I have been having problems with the liftgate's glass popping open on it's own. The dealership I purchased my 05 Limited from replaced the entire flipper module. After replacing it, the glass continued to come open on it's own. They then found that there was a problem with the wiring. After fixing the wiring, the glass is still popping open. Has anyone had this problem? If so, how do I fix it. The problem has been "corrected" as I disconnected all of the wires. I'd really like for it to work, especially since this vehicle is only a month old (to me). Any help would be appreciated.
Sounds like you may have an exposed or loose wire leading to the module that's grounding out when you're driving. I'm guessing it only happens when you're driving? But not if the Jeep is parked and running, or key on.
What about the push button on the lift gate? Was that also replaced or at least removed and inspected?
It does it while in park and while driving. They replaced the entire module and then found a wire that was bad. They replaced it and it still opens up on it's own. I have it disconnected and hasn't done it since.
That's pretty random. If you said "only when driving", I would definately think it's a wire that's moving around when you hit bumps. Does it ever open when it's parked with the keys removed? (liftgate glass still has power when the key is off.)
I'm still hovering around the "window" button on the tailgate. I was thinking something wacky w/ the relay that's controlled by the fob. But that get's disabled when the ignition is on.
However, the lift glass can be opened from outside in any situation, (driving, parked, key on/off). The "button" and the glass latch are two seperate parts. Did they also change the button? If not, that's where I would look. If they did, I would still look there. Check all the wires to and from the button and the latch mod for any sign of damage. It's the only thing that's active in all situations.
Thanks a lot. I did try to push the button, and it wouldn't push in. Perhaps there's something wrong with the window button. I'll have to connect it all back up and see if that button works. Might be something they'll have to replace. Thanks for all of your help.
Finally, after 3 months, the problem has been fixed. The dealership I've been dealing with finally figured out that the push button for the window located on the liftgate itself was bad. The button was stuck and wouldn't come out. Glad it's finally fixed.
Was waiting to hijack and will now that OP had his issue resolved. I'm having a problem with my rear glass... it squeaks ALL the time. I can't stand it. It's like the glass isn't secure or something. Just driving down the road makes it squeak and I can't handle that annoying squeaking anymore. Anyone have any tips? I've messed around with the glass, doesn't seem to be loose or anything. I've tried to shim the glass to keep it from squeaking, but it still does. I'm going crazy - this WK has more noises than my TJ - I don't know how that's possible. Thanks.
