i tried tripping every wire on that actuator to ground, then i found something unusual, i have a spare battery which i was using to jumper the switch with power and ground and made the switch work, i took the dummy light tester put one end on positive side of the battery the other on the large group of ground wires on the hatch and a single ground on the other and it would not ground the circuit, the light tester would not show power when touched to the grounds on the rear hatch.
the micro switch is on the rear hatch handle, small blue eliptical button without it pressed the rear hatch wont activate, once i jumper it it will activate with external power only. so its leading me back to the front of the car as i am not getting a signal. where does all this stuff ground through? it is supposed to get signal from the BCU to operate the actuator on the rear hatch, if so do those wires run through the passenger door switch for ground? or both doors for ground? i find it unusual neither ground on the hatch lid will act as a ground
this cant be that difficult lmao, i been through so much worse with this car, this is nuts
Is there a power source i can jump off of and just ground and power the rear actuator? i know the hatch wont lock anymore but im dreading digging back into this cares wiring harness, this problem was there prior to us getting this car fixed
