Had error message "gate". After opening and closing my rear gate,(2010 Jeep Liberty), interior lights went on. Made it to work. Tried to start car after work and the battery was dead.


scan it.
the CEL lamp on running means. "SCAN ME.," now.

the gate warning means just that, gate in ALarm.
and needs to be repaired.

Why liftgate acuator clicking when lift gate is open


I would bet on the liftgate module (LGM) It controls all that stuff back there,wiper,defrost,gate ajar light,gate lock and unlock ect. Might try wiggleing the wiring boot where the wires go from the body to the gate,if it changes anything,bet on a broken wire inside that boot.
If not the LGM is my first thought.

2009 caravan manual liftgate is down and latched but "gate" warning light on and interior lights stay on and will kill the battery. Where is the problem?


The lift gate activates a contact. This contact must be integrated in the frame of the lift gate. The contact does not switch.
Either it has to be adjusted (mechanical in right position) or it is defective, then you have to replace it.

Lift gate open warning light sounds when temp is below 60


sounds like the cold temps cause the metal door to warp which causes an increased distance to the sensor that tells the computer the lift gate is open. The lift gate sensors should be adjusted to be closer together.

Computer may need to be reset or replaced that controls these functions. Have professionally checked at a reputable Dodge dealership.
