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?

Does it happen during/shortly after heavy rain? Mine did the same thing, turns out rear fog light was leaking causing an issue with the loom. Had it changed under warranty and no issues since.
