Power liftgate not functioning

Power liftgate is not functioning well on 2015 Jeep GC overland. Whenever I try to use button or any methods to open/close the tailgate, it says something like "power liftgate unavailable temporarily. Try to close it manually". So I did that, but it is happening all the time now. It tries to open the tailgate like an inch or two but fails to do that with beeping sounds.

Is there any way to fix this? or should I just go to dealer.

Since it's brand new, if it were mine, I'd take it to the dealer. Let them figure it out. May be something very simple or very complicated.

Seems like I saw here somewhere that a weak gas cylinder on the right side can cause this.
Have a nice day. Gary
