My tailgate on my 2015 Range Rover Evoque Dynamic is not opening no matter what button I press. It unlocks but does not raise up. Well sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t. If i do it 10 times, I’d say three times it will open. The other times I have to manually force it open. But always closes. Pressed the close button for 30 seconds to clear the memory but didn’t help. Took it to my local mechanic and told me it did not issue any faulty codes and referrer me to Land Rover. Removed the back cover, I can see two modules but not an expert to know what I’m really looking at. For the last week I’ve been googling it but nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Update...Took it to Land Rover and it turns out it was a weak main battery. It was not providing sufficient power to lift the gate. Replaced battery and problem solved.

My 2014 has had the same problem. I've had JLR look at it. Apparently, from what I understand is that there is a small separate battery that operates the accessories, including the tailgate lift. What they told me is that because I don't drive enough daily, it doesn't completely charge. After a long drive freeway, it works fine. When I've had it parked a few days, it will work just after I've driven it, then stops again. One of those annoying technology problems. Of course, I was raised in the days when you had to actually lift the tailgate if you wanted it opened. No soft button to just touch. So I just deal with it. Car is now out of warranty, so I don't want to pay a lot just for the same answers. If you find anything different, let me know too.

Late to party as usual. I have 13, so it should be the same model base. Auxiliary battery is underneath the passenger side glove box, the pannel where your feet are pops off. You could try replacing it. But if your car still goes into automatic e brake. I doubt its the battery because it controls that too. Check the shock absorbers they may be failing.
