    Same issue developed today.  No proximate cause, other than normal use of the tailgate.

If it is not ejecting the DVD and it says that it is you might want to take it to a dealership. It is under warranty and they will be able to help you out.

SOURCE: broken tailgate latch

Remove the paneling from inside. Than you can use a flathead screwdriver to pry the latch rod and latch enough to pop open the door.

If the engine is still not warmed up yet and you take off like a bat out of hell, they will misfire occasionally. If it is a frequent problem change the spark plugs.

SOURCE: my sunroof is stuck open can i manually close it

You have a bad motor or bad connections on the motor. The motor is above the headliner. To remove the headliner you must remove everything on the headliner. Next remove all of the trim holding it in place. Carefully pry upward on one side until it is free and the rest can easly be removed.

TAILGATE OPEN WARNING LIGHT IS ON WHEN TAILGATE IS CLOSED


Sound like your tail gate switch has failed or maybe a fuse

I would take these actions :

1. Check fuses
2. Replace Tailgate switch
3. Take to Auto electrician as it could be a short in your wiring harness.

Hope this helps

Why dome lights with fade do not work when doors are opened or closed?


All of the items you listed are controlled by the Central Control Unit (AKA body control module) which is located under the right side of the dash behind the glove box.

The CCU has several battery voltage inputs which should be checked:

Fuse #8 (15 Amp), (Hot in RUN or START) and Fuse #15 (20 Amp) (HOT AT ALL TIMES) in passenger compartment fuse block.
Fuse #10 (10 Amp) (HOT AT ALL TIMES) in the engine compartment fuse block, via the inertia switch located ay the left rear side of the engine compartment.

Note: the inertia switch supplies power to pin #18 (BLUE/GREEN wire) at the CCU connector C0428. If there is battery voltage at this pin, the inertia switch is OK.

When you check your fuses, make sure they have power when they are supposed to have power. I have had many people simply LOOK at the fuses and tell me they are OK only to find out that the fuse has no power even though it is not blown. (possible connector or wiring problem to the fuse itself).

If this information is not enough to locate the problem, you will need a scan tool that is capable of two-way communication with your onboard computer network to continue diagnosis.

2005 Ford Freestar after starting van or even w/o starting and key turned to 'on' position gets 5 audible beeps (five times total) with no light illuminated on the dash.


Most Fords will give you an audible warning if there is an issue that would normally light on the dash AND the bulb is burnt out. This could be an emissions (check engine) light or air bag light. Even without the light on the dash, the computer will store a code that can be used to find out which light is on.

HI, My 03 Dodge Caravan's tailgate keeps unlatching. It's been doing in for about a week. I have to get out and open it and re close it over and over again. It does not happen while driving, but...


Call a dealer with your VIN at hand, there could be a recall on this. If not you are still going to end up having a dealer address this issue as it is electronic and the control module is most likely at fault.

Auto tailgate warning light is on dash board but tailgate closed.


I have a similar problem, my tailgate stopped working with the outside handle and the remote but can be opened manually from the inside. I don't have an alarm so there is no problem with that but did you get a solution for the tailgate problem that I could try?

The VW Golf (2002) I have is setting off the alarm, the dash indicates that the tailgate is open, but appears to be closed. Is there a sensor on the tailgate that may be faulty?


The micro-switch is fitted inthe lock of the tailgate.Try opening the tailgate and manually close the lock and see if the boot light and the dash indicater light go off,if not,replace boot lock.If the lights go off,tailgate not closing properly,adjust the boot lock catch.Good luck

2002 Honda Odyssey security alarm system


Make sure your hood is shut. I just got my 2002 Honda Odyssey back from the dealer today (90,000 mile check-up - I love my van and will drive it until it dies!) and when I went to lock the van with my remote transmitter, the lights didn't flash and the horn didn't sound. I open and closed all the doors and tailgate and I could hear that the doors were locked, but the security system wasn't working and that is why the lights didn't blink or the horn didn't sound. I walked up to the front of the van to check the hood to make sure it was closed (there isn't an indicator light for an open hood, only open doors) and the hood wasn't shut completely. Once I opened the hood and let it drop to securely shut, I hit the door lock button on the remote and everything worked like a charm! Hope this helps others in this predicament.
