Tailgate wagging at me!

Post by Paulgkn » Wed Nov 07, 2018 4:51 pm

Well I have browsed the othe tailgate threads to no avail!
My tail gate has started ‘wagging ‘ at me ! Not a gesture problem as I am well away from the vehicle
Opens on the fob to 3/4 hieght, then down to 1/4/height! Repeats this a few times and then stops!
I then force it shut and all is well again for a month or so!
Any ideas!

Could be a problem with the cinching motor. Have you tried to recalibrate it to see if that corrects it?
