Take your $6-18 volts/ohms multi-meter that you bought at the local hardware store, auto parts store, home improvement store or WalMart type store and test for 12 volts at the solenoid. Also use the meter to check continuity of the tailgate wire harness. There is either a mechanical/electrical malfunction, or a lack of 12 volts power, or lack of ground due to faulty wires.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Okay I'll do that tomorrow. Also where the cluster of wires are that become visible when the lift is up seems to have been cut open but I can't find a bad connection
