I have an 08 EXPY Eddie Bauer that occassionally when I press the auto-close button on the remote or in the rear compartment, the gate will close but then opens again as if there is an obstacle in the door. Other times it works just fine. Is there a TSB on this or is there some adjustment I can make to make the door close more reliably?
So I pulled the panel off the other day to figure out why my lift gate wouldn't open with the remote or the exterior handle.
I started checking continuity on the wires and found that one of the main connectors going to the latch had corrosion buildup which was preventing the pins from making contact.
I cleaned the connector out with contact cleaner and she is back to normal.
Thanks for the information as of this morning my power liftgate will not open electronically or manually.
Is the wire you are referring to inside the panel? I found a few different wires and various connection points.
If you trace back from the latch handle it goes to a small connector (2 wires i believe) and from there it goes to a larger connector (about 6-8 wires) it was the larger one that had the buildup on my truck. With the panel off it was pretty much in the middle of the lift gate, maybe a bit closer to the pass. side but I would check them all while you have the panel off.
