Hi folks! Hoping someone can point me in the right direction for this issue. It is intermittant, sometimes the rear hatch opens and closes without issue, while other times it will only move part way before halting. Has anyone encountered this before?

Mine does that- the scan says something about a motor/encoder failure on the rear hatch strut motors. Expensive to fix, so I'm not worried about it for now.

I can vouch for the fact they are expensive. I had a failure during my extended warranty period,so no pain.Mine started to make unnatural noises when operating.LOL

Heh, you guys aren't kidding. Assuming the issue is with one or both of the powered liftgate struts, they seem to price out between $450 and $550 for the pair. Pretty sure I can manage the install on my own tho I will have to see what is involved in the process.
