The only thing I can see in the electrics is a control module that operates the locking mechanism, but that alone would not fail and cause this problem, I would be checking the loom from the lock down the boot hinge looking foe a point that may have been damaged and when you close to a given point the short causes the lock to activate.

Loom is that section of the wiring harness. It will either be wrapped with black electrical tape, or have a black plastic cover.
