Re: Rear liftgate problem !!!

All doors unlocked? Switch on lower dashboard for liftgate has been bumped to the off position?

Re: Rear liftgate problem !!!

I have problems too, mine is that it doesn't want to close. Of course when i take it in, it won't duplicate the problem. Occasionally, it won't shut, so i have to push on it hard as it's going down. Sometimes that works, other times it takes several attempts.

Re: Rear liftgate problem !!!

Took my neighbor to the grocery store and when she came out with her groceries I opened my door up and left it open with the key in the acadia and the rear liftgate would not open so I took the key out and closed the door and it opened. Dont know which one did it or if it was both. Also have noticed that when I get out and the interior lightd and headlights and taillights are still on for a few seconds it wont open until they turn off.

I have a similar problem with my rear liftgate. Took it to the dealership and they were unable to duplicate the problem.

Re: Rear liftgate problem !!!

mrzonca,
Welcome to the forum. I'm glad your problem was solved. If possible, can you describe what was wrong with the switch that caused the problem and what was done to fix it? Was your release switch defective and replaced or was there another problem?

Our members use the search function of the message board, the several months/years from now someone may have this exact problem (apparently some already have) and see this post. If you can post this information, it will be a great help to the others.

It is also helpful to post your location in your profile as well as the year, drive, model, and options of your vehicle in the signature section of your forum profile. Look at what most members have there, i.e. 2007 FWD SLE White/Titanium w/ DVD & convenience group. In this instance, you later specified you do not have a power liftgate, which means you have an SLE or SLT1 model. If you can post this model information, members don't have to guess as to what you have when trying to help you with problems on your vehicle.

If you click on the Blues Clues link in my signature, there is information on how to post this information in your profile & signature.

Life lesson: The two best days owning an Acadia are the day you buy it and the day you sell it. Our $42K Acadia lasted less than 6 years and began to fall apart: radio, hatch, water pump, power steering, TPMS, and now the transmission all within a year.
