The dealer says it's not available on the SVR. Is this true? Please say it isn't so.
My 2017 R-Sport (with gesture tailgate) also did this. It happened a few times, so I don't think it was a fluke. Probably a theft deterent feature.And while I am listing strange tailgate things... If you remote start the car with the phone app and the first door you touch is the tailgate, the engine shuts off. if you touch a side door first the car will stay running.
Yes. I know how it's supposed to work. Thanks. Never the less, it rarely does.It really works pretty well for me, close to 100%. I think most malfunctions are due to "operator error".
Remember to come at it from either rear side, not from the back.
A quick 1-2 second in and out kick motion works best.
Plenty of videos out there on technique.
