    Am I missing something here.
    Can I only open the electric tailgate from my keyfob with the engine switched off ?
    It seems such a short sighted option by Honda that you cannot open the tailgate from inside the car with the engine running.

    On the right hand side of the steering wheel , there is a place for 3 switches,
    1 has the VSA switch and the other 2 are blank.
    I have looked all over the dashboard and cannot see any other switches.

    Am I missing something?

    Hi Martin,

    You can open the tailgate manually using the outer handle with the engine running.This issue was resolved with the internal switch next to the headlight adjuster on the facelift models.

    Maybe it is so you don't accidentally open the tail while doing 130mph round the autobahn :Smile:
