Indeed. I pulled fuse 21 out today while the car was parked at work. Went back a couple hours later, refitted it and turned the key. TAIL GATE light still on, nothing reset, so the problem's a little deeper than the boot's ECU needing rebooting (no pun intended :rolleyes: ).
This is reset procedure

To reset the tailgate ECU:

[SIZE=12pt]The tailgate needs to be open, remove BOTH negative AND positive terminals from battery for several minutes (20), reattach pos then neg, turn key to position all (lights on dashboard) -notice that TAILGATE warning light is now off. Physically close the boot by hand, remove key from ignition [/SIZE]

2006 2.2 Tourer
I've recently had frustrations with the tailgate on my tourer. It would close with motor,but light on dash said it was open. It wouldn't open with motor at this point. Pulling at tailgate showed it wasn't fully closing, but was on what I can describe as a first latch (kind of like a popped bonnet) so it couldn't be lifted open but wasn't properly closed. If I shoved it a bit it would then be fully closed and everything worked as normal. This was the case for a few weeks during which I manually closed (slammed) it but electronically opened, at which point tried the motor to close it and it was fixed. Then after a while it went faulty again. Anyway this time I realised the handle to manually open the boot was stuck on open position (stiff through lack of use I guess). I simply pushed it back to its proper resting position and it's fine. Hope this helps someone out as it was annoying me no end! I just need to get round to spraying a bit of wd40 and work it in to get it back to how it should be before someone else (was my father last time) decides to open boot with the handle!

Hey guys - Had same issue as this thread.... Got some very welcome help from freddofrog in terms of plugging in diagnostics (ta!) BUT no obvious solution from other posts -

As we can reset whenever we need to by disconnecting the battery, I wondered - Is there a way I can put a switch into the power feed that goes to the ECU? I'm getting tired of re-programming the radio :)

Hey Saj - Same reason as others - the boot tail warning light comes on then the boot won't open... Once we disconnect the battery for 10 secs it resets and works for up to a week...

You either have wiring issue or faulty ecu or software need update on tailgate ecu pm me if you still stuck

For those having tailgate issues I suggest you check wiring before jumping In too deep.
Since I repaired my boot wiring have never had to reset, you can remove tailgate fuse in engine to reset.

Thanks Saj!

UPDATE - Our battery was pretty crap and finally died in the cold weather around a month ago - the problem has now not happened again, so perhaps before anything else, try a donor battery of good quality.

The battery most likely reset which can fix ecu stuck issues. However if wiring has intermittent issues you will see problem back hopefully not in your case, thanks for reply.

Reviving this thread. Mine was working fine this morning used it once today came to open it this afternoon and nothing works on the boot. The key fob button doesn't work neither does the handle and I've got the tail gate light on. How annoying!

Broken wiring just peel back the lining where it hinges and inspect it

My turn, Honda Accord Tourer 55 plate. No key fob, no lock, Tail light on dash. Only second issue in 5 years (first was aircon over pressure sensor) so can't grumble compared to my Landie lol.

Fuse 21 seems to affect the the central locking too - is that correct?

For tomorrow:
  • Inspect Fuse 21
  • Reset dash light/ECU by following said instructions above
  • Inspect wiring
  • Feel free to add!

Can someone point me to a HDS? Do I need a HIM too?

Maybe all I need is: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HDS-Cable-OBD2-Diagnostic-Cable-Tool-Support-HDS-OEM-Software/152961014473
AND https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-HDS-3-103-023/202806064369?hash=item2f382ef4f1:g:ZyoAAOSw-hRcq8S4
??

OR the latest whole shaboodle?



Cheers all.
