My liftgate sometimes malfunctions so that I can't open it. When that happens my remote will also not work - it will neither unlock car doors or open them. I have to manually open the car. However, the controls on my driver's door will unlock all doors except for the liftgate. When the malfunction occurs with the liftgate, sometimes my rear wipers will also not work and my inside roof lights also malfunction - they either stay on or won't come on. The only way I can open the liftgate is to open the cover on the inside panel (by reaching across from the backseat) and manually releasing the latch. I have checked the liftgate to see if there are any obstructions and there are not. It looks like the liftage properly latches on. Not sure if the liftgate has sensor...could this be a sensor problem?
