Re: Luxury Group Upgrades
The power lift gate has all kinds of components.
At its most simple, if the wiring harness is correct at the top of the back hatch, you should be able to provide power to the lift motor. But actually getting it to lift is much more of a challenge:
1. Inside button in cargo area. Clearly this would need the button and the cargo area inside cover panel. Presuming the harness is already extended to this spot, you may not need to program the chassis control module.
2. Front button by the rear view mirror. This would need either a new plastic bezel with the correct number of button, or if there's a blank there, just the button assembly. I'm guessing this might require chassis control module programming.
3. Key fob. Obviously, you need a new fob for this. And definitely programming of the remote entry module.
4. Outside hatch handle. If you just unlatch, it triggers the auto open feature. I don't know if this behavior is built into the lifter or the latch.
I don't know, dude. I'm guessing a fully operational power lift gate is going to be tough. Even assuming that the harnesses have been extended to the right spots, which is NOT certain if the power lift gate isn't available for your trim level.
