Howdy...Margs new PT has developed a small problem. The rear liftgate touch pad no longer works. It still open with the key. I got a copy of an online manual but in it\'s 2000 odd pages, it neglects to show this touch pad. I have taken the cover panel off to have a gander, hoping to see something obvious, but alas, all looks OK. The next step would be to remove the handle and rip into it, but the handle is stuck on with double sided tape as well as nuts. So, before I take the next step, I thought I would ask if anyone else has had a similar problem. I might be looking in the wrong end of the car. Thanks in advance.
see ya

hmm .. the special ed GT tourings will be BIG problems if the central locking decides to play up like the ealier models :angry: .. still haven\'t figured out what will happen in that department .. asked Chrysler and they went BLANK :silly: .. haven\'t had Black opal home long enough to experiment AND I dread to think about it :angry: ... had enough STRESS with the 2005 still intermittant .. touch pad hasn\'t been a problem in the 2005 BUT central locking has ... think U may have to look at it from the inside .. take interior trim off etc ..... darn didn\'t get a pic when they took Plums & roses apart when she was IN warranty with tail gate wire short issues ... sorry I\'m not much help either :S

I had my one play up on my 05 GT. Luckily still under warranty at the time.

First noticed it after washing the car. Would then work fine a little while later. Put it down to water or moisture getting in.

Took it to the \"experts\" at the dealer & over the next couple of weeks replaced nearly every part of the locking mechanism apart from the switch itself. After further persistant problems they FINALLY replaced the switch. All has been good since.

Quite ironic that I\'m the one resurrecting this thread after all this time.

Here\'s my latest problem.

The touchpad button / tailgate lock has stopped working.
I pulled the rear cover off & seperated the plug to the touchpad. testing it with a multimeter (i\'m a multimeter novice) I was getting continuity when the switch was pressed. So I\'m convinced the switch is ok.
I then shorted the terminals in the plug leading to the lock. This was activating the lock.
Seeing that these both items worked independently it now has me stumped.

At the moment I am opening the tailgate with the key.
Any idea\'s?????
Thanks in advance.

though you are making contact with the ohm meter,
the switch contact could have residual dirt on the contact pads
and in circuit it isn\'t making proper contact.
If dismantlable try clearing contacts.
