Have you changed your Barn doors to a tailgate? Got locking problems?
Have you had a relay fitted that either times out after 9 secounds or runs off of the interior light that times out and the tailgate wont open?
Barn doors use an actuator to lock the mechanism. Tailgate generally uses electronic lock apart from earlier T5 that has mechanical handle on tailgate.
This Conversion we rewire the locking system on the barn doors to function like factory tailgate
Cables installed and coding carried out,
Brake light wired
Number plate lights wired
Open and close symbol on dash wired
Where the van is pre 2010 and is a T5, VW used mechanical lock as previously mentioned. With this the Body control module doesn’t support electronic locking. We have devised a relay locking system that is safe and doesn’t back feed lights and works when it should and when it shouldn’t! This means you are able to retrofit the T6 tailgate straight to your 2004 onwards T5
Optional wash wipe and heated screen upgrade available
