2015 grand cherokee power lift gate

I'm wondering if anyone has run into a situation where the power lift gate was accidentally activated in a garage causing the gate to hit the garage ceiling or door. It's a concern of mine because my previous 2011 jeep manual lift did hit the ceiling when fully opened.

Re: 2015 grand cherokee power lift gate

I have the same concern. I carry a hitch mounted bike rack on the back of mine. Not so much concerned about accidentally engaging but I'm afraid I'll hit the button in my pocket or opening it with the remote without thinking about it. On my wife's vehicle it can be turned off but not sure it can on the Jeeps.

Re: 2015 grand cherokee power lift gate

Thanks for your input. I have spoken to a Jeep technician and was told it cannot be deactivated, but the door should stop when it touches without hitting with a lot of force. I plan to work around this problem by installing a rubber cushion along the inside door and ceiling of my garage just in case it does ever hit.
