Problem: The power lift gate (hatch) will
intermittently unlock and open when shifted into Reverse.
Details: First, the Tech-Assist consultant
suggested using a scan tool to check the activation status in the
power lift-gate module to confirm if module did receive a signal
(from the handle switch, interior switch or key fob). It was
receiving a signal to open the lift-gate from all sources.
Next, the consultant suggested checking the BCM trunk release PID
data. It was switching from pressed to not pressed on its own.
The next step was to unplug all the door switches. The BCM was
still receiving a signal to open.
Confirmed Repair: The Tech-Assist
consultant suggested opening the BCM for inspection. When he did,
the tech found evidence of water intrusion and some corrosion on
the circuit board.
