Lift gate closing

Whenever I open my lift gate it opens then closes on me 90% of the time. 14 overland. Anyone else having this issue.

Not here... Does it make the beeping sound as it closes, and seem to close under power like pushing the down button would do?

Or does it just sorta sag closed, where it could be the strut

Its new, I'd bitch.

Re: Lift gate closing

Probably needs something like a limit switch adjustment. Take it to your dealer before it hits someone on the head!

I was thinking more like asking the dealer to stick their head in there as it opens, then wait for the fun.
