Problem began by hatch not powering down and latching. So we manually closed the hatch and the latch would not latch. After applying grease to latch we got it to latch manually. Now will not unmatched or power open. Mark

I apologize for the delay.

Double check that fuses 6 (10 amp) and 3 (10 amp) are both o.k.There is also a 30 amp fuse J (which may be located in a separate fuse box possibly under hood) make sure its o.k.

These fuses power the automatic back door control unit.If any of these fuses are blown this can cause this fault here.

If the fuses are o.k. the next step that has to be done is to have the fault codes read out/checked to see what codes are set.From there the codes are diagnosed to locate and repair the fault.This may be an issue with the automatic back door control unit itself as I have seen fail before needing replaced on some models.The codes will need checked using a scan tool that can communicate with all computer in your vehicle.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.

Thanks Pete
