Liftgate closing problem

Hi all
Need help and advice.
01 WJ Liftgate latches not closing door remains open.
Latches I've oiled and rotate fine with screwdriver.But will not latch on closing.
I've searched and only found issues on Liftgate not opening.Is this just an adjustment?
Thanks in advance

Re: Liftgate closing problem

Not heard of this before, but if both sides are not latching, i would suspect an adjustment problem or sticking cable. Attached the adjustment procedure for the latch rod.
