Unable to lock tailgate on 2022 Limited with MFT

Just took delivery of my new 2022 10th Anniversary Edition Limited with Ramboxes and MFT. Noticed today that I cannot lock the tailgate.

It does not lock when locking the doors with the door handle button. The Ramboxes lock fine.

The tailgate will also not lock when using the key fob to lock all the doors, again the Ramboxes lock fine.

Has anyone else had this problem? Searched the owners manual, but the only reference to locking tailgate is "tailgate can be locked using the key fob" on page 86. Doesn't specifically reference if the tailgate can be locked or unlocked using door handle button.

Any help, greatly appreciated. At this time I think I'll have to call dealer. Maybe a chip problem or bad wire connection?

To expand on what bill-e just said, if the fob is in your pocket and you grab the tailgate handle it will open, locked or not. Lock the truck, remove the fob from the vicinity, and go back without the fob and try the handle again. If it still opens, then yes you have a problem. But I'll bet it works fine. 😁 Let us know.

Same thing happened to me, turns out my truck was smarter than me. Lol, we all did it and we eventually came to the same realization, sometimes on this forum :)
