The good old Lift Gate wont Lock fix.

The fix is, Buy a New one

Very easy to install, after taking off the Wiper Motor.

I took off the Piston to get it out,No big deal. But i didnt want to take apart the new Assembly to get it back in, 4 bolts, disconnect the wire plug, it comes right out. With it out the Lock assembly went right in, Remember i all ready had the Whipper Arm off drying after painting.

It would be faster without the wiper motor in the way.

a lot of guys on FTE have basically taken it apart - lubed it and gotten the original to work. I am going to try that first before replacing the entire assembly. Wish me luck...

I tried that, Didn't work,

Yrs of opening and closing that heavy A*S Lift Gate messes up locks. Theres all kinds of posts about none-working Lift Gate Lock on this and other Truck Sights.

did you happen to notice if yours had this problem:
every time I get the car washed, it shows door ajar for several hours.

Take the Lift Gate Molding off and check the door ajar sensors where they lock in to the locks and then the wire connections and check/Replace the Molding.
