2007 GMC Acadia SLT: the liftgate to close the hatch..key fob..console

Resolved Question:

My 2007 GMC Acadia SLT has a power liftgate. I am no longer able to press the button on the liftgate to close the hatch. I must use the key fob or the button on the console.
Please advise.

HelloCustomerfrom what you described i would replace the push button or pad for the lift gate. If everything else is working like the key fob and the console button that's what i would replace. If there were a problem with the module or motor then it wouldn't matter which button you pressed the lift gate would not open. I have replaced a few for being non function when button was pressed.
