Hmm, I tried looking for these strips you mention. Couldn't find anything that might be unclean or damaged.

How do I get it back to automatic from manual mode? Is it in the manual? If so, will take a look.

It seems to imply that it'll do it on its own once the obstruction has cleared. So it's probably not a sensor issue with yours - but it's worth a check anyway.

Hi all,
Thank you very much for resolving this issue I’ve had for some days, with my Outlander.
I was tearing my hair out but it just took a Google search to take me to this page for which I am truly grateful.

Remote: unlock, tap tailgate twice.

100% working for me.
Fantastic! :D Since I got my Exy 2 years ago, I've never had the remote boot opener working but when I saw this, I went out and gave it a bash and...it works! This will save me a few seconds when doing the shopping ( :lol: ) but it also gives me a chance to show off the Exy in front of the wife ;)

Cheers
