JA: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?
Customer: No...haven't check either as I have a flat tire and waiting for roadside assistance. ..what fuse where or bulb
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: I just want to be able to drive the car without dome light after flat tire repaired
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Lincoln Mechanic should know about your Lincoln?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you may have a bad ajar switch. The ajar switch not opening when the liftgate closes during a power cycle could cause the module to continue to try moving it, the dome lights staying on when you try to close it manually do point to a bad ajar switch or wiring issue.

When you close it manually it does stay closed?
