GCL - "lift gate open" on display...not open though.... wheres the switch?
So weird problem just started on the jeep yesterday in the city. 99 GC limited and I have had it for about four years now. It has the overhead console that displays the temp, compass...etc etc and also shows when a door or lift gate is open when the vehicle is running. Well anyway I just got into the city yesterday and all of a sudden at the lights the truck is beeping away and I look up to the overhead console and it reads "liftgate open". I figure no biggie just not latched proper so I get out close it tight and drive on. About two blocks later its coming off and on every few seconds...liftgate open... then ok....then open again. Did this about 10-15 times randomly an then on the drive home it was fine?
Never did it on the highway only once we hit the stop and go traffic of the city. Anyways this has never happened and I triple checked the lift gate and the glass hatch and everything was fine. Now I assume there is a door jamb switch somewhere that senses when the hatch is actually open right? Problem Is I cannot find one anywhere so I am wondering if it is internal in the hatch maybe by the handle? Called the local dealer and the parts dept couldn't tell me if there was one or where it was located. Any help would be much appreciated it is not biggie to see the message but the annoying triple beep beep beep that comes along with the message is enough to drive a man to drinking ecspecially when it comes on five times a block in rush hour! Thanks in advance for any help
