That sounds like a dealer visit. Hopefully it's still under warranty (4 yrs/50K miles).

Definitely a dealer visit, as I think your controller is bad.

Also, it's much better if you use the remote control to open and close the tailgate. I don't know why.

The dealer just "resets" it every time and tells us there is nothing wrong. Which is true until the next time. There is no rhyme nor reason to it. Unless I'm imagining it, I think there is some kind of master reset that the dealer showed or told me about, but I don't know where it is. One time they told me all they did was disconnect the battery for a minute for a hard reset. Does anyone know anthing for sure?

Bump this thread!
I have a 2005 Navigator doing the same thing. Anyone know where this reset is? Dealer would not tell. Jerk regularly wants my $75.

It is still happening. We are now at 6 years. It often just magically fixes itself, but it is being stubborn now.
I'm doing yet another internet search, and found my old thread. Still nothing around anywhere. I forgot I even posted this.
#19 of 22 2004 navigator battery drain
May 30, 2012 (4:36 am)
my 2004 navigator drains the battery if you leave a door open for a short period of time or operate the rear lift gate (both with the key off). Any ideas on a fix?

I had the same probelm with my 08 navigator and was able to reset the module and get my lifgate working by pulling both fuses for the liftgate (one in the passenger compartment, one under the hood...the owner manual will give details). Keep them both out for a minute or two, and reinstall. After that, my liftgate worked perfectly.
#21 of 22 Lift gate and cold weather
Nov 06, 2012 (8:10 am)
My '08 apparently doesn't like cold weather. When the temperature gets around 40 or less
the lift gate will open completely and then reverse and close...won't stay open.
If I park it in the sun on a cold day, it will usually operate correctly.
Anyone experience this...any fixes?
