I spent 20 minutes this morning trying to get my liftgate to work. Whenever I hit any of the buttons (on the dash, in the back, and on the fob) there would be 2 quick beeps and nothing would happen. Usually you get 4 long tones alerting you that the gate is moving. I tried manually closing the gate and it wouldn't latch.
The user manual says that there is a snap-in panel that can be removed to manually latch it, but I couldn't figure out how to take that off without ruining the panel. I eventually just kept slamming the gate shut (i have a short temper when it comes to this kind of thing) and it latched and is now working normally.
Clearly the way I did it was not the right way. I was wondering if any of you have had this issue and if you did how did you solve it? Is this a fluke thing or should I go talk to Jeep about it? Unfortunately even if I do talk to them I don't know what caused it and its working now, so replicating the problem may be difficult.
