: trunk door problem

10-25-10, 02:11 AM
good day to all of you guys,

i have a 2007 escalade that has a problem with its back door(trunk door), it opens half way and shuts, as if the sensor feels some obstruction when there is nothing.

could it be a faulty sensor or some hydraulic problem?

i appreciate your input.

I had this issue - I think the hydraulics were wearing out and it was not strong enough to lift it, or because it was working so hard, it mis-read that as an obstruction. Covered under warrantee, of course, if you still have one.

Thanx for the reply.
i took the car yesterday to a local workshop and the guy used the electronic fault detecting device and found that some wiring are faulty and asked me to bring it back sometime later.
Now how do u know that it's a hydraulic problem? i mean , can i verify this myself? because i dont want to take it to the dealer while it's not under warranty.

I did not verify that, sorry, the dealer did under warrantee.
