The handle that opens the lift-gate (rear door) no longer works. (I can still open it with the key). This handle actually triggers a switch which sends power to a solenoid that opens the latch. I tested the solenoid with a motorcycle battery and found it works. The license plate lights also work. So I assume that either the switch in the handle or wiring somewhere is the cause.
I cannot figure out how to gain access to the switch in the handle without damaging it. I also cannot seem to source a repair manual for 2004 Caravan locally.
Alternatively, perhaps it has something to do with the keyless entry system. When I open the locks with the keyless entry I believe it enables the circuit that allows the handle (switch) to power the solenoid.
Much appreciative of assistance.
have the same problem?
