SOURCE: lift gate wont open

OK, this minor collision may have shifted the actual clip and latch assembly. You may have to totally disassemble the latch assembly to release this lift gate.

Any kind of major or minor shifting of the lift gate lock latch assembly can cause misalignment that will jam this delicate precise locking mechanism.

SOURCE: rx330 won't open rear gate

Inside the glove box on the left side there is an on/off switch, which m,ay have been bumped off thereby shutting off the power controls to the hatch. Check that first. Then press the unlock button on your key twice, then test all 3 power hatch buttons to test them, one each on lower left dash by the gas cap door release, one on fob and the one at the hatch. If they still do not work it is possible your door may need to be 'initialized" by your dealer due to power failure. I have seen this with seats and windows but never with the rear door....

Lift gate will not power down to closed when button on gate or remote is pushed. Lights do flash though.


There are switches on both ends of the course of the motor, if one fails it will only work on the side that´s ok. That´s why it opens but do not close.Check it out.

Trouble opening lift gate in 2012 Equinox computer saying rear door open


Hey Karen,

That lift gate has a control module that controls the operation.
It communicates with the latch and other body modules

If the info display is indicating it is open when you know it is indeed shut.....I would suspect the latch assembly. There is a micro switch in the latch that informs the module when the gate is closed.
A scanner is actually the best most efficient way to diagnose this issue. A good independent garage should be able to scan for you for a fee. It will be worth the fee. Also...the lift assist struts are problematic on this particular vehicle. They assist in opening and keeping the lift-gate open.

How do I reset lift gate on 2004 lincoln navigator. It doesn't open or close anymore with the remote


Maybe your key fob needs a new battery !
Power Liftgate Initialization

NOTE:If the power liftgate system is turned OFF in the message center, the system cannot be activated with any switches or with the liftgate handle. The system will need to be turned ON for any power operation to occur.

NOTE:The power liftgate may not operate under the following conditions:

  • a low voltage or dead battery.
  • a disconnected battery
  • a power liftgate that has been left open for more than six hours.
  • a power liftgate that has been manually closed and left ajar.
If any of these conditions has occurred, the power liftgate must be reset.
  1. Manually close and fully latch the power liftgate.
  1. NOTE:If the power liftgate does not open during this step, refer to the symptom chart to diagnose the power liftgate for no operation.
    Power open the power liftgate by using the keyfob or overhead console switch.
  1. Once the power liftgate is fully open, close the power liftgate by using the keyfob or overhead console switch.
    This system can also set DTC'S

Gemini gate motor


Check if it has stops anywhere in the system, usually there are micro switches that are activated by arms, etc that tell it how far to open and close. You may need to adjust them.

Reset my centurion gate motor but when i push test button the gate stops half way


Hi there. When you reset the gate motor, did you remember to push the test button at the end of the procedure to confirm the travel limits? Did it complete the setup without a hitch, stopping in the pedestrian position? It might be helpful to check whether the status LED is flashing as this will give you an indication of what the problem could be. If you'd like to provide your number, I can get a support technician to give you a call and run through some diagnostic procedures with you.

My Centurion D5 will intermittently reopen the gate immediately after I close it. The LED lights flash 4 times which I believe indicates an obtruction but there is no obstruction. Any thoughts as to w


Hi there. The symptoms you describe as well as the error indication (4 flashes) certainly do seem to indicate an obstruction. Try disengaging the gate, moving it back and fourth and feeling whether it sticks at any particular point. Possible causes could be: dirt or stones on the rail, bad rack joints, missing teeth in the rack, worn wheels or guide-rollers or a damaged rail. You can also try decreasing the collision sensitivity (I can send you an email with the info if you like), but please be advised that this makes the gate less sensitive to an obstruction and could pose a risk. How old is the motor, if I may ask?

You can hear my gate motor working, but the gate does not open or close. you can open and close the gate by hand. it is as if the gear does not engage


Your manual override is active. This disengages the gearbox from running the gate. You will need to release the manual override. What make and model gate motor is it?

I have a 2007 yukon and the lift gate goes up about half way and returns to the closed position. What is going on?


try removing your shocks/struts for the lift gate. once removed, check to see if they fully extend in and out of the barrel. You may have bent shocks/struts. Also, check to see there is nothing preventing the lift-gate from opening such as a bolt or acorns between the spoiler and the roof...
