Hello! There is a 4 pin connector that plugs into the tailgate with colors; Gray/Blue (pin4)...White/Black (pin1)...Blue/Black (pin3)...And Blue/White (pin 2)...Pins 2 & 3 are the motor that operates the tailgate...pins 1 & 4 are the switch contacts with pin 1 (White/Black wire tied to chassis ground)...When you press your remote Ground should be on pin #4...Check the plug to see if it is properly connected also inspect for loose or broken wires....If all looks good open the left kick panel and switch relays "L" and "U" and see if the problem occurs on a different door...If it does Relay "L" is the culprit...Replace relay...Guru...saailer
I had problems with a 2000 V70 tailgate lock and it turned out to be broken cables in the tailgate loom where it is tightly cable tied to the car body, near side, beneath plastic roof panel 30cm from tailgate
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?
Unfortunately, This is a very common problem with Ford Explorers! Ford replaces the locks when it encounters this issue. I managed to unseize my passanger door and tailgate lock, but the drivers door lock is broken beyond repair. You can purchase new remotes for your explorer and program them very easily. Just google ford key fobs...
