Red face Re: Tailgate problem!!! Help

I have come out from work twice to find my hatch open also. I keep the fob in my pocket so I may be unknowingly hitting the button. I am going to keep the fob in my desk to see if it stops. we will see what happens .

Re: Tailgate problem!!! Help

What do you have to do to open your tailgate? Push it one time or two? I wonder if it would still open if you just hold the button down.

Re: Tailgate problem!!! Help

Just this Tuesday morning I came out to my garage to go to work and my tailgate was open. I thought that maybe somehow I hit the button (twice) the night before while sitting on the couch.

Re: Tailgate problem!!! Help

There has been much discussion about accidentally starting, unlocking doors, and opening tail gates, someone even posted a prototype FOB protector a few months ago. Mostly the culprit is carrying something like a cell phone in the same pocket as the FOB. These FOBs seem to have a much more effective range than previous models. I can start my car from my desk, which is in the middle of an office building and about 200 yards from my parking spot.

Oh, by the way, my gate will not open by simply holding the button down for 15 seconds. The switch needs to bounce.

Re: Tailgate problem!!! Help

Is it beeping when you try?

Check that the lift glass is fully shut.

Re: Tailgate problem!!! Help

I have tried all the suggestions, but to no avail. It just wont open! i have been trying everything for over a month and the dealer said he has never come across this situation, there is nothing on the inside to open manually.

Re: Tailgate problem!!! Help

Just a thought, but sometimes the latch gets "jammed" by something that may have been laying in the back and wedged the latch.
Does the hatch move at all? Have you tried pushing on the hatch while lifting up on the handle?
Good luck.
