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.

Need to fix door on expedition liftgate won't open


In this case it is usually necessary to remove the interior panels of the liftgate to gain access to the linkage inside. The only problem is: removal of those panels is much more difficult with the liftgate closed. Take to a professional, or risk breaking the attachment points of your panels, and associated fasteners. I usually charge around 50 to 100 dollars to get these open, then an additional charge for further work to repair the lock, latch, or linkage.

1998 Expedition Liftgate will not open, how to open it, so that latch can be repair or what ever might be broken. The glass liftgate works. Thank you Alberto


Most have an emergency button to open it...crawl in the back and look at the center of gate for a removeable insert at the center of gate ....some look small and round...others may not..It should just be a small button...just push button and gate should open...owners manual should show this...
some may not.

Replacing the switch for Liftgate Ajar on 03 Expedition


I found that if you spray some penetrating fluid (not WD-40) such as move-it or liquid wrench on the switch, it will repair the problem. You spray the fluid on the switch and open and close the gate repeatedly for about ten times and the contacts will be cleaned and working again. This also works for the doors. The switch is located in the latch mechanism so spray the fluid in that area.

The liftgate on my 2003 Ford Expedition will not open. It unlocks, the window opens perfectly, but when I pull on the handle it comes up normally, but the liftgate remains latched.


try removeing tailgate panel cover and check cables for free play if there is excess play the latch will not release first try to get behind latches and trip them off manualy the adjust yor cables dont close the gate when adjusting cables close latches by pressing them in there should be two clicks per lock then use handle to release them and keep adjusting till they function correctly it will be agrevating to adjust them but be pacatient and you will get it

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Principles of Operation
The power liftgate is controlled by the power liftgate module.
The power liftgate module receives inputs from:
  • glass position switch (determines the ajar status of the liftgate glass).
  • forkbolt switch (determines the primary position of the latch).
  • detent switch (determines the secondary position of the latch).
  • home switch (determines the power cinch status).
  • power liftgate control switch (activates the power liftgate from the interior of vehicle).
  • pinch strip switches (determines if an obstacle is detected between the pinch strip and liftgate).
  • instrument cluster module (activates and sets the options for the power liftgate).
  • optical sensor (determines the direction, travel speed and obstacle detection of the liftgate).
  • UBP serial communication link.
The power liftgate module sends outputs to:
  • liftgate motors.
  • power cinching latch system.
  • liftgate chime module.
  • body security module
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The liftgate consists of the following components:
  • liftgate window glass latch
  • door lock actuator (power liftgate only)
  • liftgate latch
  • liftgate handle
  • liftgate latch remote control (power liftgate only)
  • liftgate ajar switch
  • chime module (power liftgate only)
