Hi folks
New here...

I forgot to tick the electric tailgate box when I bought the car new back 2017.

Always annoyed me. I've now seen that you can install them later. So I bought such a kit and installed it. It actually worked quite well. Everything is plugged in. It does work. Opens and closes wonderfully. The lock also closes audibly.

Unfortunately, the driver's display shows that the rear door is not closed. The car can therefore no longer be locked.

I have already disconnected and reconnected the battery. That does not help.

Anybody got any ideas?

Have you tried to close the tailgate manually or giving it an extra hard push after it closes??? You may have to adjust the striker, it seems very sensitive.

Curious what brand of after market kit did you buy

I assume for safety reasons the sensor should be operating.
