Using remote fob to open tailgate

Hi all,

Just took delivery of a new 2020 X5 40i and am still on the learning curve of learning all the controls and functions. It took me 30 minutes to figure out how to simply display the odometer reading on the dashboard screen. But, I digress.

OK ... the tailgate. Using the remote fob, pressing open tailgate opens the tailgate. That is fine. So, there does not seem to be any function to close the tailgate except by using the button on the tailgate or the control switch on the driver's door.

Is there a way to close the tailgate using the remote fob? Perhaps some secret handshake.

Thanks,

Steve

The key fob can programmed to open & close the tailgate using a "secret handshake" aka coding

Have a look at https://bimmercode.app/

Google E-sys + tokenmaster if you want to get into hardcore BMW coding.

Thanks for the link. I checked that out. Unfortunately, for the generation G05 of the X5 the supported coding options do not support opening or closing the tailgate.

Regards,

Steve

Actually it did work up till about 2 months ago;

Then apparently a bug was introduced that broke the function;
