Pop off the 2x2 cover on the gate. there is a wire towards the back. Pull it to the right. It should open. My wire snapped, so I had to push a notch so that a small metal bar with a hole can been seen if you can work thru that two inch hole stick a screw driver in it pull it to the right tailgate will open. Than take off back panel you will see a bar that slides, place handle back in a slide bar so it fits in the grove on the handle. NOW for the important part take wire and wrap around the bar so that it doesn't slide again. It should be fix. Took me about 15 minutes. I am a 54 yr old female so it's not that hard.

The liftgate handle broke


It is possible to open from the outside. Remove the plastic piece that broke off from the outside of the tailgate. Use a penlight and you will see the mechanism. Get a small screwdriver and place into the hold...You can feel it spring when you have it in the right place...Push down on the screwdriver to make the mechanism pull the release cable. Make sure the vehicle is unlocked..It should work...My mechanic can open it in 10 secs with this method.

My passenger's door open indicator is on but the door is closed. Where is the indicator located? 2005 freestar. Thanks


Normal Operation When any door or the liftgate is opened, the ajar switch provides a ground signal to the smart junction box (SJB). When the door or liftgate is closed, the ajar switch opens, removing the ground signal. The SJB uses the multiple inputs from the ajar switches to determine whether the doors or the liftgate are in the open or closed position. The SJB then provides a message to the instrument cluster over the communication network. The message center uses this information to display the door/liftgate ajar message.

I suspect your door switch is not closing all the way.

take negative side of battery off before starting then open the rear tailgate and remove the inner panel and then you can see what the problem is and on the Ford vans I have owned it was just the clip and you can put it back on use gloves because it can be sharp edges in behind those panels
