How to Activate Auto Liftgate Function on 2019 Audi Q7 with Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Installed


After installing the #76076 hitch on my 2019 Q7, the auto lift gate function does not work. Is there anything particular that I need to look for?


Expert Reply:

Having trouble with the auto-lift tailgate function on newer vehicles after a trailer hitch is installed isn't an uncommon occurrence. With the Draw-Tite # 76076 installed on your 2019 Audi Q7 try kicking to the left and right of the receiver in a back-and-forth motion (like kicking a soccer ball) and this should activate the tailgate. I have attached a photo with some other locations you can try as well.

If you let me know what you plan on using the trailer hitch for I can make some additional recommendations if necessary.
