The rear lift gate...

The rear lift gate door will not shut. it is open half way and will not shut manually, will not shut with the key or with the push button on the lift gate.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the key stripped or worn?

No, the car will unlock with the key fab. Could it be that a fuse in out?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Lexus?

Lexus(###) ###-####

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 330 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes and i do not know what to do

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I am currently reviewing your question. Is this an 2006 RX330? Is there any noise when you press the close button?

no it does not make any noise at all. It is as if the electronic portion may be "turned off"

Is there a fuse I can check? and if so, where is it located?

Yes, there should be a fuse for the power back door. Yes you can check it. However, I work at a Toyota/Lexus dealer and I can tell you that it's most likely not going to be the fuse. We replace these back door motors very very often. It is most likely your problem. Give me a minute to research your fuse location and provide you with a document.

ok - just hoping that it is a fuse and an easier fix.

Well, to be sure make sure that your Power back door cancel switch isn't turned on. I'm sure you've checked that already. The fuse is Labeled PBD and is an 30A fuse.

Ask Your Own Lexus Question

It is located in your Engine room fuse box

Ask Your Own Lexus Question

You can visually check the fuse to make sure there's no break, a better way is to use a DVOM set to reading ohms and go across the fuse (after removing it of course). You can manually close the hatch by pushing down on the hatch hard enough to overcome the motor resistance.

Ask Your Own Lexus Question

Hope its just a fuse, or you accidently knocked the cancel switch on. If not, the motor is fairly expensive and require some degree of mechanical ability to install I would recommend it be left to a professional.

Ask Your Own Lexus Question

It looks like your cancel switch may be in your glove box

Ok, can you tell me where the cancel switch is?

It looks like its in your glove box or in that general vicinity.

Ask Your Own Lexus Question

I can't remember if its called power back door main switch or power back door cancel switch. But its something to that effect. Good luck.
