Customer Question

I have a 2011 SRX Luxury. Great vehicle with 52k miles. The rear hatch will open Ok with the interior button and key fob. It will close fine with the button on the bottom of the latch. However, it won't open with the pad near the rear license plate. A few months ago, we had a problem with the rear hatch opening up by itself in the garage -especially after hand washing it.
JA: Have you checked the fob's battery?
Customer: It opens fine with the fob, just not the button by the late
JA: Are you fixing your SRX yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes nothing tried yet. I just know that I can open it every way -except with the rear rubber pad
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, everything else works great -so great my wife doesn't want to trade it in yet, LOL
