Also have 2 wires missing on the opposite side
grey/yellow like above
and brown/purple
(there's also a 3rd missing which i know is red 12v power from Fuse 25 rear fuse box)
i have asked the guy if he had hands free opening and just hoping the extra 2 wires on each side of tailgate loom are for them,
big thanks for all help so far

With your VIN and the VIN from one fitted with the tailgate from the factory it should. I've never tried ETIS though.

Looks like im missing the grey/yellow wire from Center Stack Switch Assembly (circled red)= Is that the dash power boot switch below heater controls?
Looks like it will work on rear buttons and possibly remote BUT if i dont run a wire from front switch that button will be just for show, see below

Right i have 5 wires missing
1 red power lead from F25 = easy fix this 1
2 more are for the LED rear lights which i dont have SO these dont bother me..!!
1 is the grey/yellow which i believe is from the dash switch, maybe will leave this out if it works on remote fob and trunk switch
last wire is brown & violet which is Liftgate Ajar which both come off BCM no.47 pin but on manual liftgate its yellow & orange wire that goes straight to liftgate latch, as where no.47 pin from BCM on power liftgate breaks off and goes to tailgate lift module, both diagrams below..
I hope the bootlid handle latch are the same.....

I would have though 2.5mm 30AMP wire would be fine. It shouldn't be less than the fuse supply but then I don't know if it should be greater than the fuse supply.

i take it its for interence like you would have in some audio??
It's usually twisted around what it is supposed to shield. You will probably find you canbus wires are a twisted pair as well.

Yes, it would be to stop electrical or RF interference. The shield would normally be earthed AFAIK.

Have a view of this.


I bought these.


You can sometimes use a safety pin. Hair grips are exceptionally good. Grind them down to suit. All that stops the pins from coming out is a little tab which needs bending back.
