Tailgate Issue

Post by KTG58 »

Hi All
I’m Kev and new to the forum

Wondering if anyone can help R:E an electronic Tailgate issue on a 2009 Tourer 2.2

Tailgate works fine with engine running but if car has gone into economy mode the tailgate has got progressively harder to close manually.

In the past just a couple of gently tugs, I heard the motor disengage and could close the tailgate with little effort, Now to close it takes a lot more force to the point where I now restart the engine to use the control motor.

Does this mean the cables need lubricating or is it a motor issue

Thanks Kev P

There's a mod that can be done via Lexia that sorts out the economy mode gremlin (and the worlds most annoying tailgate).
The details are on here somewhere I'm sure.

It's a great thing to do.
Took me about five minutes on the laptop.
I did mine at the start of the first lockdown and since then the car has frequently spent days or sometimes weeks just sitting still.
I've still never once been faced with the dreaded sodding 'beep-beep' when I go to open the tailgate.
