How to fix tailgate sensor

Asked by Apr 15, 2017 at 07:12 PM about the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan Crew

Question type: Maintenance & Repair


My Dodge Caravans tailgate sensor stopped
working in the middle of the night. This meant that
all the lights turned on and drained the battery as it
thinks that the tailgate is open.

I am sure that there a part that I can buy and
change it. Do you know how I can go about fixing
this? I am open to hear other solutions.

????? The courtesy lights and liftgate ajar light may illuminate intermittently. Our technicians tell us that switching the wires at the liftgate ajar switch connector will correct this condition. ?????
