    I have the same problem with my 1998 Jeep grand,the interior lights come on and the information dash continues to say that the lift gate is open and it's not. The alarm doesn't work with the sensor not securing the lift gate and it also drains my battery through out the night. I really need a soultion to this problem.



    Thanks John

Try disconnecting the battery cable for a few minutes, this should clear the memory. If it still comes on, sounds like you have a coolant issue such as not circulating good. You could also have a overflow cap going bad. The cap will cause more trouble than what you would expect. Good Luck

The Coolant Sensor is inside coolant bottle; in this models is common ths message failed; clean the plug and reset your ECU alarms, if the message come on again, replace your coolant sensor. And, really, one message about a bad sensor/signal is one bad work engine.

Good luck.

96 jeep Grand Cherokee tailgate will not open


This is kind of tricky. OK let's start, you have to crawl into the rear hatch area from the inside of the car. You'll have to pull the rear panel off the hatch, a screwdriver between the panel and hatch near the window will work. There might be 2 screws on the panel you could take out. The trick is to pull the panel far away enough to stick your arm down towards the latch and release it by hand. We did this at the dealer all the time.

As you are turning the tailgate is flexing.
If you adjust the striker to get the tailgate to close tighter, it should fix your problem.
