Lift gate opens then immediately closes
I recently bought this vehicle used. The lift gate worked fine. 3 months later
and it will not stay open when the remote button is pressed, by pressing the
button on the overhead console, or manually opening it.
The lift gate opens completely then immediately closes without pushing the
buttons on the remote or the console. If someone stands under the lift gate
as it's closing, it does not sense the person and continues to close hitting the
person attempting to load groceries for example.
The rear of the car can only be accessed by opening a side sliding door and
putting the 2nd row seats down, making it difficult to load and unload
groceries or luggage. Basically the "trunk space" is unusable because the lift
gate will not stay open.
I'm not sure of the "trim" but I don't think that would make a difference with
fixing my problem. I basically need to know how to make a power lift gate
stay open until I choose to close it using the remote, console button, or
Any help is greatly appreciated.
