My power liftgate will not open. The car is in park and unlocked. I push the exterior button on the liftgate, but the latch will not release. I do hear a faint clicking noise indicating that the fuse is probably not blown. It seems like the latch motor is stuck. However, I am not able to locate the manual release inside of the vehicle. The liftgate will also not open automatically when using the button on the key or on the inside console. It beeps like it is going to open, but the latch does not release.
This problem began in very cold temperatures during snowy weather. Originally, we thought that the lock assembly might be frozen, but it has thawed out and still will not work.
I would like to begin by opening the liftgate manually. I have purchased access to the online manual through this website, but it does not provide details on how to open the liftgate latch manually.
have the same problem?
