2016-18 UTILITY LIFTGATE FIX - $25

2016-18 Utility Liftgate Release Fix

Ford introduced a new "feature" for the 2016 Utility Liftgate.  The liftgate is always in a "locked" mode unless you use the key to open it at the liftgate or you use the release button in the ceiling console.  I have gotten a lot of complaints about how the liftgate operates and was asked numerous times if I could "fix" it so it locked and unlocked with the power door locks.

PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!

I have found a way to program the 16 Utility so the timer switch is non-functional and the Lock/Unlock Status of the Liftgate follows the door locks!! - DEALER PROGRAMMING REQUIRED

THIS IS A GREAT SOLUTION FOR THOSE EITHER WITHOUT KEYLESS ENTRY OR THOSE WITH KEYLESS ENTRY USING THE LOCK/UNLOCK/PANIC KEY FOB


FUNCTIONALITY AFTER NEW PROGRAMMING

  • Vehicle locked with power door lock switch or key fob - LIFTGATE LOCKED
  • Vehicle unlocked with power door lock switch or key fob - LIFTGATE UNLOCKED 

PRIOR TO THIS MODIFICATION THE POWER DOOR LOCKS DID NOT CONTROL THE FUNCTiONALITY OF THE LIFTGATE
