Customer Question
Happy new year Pear...

Happy new year Pear. my 2011 jeep cherokee overland has 31 k and seems to think the hatch is up. I had to drive home with the dome lights covered over and 1/2 hour later they are still on. of course this will kill the battery

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's manual for this?

Hmm no thought you would be the fix all. fyi this happened a year ago and I went in the back and did some thing. can't remember but nothing is working now

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

Maybe I better go back out in the 5 degree temp and try to move the glass and hatch a bit unless you got something else in mind. much appreciated by the way

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

Is there a charge and how much?

Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** some WD-40 with the spray wand. Open the hatch and the glass and spray the lubricant down into the latch area. Move the spray wand in and out and give it a good soak. Then firmly shut and open the hatch and glass at least 10 times firmly. What happens is dust, dirt, and moisture get down in there and make the ajar switch stick. Most often this loosens it up and no switch replacement is necessary
