Power Liftgate Initialization

NOTE: The power liftgate may not operate correctly under the following conditions:

  • A low voltage or dead battery
  • A disconnected battery
  • Repairs/adjustments have been made to the power liftgate rod, power liftgate motor, liftgate hinges or liftgate striker

If any of these conditions has occurred, the power liftgate must be reinitialized.

  1. NOTE: Battery power must be removed from the Liftgate/Trunk Module (LTM) for 20 seconds before the LTM will enter the initialization mode.

    Disconnect the battery or remove the LTM fuse(s).

  2. Wait 20 seconds and reconnect the battery or reinstall the LTM fuse(s).
  3. If liftgate is not already in the fully closed position, manually close and fully latch the power liftgate.
  4. NOTE: Make sure the power liftgate system is turned ON in the message center before performing this step.

    NOTE: If the power liftgate does not open during this step, refer to the SYMPTOM CHART to diagnose the inoperative power liftgate.

    Power open the power liftgate by using the key fob or control switch.

  5. Once the power liftgate is fully open, close the power liftgate by using the key fob or control switch.
