Cayenne tailgate fault


Recommended Posts

My Porsche Cayenne has a warning light informing me that the tailgate is open. The interior light that would normally come on when the door is open stays on permanently although the tailgate is closed. When I lock the car the doors lock but the tailgate remains unlocked. After a few minutes the tailgate locks which I assume is due to automatic locking after a period of time. Can anybody please help me with my problem.

Can't tell what model you have because there are no Cayenne's listed in your profile? Some of the Cayenne models had various issues with the rear liftgate and there have been service bulletins to repair them. Warranty or not, if there is a service bulletin Porsche will fix it. Sounds like that is what you may have, but not certain.

Good luck

Porsche will only repair an issue for free if it's under a recall not a TSB. Even some recalls will be time dependent. Sorry I can't help with your problem but suggest you have the vehicle scanned for code which might point to a micro switch fault in the gate latch assembly.

I think I used the wrong term......As I looked at my Porsche documentation for my Cayenne it was stated as an "Open Campaign" by my dealer. The dealer should be able to use your VIN and tell you if there are any open campaigns on your Cayenne. If they have any, they will do the repairs for you at no cost. I had some issues with mine while it was out of warranty and the repairs were all done at no charge....So I guess you could ask

your dealer to check on that for you.

Good luck!
