Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Are you able to reach the latch to do any electrical testing?

The latch is inside the liftgate and locks the liftgate to the body.

Can you remove the liftgate trim to get inside the liftgate https://www.dropbox.com/s/g2o9a42kw5g6v89/liftgatetrim.pdf?dl=0
