This was the first thing I checked this morning. The lift gate won’t open if the glass is not closed. I tried every possible combination, but could not get the two to open simultaneously. Good news

I'm glad you had the guts to try it. I didn't want to do it with mine lest it actually work and be the cause of wrecking the roof.

Re: Liftgate DAMAGED when using remote

My condo has a low ceiling in the parking garage so I measured the liftgate rise as it opens (when I first looked at the WK2 about 3 weeks before ordering one) and was very concerned about the spoiler especially since it is mostly a cosmetic plastic thing. It looks nice but REALLY sticks up. A powered lift gate could easily get damaged in a low ceiling environment (I even tested the resistance force and it would easily damage before stopping). Since I want a loaded model I am thinking of disconnecting the powered part of the liftgate to prevent an accidental opening in my low ceiling parking garage.

I suspect the flipper glass opened first as the liftgate opened.....perhaps the flipper glass was registered as "closed" but hadn't locked closed and as the liftgate opened the flipper glass flipped open fast and first causing the jam. Hence, it is a known problem which is why the powered liftgate is disabled if the vehicle knows the flipper glass is opened. New programming to stop the liftgate from opening further if flipper glass is detected open while liftgate opening is in process.

The spoiler and powered liftgate was my one concern when I first saw the new GC (I'm pretty good at seeing issues in things right away in general) and so will have to disconnect once I get mine.

Re: Liftgate DAMAGED when using remote

Hadn't there been talk about Jeep not having flipper glass on the new 2011 GC?
