Interesting the gesture tailgate stopped working correctly after about 5 weeks, now very intermittent. However yesterday whilst jet washing it wouldn't stay shut. In the end I put the keys in the garage, problem resolved. However the gesture tailgate still wont open on command :(

Had the same problem late last year and dealership disabled the gesture control. No word from them since on any fix. Has anybody had a resolution to this problem yet or are we expected to just live with having paid for something that doesn't work?

Having the same issues - tailgate opening/closing erratically on two occasions. Can anyone confirm that disabling the gesture control 'fixes' this issue? I am scared the tailgate will leave me stranded somewhere or worse still open when I am driving.

As a temporary fix / trial you could disable the whole keyless entry / exit system as that also includes the gesture feature.
There’s a video link somewhere on here and it definitely works as I have done it on mine - more for security than anything else.
Maybe worth a try?

Thanks, it's booked into the dealer this Thursday so will see what they say first. Very annoying issue though :x

Same happened to me. I was only 2nd day with DS. Tried to open the tailgate to show friends, it didn’t open and when I about to give up it opened and stopped half way. And stopped there for a while even though I tried gestures control many times. At last I had to close it by the button

Update

Received my car back today from the dealer after I had issues with the tailgate. They have replaced the rear fog light which was apparently leaking in heavy downpours and are confident this has solved the issue (fingers crossed).

They told me LR are aware of this issue and have issued a bulletin to dealers to replace fog lights in the first instance.
