Lincoln MKX Power Lift Gate Problem

I bought a 2009 Lincoln MKX in March. The power lift gate problem occurred in May. It is an intermittent problem which typically occurs if I don't check to make sure the gate has stayed shut. I had an 08 MKX with the same problem. I have contacted Lincoln Customer Service about this problem and they have informed me that they are unaware of the issue. However a quick google took me to the Ford Edge Forum where there are many complaints about the same occurrence going back to early 2008. I called my dealer about the problem and was told to bring the car in the next time it happens. I explained that the problem is intermittent. The reply I got was "if it's a problem with the wipers, bring it in.". Right now I have a problem. I am hoping that this video will help to place the responsibility for fixing the problem where it belongs, with Ford so that they have the problem. UPDATE Nov 18th 2009 I may have solved the problem due to the help from other owners who have experienced the same problems. I did the following things; 1) I deactivated the power liftgate, 2) Switched off the engine and then 3) Restarted the engine 4) reactivated the power liftgate. This seems to have solved the problem. Clearly it's a computer malfunction and resetting the power liftgate seems to have done the job. I guess the question still remains "Why didn't Lincoln Tech Support know this?". The gate has operated flawlessly since the reset but will it stay that way and when will it happen again and what will I have stored in my cargo area and what will happen to it if the liftgate fails to remain closed once again? The problem re-occurred last month Aug 2010. It only happened once and in the same location as this video. But I'm keeping a very close watch.

2015 Lincoln MKX Concept First Look
2015 Lincoln MKX Concept First Look The Lincoln Motor Company unveiled the MKX Concept at Auto China 2014 in Beijing. The Lincoln MKX Concept hints at a global SUV that will become the third of four all-new Lincoln vehicles due by 2016. It is designed to capture the attention of consumers worldwide. This execution communicates adaptability to different road conditions, combined with crafted execution and attention to detail. Defined by an aerodynamic, sloping teardrop roofline, the Lincoln MKX Concept's modern silhouette lends to its sporty personality, which is highlighted by wide shoulders flanking its recessed rear windows to heighten the design. Dynamic side undercuts, a high beltline and 21-inch machined aluminum wheels further enhance the well-proportioned design. The roof over the rear was lowered to give the vehicle a sleeker shape. Highlighted by a panoramic glass surface that lets natural light fill the cabin and integrated roof racks, the floating rear spoiler houses the center high-mounted stop light and hides the antenna. The Lincoln MKX Concept offers a new interpretation of Lincoln's signature full-width taillamps. "Concept vehicles are defined by every design detail," said David Woodhouse, Lincoln design director, "and this MKX Concept shows how Lincoln's thoughtful design philosophy continues to evolve. The Lincoln brand was built on vehicles with stunning design, and the MKX Concept is the latest example." Lincoln's aggressive signature split-wing grille accentuates the front end. The artistic interpretation of the grille features horizontal lines that continue as strips of LED accent lights below each headlamp. These strips of light glow sequentially as part of Lincoln's updated approach detection feature - one element of the Lincoln Experiences package. Lincoln Experiences, a technology-driven suite of features introduced on the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKX small utility vehicle, is designed to create a warmer, more personal luxury car-owning experience. Anticipating and responding to a driver's needs and preferences, Lincoln Experiences offers a warm embrace that begins as a driver approaches the vehicle and continues upon entry and vehicle start-up. ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: http://www.youtube.com/user/urcars *** Check also 2015 Lincoln MKX Concept First Look http://youtu.be/xx6Pmo6x9qo 2015 Lincoln MKC Overview http://youtu.be/9rScyWxTsdg 2015 Lincoln MKC Review http://youtu.be/cTV_K80VN3E 2015 Nissan GT-R First Look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXGN-AuFbqU 2015 Peugeot Exalt First Look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jn_D5oGeW40 2014 Chrysler 300c Base Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v96D8N3dcW8 2014 Chrysler 200 Touring Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGQg0oAvjXI 2014 Chrysler 200 Limited Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYLjJ4K13TY 2014 Dodge Challenger SXT Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2HhFGgPdDo 2014 Dodge Ram Tradesman 2500 Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JF1Wmv-PzkQ 2014 Fiat 500 Pop Review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaAaMq-hsTg 2014 Fiat 500L Lounge Overview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ygj850X3Im8 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan First Look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUrvlAVcbSQ
