Lower tailgate won't close

Anyone had this?
When I open the tailgate on the fob it opens absolutely fine, fully open upper and lower.

When I try and close it, either with the fob or the buttons on the upper or lower it does not budge. I get a click sound if I press the button on the lower gate, and a light beep if I touch the button on the upper tailgate.

If I close the lower gate manually (which I have to do) the upper will shut on the button.

Any ideas?

Mine has been like it for about 9 months - been meaning to get it looked at, but not got round to it and I’ve learned to live with it - basically have to manually close the lower tailgate every time.

My car is in Bordeaux until late September, so won’t get looked at until at least then.

Hopefully you find a nice simple fix for me Cool

Hi everyone

New here but in love with this car!

Mine has just started this weird behaviour too. On the fob won't open fully, hit and miss on the button on the tailgate if it all closes up. Will ask when I service it next.

After opening the boot, before trying to close it again, have you tried:

Using the keyfob by pressing the unlock car button before then pressing the keyfob button that is intended for closing the boot (it works every time for me)?

Yes - tried that - the upper starts to close but the lower doesn’t move at all - then the upper returns to its original position

My lower tailgate seems completely dead - press the button and there is a click but no motor noise or movement

It opens fine and can be closed manually. Then the upper part works fine.

Same with the reset procedures etc - they are all about the upper tailgate opening height as far as I can tell.

Got it fixed at Birmingham North Land Rover (Lancaster's) It was a broken wire, fixed under warranty.

Very happy with the service.

Did they tell you which wire ?

It sounds like I have the exact same problem

Mines out of warranty & don't want to spend a fortune on diagnostics Very Happy

No, it took them about an hour to find it. The fault code was something to do with the anti pinch sensor?

I don't believe it was a broken wire as such, i'm guessing a bad connection??
