Customer Question

My 2007 Cadillac Escalade tailgate is not opening and closing. It opens a bit and then just stops and has to be opened manually. I tried purchasing a second hand motor and module but the mechanic is telling me it needs to be programmed. I don't know if this is true.

Hello, my name is Bobby. Can you tell me if the motor starts making noise as it tries to open?

Hi, I'm Norman. Yes it makes a weird noise like it is straining to open.
