2006 Liberty KJ Tailgate relocks itself
The tailgate on my 2006 Liberty Sport occasionally to often will automatically relock itself. After driving, I walk to the rear gate and hit the unlock button on any remote. As normal, the tailgate unlocks, pauses about 1 second and then soundlt relocks with a klunk. Definitely a solid electrical lock singnal heard. It appears to be timed with the flash of the parking lights associated with the operation; however, disabling the flash on the lights has no effect on the relock. So far the dealer has changed the BCM twice, the lock mechanism, some kind of terminal block, and now the whole body wiring harness, but the problem remains. Also, it appears to resolve itself if the Jeep is left parked for an hour or so before attempting to open the tailgate. (Maybe something with a sticking relay in the autolock while driving circuit?) Any ideas? This is really getting discouraging. Other than that, the Jeep is great.
