Relocating Rear hatch closing button

interesting idea you could also apply to the cayenne - but if you are opening it to either put something in yourself or have someone else do that - why can't you just use the close button at that time?

now if you opened it by accident it would help but that isn't likely to occur that much.

well i need it cuz I'll be using the car for hk/china traveling and now they require each vehicle to open its hatch for inspection each time we go thru... using a remote location switch will mean I won't have to jump out the car to open and to close the stupid hatch everytime.... its not fun when its pouring rain outside....stupid communist policy

it has become a must have option for cross border cars LOL

Hi, sorry to resurrect an old thread but do we have any update on this? Need to open/close rear hatch as well due to very similar reasons you've stated Can I run a wire from the rear trunk switch to the dash and put a toggle switch?

I have a 970.2. The rear hatch button on the driverís door will also close the hatch. You need to push and HOLD the button depressed until the hatch closes fully. Hope this works for you.

I learned about this feature on this forum a few years ago when I first got the car. Donít think itís even in the manual. Itís probably one of handiest things Iíve learned from fellow 6Speedsters! Good luck!

I dont think pushing and holding button works.
With hatch closed, push and hold and hatch opens.
With hatch open, push and hold does nothing.

Would be super nice to have a way to close the hatch from car. Anyone can help will be awesome.

Works on my Ď14 970.2. Wondering if this is the case for others or if my car is ďspecialĒ! I have Entry & Drive and not sure if this makes a difference? Can anyone else with a 970.2 chime in? Others with 970.1 and 971 please jump in as well.
Thanks.

confirming that it works on my 970.2. have to have the ignition on, and hold button down for the close cycle to complete. if i let up on the button it stops closing. not unlike using the spoiler manually.

Agreed 970.2 press and hold the button and the hatch closes.

2010 Panamera S. Not sure if its a 970, 970.1 or .2 maybe its 970 (best guess). Nothing happens on long press of button on the driver's door. Need to push the button located on the rear hatch to cloae it...everytime Pls see video...


Should I run the long wire from the rear hatch button and place a toggle switch somewhere on the dash? Seems like it's the only solution for now

Just an idea but perhaps the button and functionality of the 970.2 model can be programmed in the previous models. Check with the dealer maybe it’s a part to add or just reprogramming.

Just checked my 2018 Panny T. The door switch control unit has an open and a close button for the rear hatch. The close button does need to he held down until the hatch locks Both buttons work.
