Power tailgate has a mind of its own

Post by twabrigs » Mon Dec 02, 2019 11:31 am

Hi folks.

I have a new problem with just happened three times this week where the power tailgate opens itself...

All three times the car was parked with the engine off and one of the rear doors has been open (it’s happened with either one of the rear doors). I have definitely not pressed the tailgate button in the car or on the key.

The first time it happened I had opened the rear offside door to put something in the back. I left it open and walked round to open the front nearside and as I did the tailgate opened.

Yesterday we left the car and as soon as the final door (rear nearside) was slammed the tailgate opened. All very odd.

Anyone else had this, or have any bright ideas?
