I have a 2020 Tiguan R Line. When I bought it, the advertisement claimed you could open/close the liftgate from your remote, the driver remote switch and of course the in liftgate button. I subsequently learned via my dealership that VW issued a safety bulletin and disabled the ability to close the liftgate with the remote or the driver switch if the Tiguan has a 3rd row seat installed (presumably so that little ones can't get their arms trapped in a closing door). I am assuming that this can be tweaked using VCDS, but I have yet to find the right coding/adaptation to do so. Please help.

I would presume this is the same as other cars in MQB range with new enough tailgate control unit. You need to flash a new parameter set to the tailgate unit which is not doable with VCDS I'm afraid.

Downtime is right about the setting being stored in parameters.

That's unfortunate. Is there a tool/software for flashing new parameters?

You can achieve it with VCP System or the factory tool.
