Lousy Liftgate

Some 2013-2014 Ford Escape vehicles built on or before 6/12/2013 and equipped with a power or hands-free liftgate may exhibit a Liftgate Ajar warning chime, indicator message illuminated and/or a difficult-to-open or close liftgate. DTCs C2006:19, B1453 and/or U3000 may be stored in the liftgate/trunk module (LTM).

1. Measure body margins (rear panels for liftgate to vehicle body fit). See workshop manual section 501-35.

2. If margins are incorrect, adjust as needed.

3. If margins are correct, reprogram the LTM to the latest calibration using IDS release 85.02 and higher.
