tailgate won't open when hot?

Anyone had this happen to them? It's only happened to me twice so far this year, but when my jeep's tailgate just would not open after it's been sitting out in direct sunlight in 100+ degree temps. Like I said, it's only happened twice and it's a minor annoyance. Seems like the heat is messing with the sensors or something. The tailgate begins to work just fine again after getting in and driving it around for a few minutes.

I've seen plenty of 100+ degree heat here in Phx and no problems so far.

Yep, twice so far to me. I'm in northern VA, hot and humid. Worked fine as soon as I started it.
