Agree with above. There was a problem with mine as well. The gate required a new latch and the hydraulic mechanism after which it was completely fixed. Over a year now. NO new problems.

I believe there are one or more service bulletins out on the tail gate issue, so you are not alone. I have seen a vehicle with this issue. The bullitin states adjust latch/ do not replace. We tried to adjust 4 times and ended up installing a new latch to remedy.

SOURCE: My rear tail gate latch

more likely than not the latch has closed some how if you have some one hold the the handle to open the tailgate you can open the latch by hand with a screw driver if your not sure what it should look like look at another door latch in the open position very simple to do and you cant hurt anything doing it this way

Change light bulbs on my fiesta zetec 05 . I have a problem after replacement my tail gate light stay on have I put the right bulbs in


What lamps were you having a problem? So there is a lamp on your dash that says tail gate is open? There is usually a switch or sensor for that?
Maybe I misunderstood your problem?
If the tail gates lamps at the rear are staying on, no matter what you do, I'd have to check wiring diagrams for that lamp control.

obviously a problem with the auto mechanism , is there a sensor located , see your owners manual, in a particular area that has to bee kept clear and you may have inadvertantly placed something over the sensor , just guess as something must be telling the tailgate to shut , with the age of vehicle is it still covered under makers warrenty ? i'll look into the sensor thing

How do I change license plate light on a 2005 jeep grand cherokee


Remove the light cover on the tail gate. The easiest thing I found would probably work would be some rubber ended tongs (like test tube holder) and pull the bulb out. I removed all the plastic from the tail gate and poped the handle cover off (I would advise against that!) I replaced mine with LEDs so I won't do it again. But I'm almost %100 sure that it would come out with rubber grip tongs. Good luck!

2004 Mercury Monterey tail gate handle came completely off. The left side's guide is in place, but the right side is retracted - hence can't just put it back in. Any ideas?


Open tail gate. Use the access square inside - pull cable to open tail gate. Remove interier panel - 2 bolts plus 2 screws (2 bolts on handle and 1 screw each side), pull remainder out of guide clips. Now have full access to locking mechanism. Identified a retaining spring had come loose sending guides to shift left (exterior point of view). Place hand in tail gate and move guides over and put spring in place to retain. verify it works and put back together. Handle is the trickiest part as the bolts have to go through the interior panel and afix to the metal tail gate.

Tail gate stuck closed


Hi;The latch/ouside handle is held on by four bolts on the inside of tailgat. Remove the four bolts and the handle should come clear so you can see the mechanism. Your on you own now.
