When using remote or pushing button to open or close lifgate it will close and then re-open. Only way to keep closed is if you turn off button and use manual mode. Also when in manual mode will try and open with clicking noise and wont stop until you lock the doors. This happens whether use use buttons or remote.
Took back to the dealer and they said they made an adjustment to the rear trim and it worked. brought home and started acting up gain. Also found in the user manual that the gate may malfunction in extrem weather and recommends going to manual. the weather in Atlanta has been extemely hot. Have owned this vehicle for two weeks

That comment conserns me and makes me think this is not safe

Sorry I took song long to respond. What they found is that the Vinyl plate or treshold was not installed properly.
Some of the vinyl contacts were bent over and not inserted into the slots which when the temperature was in the 90's and 100 range would cause the contacts to raise the plate and in turn cause the gate to open back up thinking something was in the way. Hard to explain. Anyway they have orderd a new plate and should be in by tihs weekend. I'm very pleased in the way my dealer respsonded to my problem.

installing new threshold today. Will let you know if that fixes problem. By the way, if you have a flat or your tire pressure goes down more than ten pounds the tire sensor puts a message on the display. Oonly way to remove the error message is to have the dealer reprogram your computer at a cost of $85. Not good
