hey how are you,I will try to help with this issue

this is how the system work,no relay ,we have a bcm, there is no fuse for lift gate we have switch,then bcm then latch

NOW THERE IS FUSE FOR BCM IN THE I/P PANEL FUSE BOX,LABELED BCM NUMBER #20 FUSE A 10 AMP ,CHECK THAT FIRST AND WE GO FROM THERE

MOST CASES IT IS THE SWITCH OR BCM BUT WE HAVE TO TEST

2009 Chevy Truck Equinox fwd V6-3.6L

Save Article

Rear Hatch/Gate Description and Operation The liftgate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the liftgate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the liftgate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch.

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do you have a test light & or power probe for testing ?

Did you scan it with factory scanner or equivalent to read faults codes from vehicle modules including bcm ?

LETS START HERE AND WE GO FROM THERE

Please let me know

Thank You
