Power lift gate opens, then shuts

I have been having trouble with my power lift gate. It will open to about 99%, then automatically reverse and close again. I suspect it is binding on something and closing as a safety feature, but there is really nothing obviously wrong.

Once I was in a hurry and ducked under it before it was finished opening, only to find it closing on the back of my head 5 seconds later.

It only does this intermittently. The dealer is sympathetic, but will not do anything about it unless I can replicate it for them.

Has anyone had this happen, and successfully fixed it?

And there's nothing blocking the lift-gate from opening all the way?

This was happening to mine aswell, also when it would close it would not lock I would have to push on the gate to lock it, this started just over a year after I bought it, I took it to the dealer. There is a TSB they have for this. Since they did the the TSB, I have not had it happen since. This is the TSB they applied 08-062-11
