    I have a problem with my Mercedes Benz E320 cdi avntgard estate 2004.
    I changed my battery My car was locked.
    I opened the door with the key
    Took down the folding rear seat ,opened boot
    Installed the new battery Now my tailgate will not lock it's self .
    I press the tailgate button it closes but not locking itself.
    It has soft shut so it should lock itself
    So annoying cannot find a garage in the area to take a look at my vehicle And I can't find a thing online
    So bleep bleep when I'm driving

    Try this.

    With the boot open.

    Close the boot catch in the boot lid wth a small screwdriver and see if the warning goes off.

    If it does the problem doesn't lie in the boot catch. If it feels stiff spray some wd40 in the mechanism.
