2013 C5 - Opening the tailgate with Remote middle button

Post by atakansaracoglu »

Hey, I’ve got 2013 Citroen c5 e-hdi executive. When I press the middle button of remote, the car just front lights on. How can I change this to “open tailgate” ?

Any help will be appreciated.

You can't!

You don't have the electric motorised tailgate, so you won't have that function. For vehicles without, the middle button is used for Guide Me Home lighting.

I just want to unlock the tailgate, is it impossible too?

Ok, so you have a saloon. Saloons have no motorised tailgate and no remote boot opening. The hardware and electronics are simply not there and were never part of the saloon.
