Recommended Posts

JUST BOUGHT A 1999 4.6 VOGUE. ALL IS FINE EXCEPT THE TAILGATE WILL OCCASIONALLY NOT OPEN. I'VE REPLACED FUSE 15

INCASE OF HAIRLINE CRACKS AND HAVE FITTED A NEW TAILGATE PUSH SWITCH. WHEN DRIVING, THE DOOR LOCKS WILL OCCASIONALLY CLOSE.

THEY WILL OPEN FROM WITHIN OR VIA THE KEY FOB BUT AT THIS TIME THE TAILGATE REMAINS LOCKED. AFTER SEVERAL HOURS THE TAILGATE WILL OPERATE NORMALLY AGAIN. :(

The locking or unlocking can often be related to a short somewhere. Most common location will be where the wires come across from the drivers door to the door frame.

Tailgate is more likely to be a stiff mechanism or lazy actuator. A good session with the oil can should be your start point.
