I damaged my tailgate and had to fit a secondhand one of a similar year to my car (2008). Because my tailgate was damaged the button could not open the door since it was jammed. I kept pressing it until the button stopped working or making a sound.
Now with the new door fitted I cannot get the replacement button to work. It is as if something has fused or burned out. I cannot find anything although I have checked all the fused in the car, under bonnet, on side of dashboard and in luggage compartment. I have also disconnected the battery but again made no difference. I have also checked the wiring to the tailgate but cannot find any problem.
My 3rd brake light on the new tailgate is also not working but this may be a different problem?
I would particularly like to know why I have no power to the tailgate lock. Any help greatly appreciated.
