    2017 explorer Ltd lift gate

    My lift gate works manually, with remote fob, and with lift handle, but will not operate with foot motion under rear bumper. I tried the dash control in both manual and auto mode...nothing! Any ideas? Yes...I do have the option.. lol.

    Did it work before? Or never worked? I don't know if the motion sensor has a fuse specific to it, also make sure there is no obstruction in front of the sensor.

    It worked fine before. Ford says it may have been damaged and refuses to replace it.

    I'd crawl under it and look at this part # 14F680. Looks like it's cheap to replace if need be.

    Sadly, it is the motion detector.. about $380 parts and labor.

    Yay!!! After two weeks, Ford decided that my defective foot operated liftgate and rear wiper motor were legitimate claims and completed the replacements on 2/5/2020. My thanks to Green Ford of Greensboro, NC.
