I'm new to here, hopefully I'm posting at the right place and thanks for any help in advance.
My 2005 ford focus wagon tailgate cannot open suddenly, I cannot open the lock with the remote, cannot open it with the button on the dashboard, and cannot open it with the button on the tailgate, the only way I can open it is inserting my key to the key hole on the tailgate. The remote works for all other 4 doors, and I can hear a tita-tita sound under the dashboard when I click the tailgate button on the remote.
After google for long time, I think problem is my tailgate lock motor. I spent another two hours to remove my plastic trim on my tailgate, took a close look at my tailgate lock motor, cannot see any problem, unplug the cable and then plug it again, problem is still there.
Anyone could tell me how to detect/confirm the lock motor get broken and I have to replace it to a new one? and, how to replace it, any tip? Or, I might be totally wrong, there should be another problem?
Thanks a lot!
