I purchased a 2005 Quest that had same damage on the rear lift gate. If I crossed my eyes and pressed down on the magic spot 3% of the time I could get the door to close in a way the sensor would recognize so I didn't have the door open light turn on.

Too fix this problem I removed the interior panel from the lift gate which allows access to the the lock and some of the wires. almost directly behind the licence plate you have access to the inside the lift gate you should see 2 wires that appear to be going down the latch. I'm assuming one of these controls the power locks and the other is for the feedback sensor that tells the car the door is open.

on the drivers side of the opening that exposes the wires going down to the lock you will see there is a white connection for 1 of the 2 wires that is mounted to the inside of the lift-gate. All I did was squeeze and separate this connection and the car no longer recognizes the door is open.

I don't have an alarm so I don't know if this would mess up the alarm other than if someone broke in through the lift gate it wouldn't trigger the sensor.

I hope this helps

SOURCE: The rear power lift gate

You most likely have a failed switch in the rear gate jamb. This switch tells the system that the gate is closed and if the system thinks that the door is already open, it will not open it again.

Have the Body Control Module (BCM) scanned for codes and live data with a scan tool capable of accessing this information. This will tell you if the switch is operational by manually operating switch while monitoring the switch state with the scan tool.

Any shop with a decent scan tool should be able to do this. Nissan dealerships use Consult-II and now Consult-III scanners and have access to stuff the aftermarket guys don't get, but this should be accessible by nearly any higher end scanner like a Snap On Ethos, Solus, or Modis.

Hope this is helpful!

SOURCE: Automatic liftgate won't open

The lift gate motor needs to be replaced. Preferably at the dealer ship. Its a pain to replace and most shops will do shoddy work and destroy your interior when doing it.

SOURCE: 2004 Nissan Quest - alarm Waking the neighbors

If it's a cheap aftermarket alarm, check for a red wire coming off the hot side of your battery with an inline fuse. If it's not, try to locate the alarm "computer" under the driver's side dash or nearby your fuse panel. You'll find a black box with a wiring diagram glued to the side, normally strapped to a wiring harness or other fixed element. If this is the type of alarm you have, you'll need to trace each wire coming from the alarm computer and unclip each fastener that's clipped to your vehicle's factory wiring. The trouble with these types of alarms is that they tie in and get power from a number of sources (stereo, interior lights, etc.), so you'll have to trace and unclip 8-12 wires to fully disengage. Good luck!

Door open sensor trips and alarm sounds


It's either the sensor itself or the wiring from the sensor to wherever it goes. I would start by swapping the two rear sensors and see if the fault moves to the other side. If not it's the wiring which you will need to trace and check all connectors involved.

The better solution is to fix the hatch so it closes tightly. The latch hooks on to an adjustable loop. The hatch closes on to the rubber seal: if this is damaged, fix or replace. There may be some adjustable rubber bump stops as well. Lastly, check that the door ajar sensor is not loose.

I have had this problem after my car was repaired by a body shop. One door latch was replaced by the VW dealer which solved the alarm problem but the battery still drained. Now they are saying it is the comfort control module.

My 1991 Lexus LS 400 does something similar. When the alarm goes off I use the key to unlock the passenger side front door and it turns the alarm off. Go figure, I know it sounds funny but it solves the problem for me.

2006 Honda odyssey. Security alarm activates randomly. How do I prevent it?


Hi,

I am assuming that your Odyssey has a factory installed alarm system. If yes, then it is a basic door and ignition sensor to trigger and therefore should have no false trigerring. If it activates (with no) randomly even when not triggerred, then it can only be further assumed that door locking/sensor mechanism is getting false readings. Any thing out of the ordinary with the doors? (especially driver's side passenger doors).

You may want to check the electrical connection of the power sliding doors (Junction Switches). Like most door switches, they may be misaligned, worn out, corroded or simply deteriorated. Being an electrical device, moisture, rust, dust, grime and dirt may affect its performance.

If that does not correct the problem, you may want to check fuse #13 (the manual says #5) for continuity. There are some instances that remove and reinstall resets the alarm.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Manufacturerscar alarm


My alarm is triggered when I leave the windows down a bit. There's a motion sensor for the interior of the car (I think it's thermal), so when a breeze blows cool outside air through the car's hot interior, it triggers. The interior sensor can be turned off by pressing the button just behind the driver's door and in front of the rear door. Try turning that off and see if it makes a difference. Post a comment with the results.
