Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The issue may be electrical or mechanical. You may have an issue with the latch, the drive assembly, a wiring issue, or it could be mechanical. A scan tool to read fault codes and monitor data will most likely be necessary if the issue is mechanical.

Are you able to close or move it by hand?
