SOURCE: lift gate does not work in 2004 mit endeavor

This is due to the microswitch inside the glass hatch failing. It will not let you open the door because it is unsure if the glass is open or not.

Here is how to verify this:

Manually open the glass hatch.
Remove the two philips screws from the cover on the back of the handle area, and unscrew the plastic plug with the slot in it.
You should now be able to remove the cover.
You will see the harness coming off the glass handle going to a connector. Unplug this white two wire connector.
Your rear hatch should now open normally, just without glass opening.

To repair this, you will need to replace the glass hatch handle. It is a dealer-only part, and the cost is about $35.

To replace it, simply remove the 2 10mm nuts behind it (visible with the cover off that you just removed) and replace the handle and plug it back in.
Now all functions will work.

If you have any questions, just ask :)

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to make sure that your fuse is not blown. Check your fuse box diagram for the location. If the fuse is fine, you may have a bad switch. There could be a loose wire or a bad connection to the switch.

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

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.

GATE LIGHT WON'T TURN OFF


Probably a lift gate latch, the switch that turns the light on in the dash is part of the latch, also check the wiring inside the rubber tube at the top of the lift gate door when it's open, could be a broken wire in there

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.

2008 suburban Stuck Lift Gate Lock


I have a 2008 Suburban with the power liftgate disabled. I have had the power latch stop working, and the BCM report that the rear access open when it is closed (both gate and glass). Somehow the liftgate module thinks the gate is open, so I cannot open the gate at all, and the latch and rear wiper will not work. To reset the control module I pulled the liftgate fuse (#20) in the instrument panel fuse box, turned the car on, off, reinstalled fuse, turned car on, unlocked doors using drivers side switch, and the power latch will function again - at least for a while.

Liftgate on 2005 uplander won't open


The locking mechanism on the rear lift gate for the Chevy Uplander has some plastic and rubber-coated parts that can get jammed. If you can pull back the panel from the inside top near the glass, you can reach down and try to spray some silicone lubricant into the lock. This could help get those parts unstuck so they spring back when you pull on the handle latch from the outside. Once you get the rear hatch open, I recommend taking out the locking mechanism and thoroughly lubricating it. Your rear lift gate will start to release very easily from then on.

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.
