Does closing the rear tailgate manually cause problems? 2008

Customer Question

Does closing the rear tailgate manually cause problems?
JA: What is the model/year of your Audi?
Customer: 2008 Q7
JA: Are you fixing your Q7 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: If it's something I can do, I will do it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: The gate closed just fine, but we took it to a shop and they may have closed it manually. And now it won't close with the button.

Hey how are you

it shlould not do that

But lets try a simple thing and we can go from there in case it was a glitch

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 15 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know if that will reset or Not

Thank You
