Customer Question
I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country. I have lost all lost ( except read wiper) power to my liftgate. No beeps, no lights, no nothing. I can't open it manually at the latch or with the interior button or with key fob. Ideas on how to fix?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Consistent

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Town and Country yourself? What have you tried so far?

My husband does mechanical work. We have checked all fuses, tried resetting module to no avail. He has the latchdoor trim removed. He eventually opened with the safety latch inside of frame. But would like to fix so it works properly.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.

greetings,

This might be an issue with the power lift gate module. To be sure the vehicle will need to be checked with an advanced scanner. First we can check fuses and then next you can disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes. This might free up the module. Fuse J2 , 30 AMP

He has checked J2 and it's good.

try the battery disconnect with the negative cable. This might get it going again. really need to see if the module set codes. If the module has a problem it will set codes and possibly do this again. There might even be an update for the module. If you call the dealer with your vin they can check.

I do see these module for sale on e-bay for under 70$. I have used modules off e-bay for several applications on vehicles and have not had any major issues.

Let me know if you will try to replace the module.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
