Thank you. You will need to have the Liftgate/Trunk Module checked for trouble codes. The LTM communicates with the other modules in the vehicle for proper operation. The LTM can be checked for trouble codes through the test port under the drivers side of the dash. You will need a scan tool to do these tests that can communicate with the LTM. Most simple code readers will not test the LTM.
