2008 GMC Yukon XL – The rear door will not automatically

Customer Question

2008 GMC Yukon XL – The rear door will not automatically open. Using the remote the unlock motor runs but the door does not open, then the unlock motor relocks. Pressing the rear button on the door unlocks the door and immediately relocks. I can open the rear door if I press the rear button and pull at the same time. I have to manually close the door, pushing the close button does not do anything. The motor that actually moves the door never moves. I have checked the UNLCK1 & 2 FUESES, LCK1 & 2 FUSES, OBS DET FUESE, LIFTGATE RELEASE FUSE, and the J Case74 – Power Liftgate Module (Looks the same as the others, could not get this out and did not want to damage). Where should I look next?

Cam - Went out to try to move the rear door (lift gate) today and it worked. Tried it with both remote and button. Not sure what is going on - i will contact you if the problem re-occurs. Thanks Andy
