I would first check for any eroded insulation on the wiring wherever it is accesible. A visual check is much cheaper than a dealer's diagnostics check. Mucky fuse-boxes can also cause problems if the muck (usually oily) manages to bridge some connection or other.

I'd say, have a THOROUGH visual inspection first in relevant places. Sorry I can't be more specific as mine is a Laguna but someone will be along with an opinion soon, I'm sure.

That squared off U bolt that the boot lid hooks on was loose in my last Scenic, and is loose in my new one. I think it's deliberate. More probable is one of the plastic switches that shows the 4 passenger doors open/closed. Usually down at the bottom of the door on the car, plunger type switch. They'reheld in place with 4 bits of plastic which stick out from each one, inside the hollow box section. With time this plastic becomes brittle and one or more snap off, leaving the switch able to drop inside the box section and show the door open. Obvious how to replace (if it is that!).
