Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

My Gate opens a bit, then stops & closes itself. Sometimes after a few attempts it will open fully. Only does this in the early morning and only started recently. Is it temperature/moisture related?

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.

SOURCE: Lift gate of 2007 Mercury Monterey won't work

Do Not take it to the dealer !!! There is a recall on the liftgate module and when I took mine in they "crashed" the module. They said it was may problem, wanted $500 to fix it and the problem was bad 'Struts'. They should be reoplaced as a pair for around $60

SOURCE: I have a 2008 Dodge

your battery is definately finished and as far as the light is concerned i would have it inspected and replaced.normally there is a switch on the tailgate that is not too expensive to replace.as for could the light be the problem ,i doubt it as the light i believe shuts off when you turn off the ignition.if it does stay on than yes it could be the culprit.i would also have the alternator checked at the same time to make sure it is charging the battery.

I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee that leftgete is not opening what can be the problem .."? The motor is working but is not lefting up.


Attempt to open manually. With the gate open use the remote to close. If the support pistons lose their gas pressure the gate will close automatically but not have the force to open Replace the gas piston on the passenger side.

If something is blocking the sensor will also prohibit the lift gate from opening.

Hope this helps?.

Out of nowhere the gate light came and started binging. I've tried opening it and shutting it. Nothing works.. The glass rattles on the gate.. Tried tightening everything still no relief


The latch mechanism is defective. It is not getting to the second "closed all the way" position. It has two parts to the latch mechanism that allow it to catch.."safety part" and "closed" part. The micro switch in the latch mechanism is informing you the second "closed" latch has not fully engaged.

What could be wrong? Our Gemini gate motor works well for some time, but then all of a sudden just go backwards when it should close the gate. It just revers with each attempt to let it go forward till at...


You could have dirty photo cells or some obstruction that the photocells are picking up that triggers the safety mechanism to reopen the gate so that no one gets hurt.

Extreme weather conditions (heat and cold) can damage the electronics in the photo cells too.

Are the batteries low on the transmitter?

Typically, photo cells are (or should be) wired to the control board so that it will stop the gate or barrier during the closing cycle should there be a problem- and should fully open again- just like on automatic garage door openers; it's the exact same principal.

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.

Liftgate will not stay open. When you push button it opens fully, but then immediately closes


HilAry when the lift gate goes to the open position does it make a grinding noise when it reaches the fully opened position and then closes, If so the gear driven assembly may have had a tooth broken on one of the gears and has striped out causing the gate to fall back down. If this is not the case meaning there is no grinding noises coming from the gate then you have a ecm module that operates the functions of the gear driven unit telling it when to stop and go down. If this is the problem you might want to take it to the dealership to program the new unit. I hope this helps.

Rear door does not close


Look at the door's locking mechanism. Is the Latch Gate in the down position? Is the Door Mechanism properly tightened to the door? These are Torx/Hex head bolts. Tighten these if needed.
If the Latch Gate is down:
1. Unlock the door.
2. Lift up/out on the Door Handle as if you were opening the door.
3. Use a screwdriver to lift the Latch Gate so it lifts the Gate up and out of the way.
Alot of these Gates have plastic coverings that sometimes split and stick or cause the door mechanism to jam. Inspect the Door Mechanism for anything that could be causing it to jam. Using a pair of needle nose pliers remove any of this split plastic (if so equipped) pulling as much of it off the Latch Gate.
Use WD40 with the red spraying hose on and stick it as many openings you can and lubricate as much of the Door Mechanism as you can.
Check the operations (plural) of the Door Mechanism, Opening and Closing the Gate using the screw driver to push in the Striker Gate causing the Latch Gate to rotate back down into position. Repeat... checking for the Latch Gate to Release Up (on it's own) when you "open" the door. If it doesn't, then there is either jammed or a return spring is broken.
Have you dented or distorted the Door and / or Door Mechanism in the process of trying to slam the door close? You will have to either bend the the door area back to as close to possible the original shape. Use the other door on the other sides as a guide on this. You may have to replace the Door Mechanism itself, as when they are malfunctioning and are slammed (over and over) it could break the Mechanism itself. If the Mechanism is broke, you will have to remove and replace the entire mechanism.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information of questions. Feel free to conatct me at FixYa.com!

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...
