You need to go to the dealer and have them check the codes. The factory has a reflash for the sliding door and liftgate modules for this type of problem the codes it might have for this is INCOMPLETE POWER OPEN - EXCESSIVE HALL EFFECT SIGNAL the flash is resetting obstacle detection values. But you need to go to the dealer, this can be only one possible cause. I have fixed many vans that has had these 2 codes. There is a bulletin from chyrsler for this.

    I am now haveing a simular problem with the drivers side power door. It starts to open with the key or the over head control button but it stops just as soon as it unlockes. I have to manualy close it from the inside then open it all the way manualy. It will close with the key fob or the over head button. Is this simular or is an unlock problem?

I have 2005 chevy tahoe my doors all licks but my liftgate door with window stays open use to lock w all my doors? I havent check anytjing yet? I cant lock it.


Here is how it works !
Liftgate Locking Operation
The lift gate will lock any time the vehicle is shifted out of park on vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and at vehicle speeds exceeding 5 kph with manual transmission. This happens in conjunction with auto door locks if enabled or independently of auto door locks if the feature is disabled. This ensures that the lift gate is locked anytime the vehicle is shifted out of park or when the vehicle is in motion.
The lift gate lock relay supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit and the ECC fuse. The normally closed contact is connected to ground and the control side is connected to the body control module (BCM). A lock function will occur when a door lock switch activation, keyless entry lock transmission, auto door lock function or a lift gate lock function has been received by the BCM. The BCM will then ground the control side of the lift gate lock relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit. Since the other side of the lift gate lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the door unlock relay to ground, the lift gate will lock. When an unlock function occurs the BCM will ground the control side of the unlock relay and the rear doors and lift gate will unlock.
The BCM also runs diagnostics on the lift gate lock relay control circuit and will set DTC B3825 as current and also send a Class 2 message to the DIC. The DIC will display REPLACE LIFTGATE FUSE to inform the driver that a fault has been detected in the lift gate lock circuit and that the lift gate is not locked. Faults that will set the DTC and cause the DIC to display the message could be any of the following:
?€¢
An open ECC fuse


?€¢
An open or short to ground in the lift gate lock relay battery positive voltage circuit


?€¢
A faulty lift gate lock relay


?€¢
An open or short to ground in the lift gate lock relay control circuit


?€¢
A short to ground in the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit


?€¢
A faulty BCM

2008 Pontiac Torrent lift gate will not open


Hotnurse37. I'd you fix your problem. I have same issue. Fuse is okay. Remote will open all doors but I can't even hear the rear attempting to unlock. Did get access to emergency release after trying for a long time. Lock and latch looked fine but back to same problem after closing lift.

Liftgate won't open automatically


To open the lift gate manually, use the door unlock switch located on the drivers door. This should unlock the lift gate as well. Go to the lift gate and lift the handle to open the rear gate.

Your power lift gate is computer controlled. Sometimes there will be a faulty input sensor or part that will show the incorrect data to the computer, therefore the computer will not go through its normal functions.
In most cases its the problem of lift gate latch assembly.

To get it tested and confirmed there is a troubleshoot guide provided by the service center. To perform this troubleshooting guide you will require a scan tool to diagnose the exact problem.

the troubleshooting procedure is as follows:---

Please use the following information below when diagnosing an inoperative lift gate. Disconnect the connector at the lift gate latch assembly. With the lift gate latch connector disconnected, the 3 signals for the ratchet, pawl, and the sector should be inactive on the scan tool.

Install a 3A fused jumper wire between each signal circuit terminal (for the pawl, sector, and ratchet) and the ground circuit terminal 2. Monitor the scan tool as each individual circuit is jumped to ground, the scan tool should read "active".

If either tests above fails, check the wiring for the signal circuits, low reference circuit, or try a power lift gate control module from a known good vehicle. If both tests above pass, monitor the internal switch inputs in the lift gate latch assembly for proper operation.

3. A) with the lift gate in the open position, the ratchet and the pawl should read "active" and the sector should read "inactive"

B) With the lift gate in the secondary latched position, the pawl should read "Inactive" and the ratchet and sector should read "active"

C) With the lift gate fully closed, the pawl, ratchet, and the sector should all read "inactive".

4.If one of the internal lift gate latch assembly switch inputs are not reading correctly in one of the positions above and the vehicles passes test 1 and 2 above. Replace the lift gate latch assembly.

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

This should help you.Thanks.Helpmech.

Lift gate stopped working 2005 mercury monterey


The support shocks on the rear door need to be replaced. You can find them at your local auto parts store. They are VERY easy to install. Compare prices before you buy. Prices vary.

for that problem you will have to take it to the dealer the body control module stores codes that will aid in diagnosing the problem. one of the more common problems, a software issue. the body computer may need to be reflashed to the latest software level to correct.
