Issues with 2011 Jeep Overland Tailgate

Hi- having issues with my tailgate. I was washing the car and went to open the tailgate then the rear hatch one after the other using the FOB and now the rear hatch will open, but I can't get the tailgate to open. Any clue what's wrong??

Appreciate the help!

Angelina

maybe the glass is still open and it wont allow the automatic gate to open. I would check the glass first and go from there.

Re: Issues with 2011 Jeep Overland Tailgate

Tried... glass is shut. I opened the glass and closed it again to be sure, but nothing will allow the tailgate to open. Is there a system reset or something I can try? I don't understand what prompted it to freeze like this...

Pull the negative terminal on the battery to resett the system. Step on the brake pedal a couple times.

Have the dealer run the power liftgate module scan. I also thought there was TSB about this.

Have you tried pulling on the exterior handle twice to see if you can open it in manual mode?
