Electrical problem with tail gate

Hi I just received my 2012 Jeep Cherokee overland and already I have a problem.
The lift gate only opens 18 inches, have to manually open it after that.
Also it has to be closed manually, button or key fod wont close it.
any suggestions?

Re: Electrical problem with tail gate

It may be the PLGM which is integrated into the drivers side strut. IIRC there is a tsb or rrt or recall for liftgate concerns... Not sure how easy it will be for you but I suggest getting it into the dealer as no matter what is said on here it will need to be diagnosed by the dealer whom will replace the parts. Good luck!

BTW, its unfourtunatly that this was your first post but welcome to the furum, hopefully the rest of your ownership goes a bit smoother than this!
