I am in need of some semi-urgent assistance. Was detailing the Jeep for a couple hours, and had the liftgate open for 20-30 minutes while I did all door jams and engine bay. Went to close it and nothing...tried it from the overhead button, rear button and key fob. Nothing.
So I "closed" it manually and it will not latch/secure the tailgate. Tried to put it in reverse, then drive, then park and open/close...and it just stays open!
Since it is opening, and the rear cargo lights illuminate and the dash notification shows it in red as open, I do not think it is a fuse issue. Am I wrong?
The next step is doing a (-) battery terminal reset? If I do this, should I leave the tailgate in the open position since that is what still functions? Or the "closed" way with the latch not engaged?
Any help is greatly appreciated...it is going into the dealer this week, but I am more worried about being able to lock the rear...and my full LED interior stays on for 15-20 mins (didn't time it...but seemed longer than usual)
