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

Sorry, was a bit of a mess here and the car was not a priority. The System is from Aliexpress. Done for my Model year.

As described in the chat, the car did not realize that the tailgate is closed.

We had to take the car to a specialist workshop anyway to update the navigation system. But they didn't have a clue either. Said the lock was defective and wanted to sell me an expensive new lock. But they do not guarantee that it will work afterwards, because it is not an original Land Rover system.

Oh miracle, after a week it suddenly works. It locks and recognizes that it is closed. Everything goes as desired.
