Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.

In order to determine what is failing with your lift gate the first thing your going to need to do is scan the system with a full scan tool and retrieve the B code that should be setting when the gate failed. Are you able to do this?

No guess I'll have to take it in?

Unfortunately with out know the fault code anything I post would be a guess at best. If you can get the scan done I can help you with this.
