Question about 2006 Lincoln Navigator

Open Question

My power tail gate doesn't work on my 2006 Navigator. I;ve tried several simple things to do like clean the door latches but nothing works. I was told at the dealer that its probably the main gate switch located above the windshield. The owners manual says that it is controlled by the #5 relay but when I open the fuse box, there is no #5 relay there. This problem also causes my puddle lights to stay on, the outside temperature does not show up on the display and the power door locks do not lock when the car is put into drive. What else could cause this problem?

Sounds like the sensor/switch that detects if the door is closed or open is faulty, you can get the part from the dealership and replace it yourself or take it into the dealership or any repair shop and have them check it out and fix it.

SOURCE: 2003 navigator security system. Nothing

Are you check fuse and relays? This vehicle has the FORD PATS key based engine disabling system, and it is currently engaged. The only way to "reset" the system is at Ford. This is not good. Troublesome system, and not an uncommon issue by a long shot.

However, it can be disabled using the bypass module, this is designed to momentarilly allow the engine to remote start by sending a proper coded pulse to open the fuel rail passlock injector cut off circuit. The output from an alarm/remote starter would then shut down the pulse, once it has detected the engine has engaged, and preserve the integrity of the PATS system. That is it's designed purpose.

I can not speak about a damaged PATS system, like if a thief has destroyed it, because I do not get into this part of FORD'S security application.

Hope this helps.

The simple solution for now is to take a jumper wire and reverse the polarity on the motors and the windows will go back up. This will also help to diagnosis the problem as well as to letting you know if its the motors or a short. It sounds to me that there is a short to the main switch that is interfering with the rear window as well. Try checking the wires where they enter the door in the jamb its a bit of a pain in the rear but that is where i go after verifying that the switches and fuses are okay. there is a lot of rubbing that occurs there and it is likely that this is where you will find a short. also check the rear drivers side door, the way these are wired if it is grounded to short there it well effect other windows.

YJ wrangler door wont close

Start out by checking the latch mechanism on the door. Use a screwdriver to "trip" the latch with the door open, then pull on the screwdriver against the latch gate. If it doesn't hold then you may have a bad latch (the springs in the latch can go bad over time). You can also try spraying penetrating oil (PB Blaster) into the latch and again using a screwdriver to trip the latch, then open with the handle, and repeat several times to work the oil into the mechanism and free it up (this trick also sometimes works with the springs on wiper arms that have lost tension). If the penetrating oil trick works, think about spraying dry lube or white lithium grease into the latch to help prevent it from happening again. If the door is misaligned, consider new hinge bushings, a misaligned door can cause damage to the door, and put tension on the door latch in a direction that puts pressure on the latch that it wasn't designed for.

2004 gmc sierra 2500 hd tail gate wont shut with out slamming it hard 3 or 4 times and sometimes falls open what the F

Look around to see if there's anything impeding the movement of the gate. If there's nothing impeding the movement, slowly close the gate until the latches closes up against the latch anchor points (one on each side of the gate). One of these latches may be stuck in the closed position or partially closed causing them to not allow you to shut your gate. Or the could be stuck open and the ratchet teeth (the bumps on the inside of the latch that are suppose to snag when closed) may be worn or broken. If that's the case, you'll need to remove the panels for your gate in order to get into and behind the latch. Also try spraying some lithium grease into the latch to see if that helps. Don't use WD-40

Open the tail gate.

Bad news, probably rusted like the one I had, you have to remove the panel from inside by prying the little push tabs in the middle out. Then try to move the latch from the inside of the door, you will see how it works with the cover off. Be sure you unlock the door before you try to pry the latch back!

Lift gate is closed but still reading ajar. also can't set the alarm because of this.

replace the lift gate/door ajar switches, they are located inside the tail gate on the left and right latch assemblies.
