Tailgate window problems

Is your Freelander 1 tailgate window not operating properly? They have been known to randomly open before, or not close properly! Before heading to the garage try recalibrating it.

Here is the recalibration procedure:

1. Disarm the alarm system.
2. Disconnect your Freelander battery.
3. Wait for 5 seconds.
4. Reconnect your battery.
5. The tailgate window will automatically go down completely.
6. Put your key in the ignition and turn to the ‘ignition’ position.
7. Using the tailgate window control on the dashboard, press and hold until the tailgate window is fully up.
8. If you get a warning buzzer then the calibration has failed, otherwise that’s it, your tailgate window is recalibrated.

 

If the standard recalibration of your Freelander 1 tailgate window does not work then check out the procedure in this bulletin:
