make any difference.

I then thought that perhaps the striker needed adjustment so I did this and yes this appeared to fix the problem. Everything was OK even the rear window shut and closed easily.

This week I then get the problem that when using the plip card to unlock the car the drivers door won't open. I sprayed with some WD40 and thought that solved the problem but the next day it still would not unlock. As stated I have tried all the suggestions mentioned in other posts on this forum but they haven't solved the problem.

Today I even disconnected the battery for a couple of hours and then went for a drive to reset the computer but this did not work either and to top it all the taigate won't open.

I am now at a loss as to what I should do, it does seem that there is an electric fault somewhere as these two problems seem to come and go as they feel like it.
