I haven't had that specific scenario. I did however try to kick the road ice / sludge build up on the left rear wheel well just behind the wheel on the LRDS - the rear hatch opened. Tried a couple of more times and it happened each time. After that I can't reproduce it. Later my wife told be a similar story.

I'm with all of you when you say "service can't reproduce it, so - no problem exists." I cannot get the service or the dealer to give a ****.
LR sent me a quality survey after my last service visit. I didn't mince words. I'm fed-up. No one at LR seems to care that they put out a possibly dangerous product riddled with problems that they can't or won't fix.

it's happened 3 more times within same week....each time during a rain....so now this is more frequent
I got out of the car, closed the door, touch the sensor on the handle to lock the car and as I walk away - the lift gate opens half way....
It wouldn't go back right away....I had to close and open it a few times before it finally closed and didn't open on its own.

F...ing Ridiculous

I have a 2018 LR Discovery Sport and the mind of it's own tailgate started on me yesterday. First when leaving work, again at home, and this morning getting gasoline. I was able to shut it from inside with the dash panel switch. It would not let you close it from the outside and would open and close partially on it's own multiple times. I will try the walking away with the key fob trick next. I still do not like having the tailgate open on it's own.

I had this happening too - I lost some stuff out of the back of the vehicle
I finally clicked that the problem was my knee hitting the tailgate open button as I was entering the car! I have a right hand drive one and the button is really badly placed to the right of the steering wheel
I cured it my making surround to the two adjacent buttons out of 10mm EVA foam so that the only way to operate the the buttons is to push your finger into the opening.
It has never happened since.

JLR are now aware of the issue.... some 3-4 months ago when I first reported it at the service they said they can't reproduce and there is no problem.
3 weeks ago I was there for oil change and mentioned this problem again.....the guys said that this was now validated by JLR and they have a new sensors in stock for all those who have the same complain.
It;s called : Tailgate Module LR072284

Nicely done. I'm impressed by your drive to diagnose the problem as well as you fix. Good work!
