This is reset procedureStevearcade said: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 ).

Why would need to keep resetting ?kingwowns said: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
You either have wiring issue or faulty ecu or software need update on tailgate ecu pm me if you still stuckkingwowns said: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...
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.kingwowns said:Thanks Saj!
UPDATE - Our battery was pretty ***** 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.
