    Tail gate on insignia elite estate

    Can anyone help.
    I have a 62 plate insignia estate elite, the tail gate does not stay up?
    I've had hinges replaced-both struts electric and normal- the tailgate boot motor power unit replaced and it still happens.....someone has told me it could be a sensor???
    It doesn't bleep when it is open and I've been told it should. I have inherited this problem as I've brought it second hand.
    Please can anyone help me???
    John.

    Does it open on its own? Is the switch set to max?

    Yes it does open with key fob and door switch and it's on max.
    Should it be on 3/4?

    Thanks for taking an interest

    There was a recall for ST's with the powered strut. Should be (if that's the problem) fixed under warranty. The recall goes back at least 2 years

    As you look from the rear the right strut is the powered one. This may be leaking internally, with seals perished? If it opens normally and then begins to fall, then I think its a leak.

    But it was only replaced a month ago???
    I can't see this been a problem and there's no sign of leakage?

    Any other ideas plz?
