  1. It very well could be your latch assembly. That said, mine is an SEL and yours is a Titanium so there may be some differences between the two. Good luck!
  2. So after trying a handful of the suggested solutions above, I finally just replaced the complete latch assembly which fixed the problem. Below are links to a video I found on the replacement procedure as well as a link to where I purchased the latch. Tailgate Latch Assembly Tailgate Latch Assembly Video
  3. It started 6 months or so ago. Good thought on the battery as it is the original. Same on the reset. I'll give that a try tonight.
  4. That's a good thought. I can't remember trying to open it with the key fob in my pocket and the vehicle lock. Will try today to rule that out. My issue happens always when the car is unlocked. Sometimes I can't get it to release when it is unlocked, but walking over and hitting the unlock button on the drivers door will allow my 'press the button - wait 10 seconds - hit it again and it works' solution to work.
  5. Thanks for the response, but I believe this level of troubleshooting is beyond my skill set. That said, I'm going to try and figure it out anyways!
  6. Actually, I didn't think about it when I asked the question, but the family and I went on vacation the day after I posted. I guess no more vacations 😅
  7. 2016 SEL trunk/gate (not a power lift) is not opening properly. Basically the only way we can get it open is to press the button inside the handle, wait 5 to 10 seconds, then press it again and most of the time it will release and let us lift it open. Sometimes it takes a couple tries. Everything I've found here revolves around the power lift gate but nothing for the standard trunk. Any thoughts or maybe a link to a thread that I missed?
