skypilot Mine is the same as to OP - if the engine is running I can not open the tailgate. I have not tried it with the key fob as yet though.

Strange, as my button on the dash will not work with the engine running, but pushing the handle works fine

ih1086ihpsd Forgot to answer your first question. The tailgate locks when you lock the doors.

ih1086ihpsd Are you able to open the other doors on the truck? You should be able to open it if you hit the unlock button on the door or shut the truck off. If that is the case the auto lock feature is turned on.
If you scroll through the settings on the instrument panel you will find the auto lock/unlock there. It's the gear icon. Then go to advanced settings. You can turn it on and off as well as the auto unlock.
If auto lock is on it locks the doors at somewhere around 10 mph, then unlocks when you shut the truck off, if the auto unlock feature is on. If auto lock is on and auto unlock is off you have to manually unlock the doors. It's the newer electrical version of child safety locks. No more lever on the door.

Tailgate issues

two Questions regarding my tailgate on my 2017 F350 SRW lariat with ultimate package.
1). How do you lock the tailgate ?
2). When truck is running I cannot open the tailgate from the tailgate latch, I have to use key fob to open it. What am I doing wrong?
