The Rear Liftgate Actuator motor is responsible for locking, unlocking, and opening the rear liftgate when you press the button on your SUV. The liftgate actuator incorporates a locking mechanism, electronic actuator, and switch to alert your SUV’s computer when the rear liftgate is open. The liftgate actuator is locked on the inside of the liftgate and can be accessed by removing the plastic interior panel.
If your SUV’s display is always showing the liftgate is open, if your liftgate will not lock or unlock, or if your liftgate will not open when pressing the button; a faulty Rear Liftgate Actuator is likely the problem. This complete replacement part manufactured by AA Ignition is a direct replacement for your factory actuator and will restore your liftgate’s functions.
