    Default Vectra hatch won't lock

    My 2-month old Vectra Elite hatchback did a nasty on me today, when I found that the hatch completely refused to lock. The clasp was moving freely, and if I manually moved it to the locked position the hatch button triggered the motor, which moved it to unlocked OK. But the clasp just refused to engage the lock pin when I closed the hatch down. So I drove home with the hatch unlocked. Tried again, and now I found it was locking more than not. So I drove to the dealers with it locked, but I noticed that the "hatch open" light was lit. By the time I got to the dealers the "hatch open" light had gone out. And the hatch locked every single time while I had a mechanic there watching. Of course, you can't fix a problem if you can't see it.... What am I looking at here? Electrical problem? There's no dashboard "hatch release" button, but is the car wired for it? Mechanical alignment of the clasp and the pin? Why would the problem just go away like that? Any good technique for making it work when it decides not to (wasn't going to leave the car unlocked in a public car park, so I had to abandon my day's work...) Thanks for any pointers
