Aftermarket power liftgate?

Postby JSmith858 » Thu Jan 01, 2015 6:12 pm

I tried to do a search, but no luck; please steer me in the right direction if this is a dupe :)

Has anyone installed an aftermarket liftgate? I bought a 2015 Rogue yesterday that didn't come w/ it, & am just checking my options for aftermarket things that I could get over time.

Thanks so much :)

not happening, unless you visit a true custom car shop. expect to spend a couple grand, and to void your warranty on many things.

Aftermarket power liftgate - retrofit

Postby paris013 » Thu Jun 14, 2018 12:21 pm

Hi all,

We just bought a 2017 Rogue SV. Unfortunately it did not come with a power liftgate, which was the feature I really wanted. I had done some research etc and purchased the Autoease power liftgate kit. I have managed to install it all except the final powering connections. The manufacturer is telling me I'm supposed to replace one of the fuses with his fuse (?!), but it doesn't fit. I don't really want to tear apart the dash without knowing where the power source I'm supposed to tap into is exactly.
The supplied wire attached to the fuse "holder" has the same u-shaped metal end that also connects to the ground source. I also need to connect an additional wire to the power lock/unlock (which i believe is the green wire)
I was hoping someone here may be able to point me in the direction of resources for diagrams or give me a better idea here than the Chinese manufacturer has?

Thank you

So that was the feature you really wanted, but you didn't check to see if it had it before you bought the car?

I knew it did not have it but it is not my main vehicle, and other factors outweighed that. Additionally, I knew retrofit kits existed. So thank you for your help.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking us. You said the fuse supplied doesn't fit, so I assume you have found the fuse box.
By definition, a fuse panel has to be accessible to service and repair blown fuses, so no dash disassembly should be required.

Are they asking you to power the circuit from an existing circuit serving the lift gate? Do they say which one? (At the lift gate end, did you run a new wire to the fuse panel or reuse a wire that was already in place?) What did it plug in to before? Is this kit a generic, one model for all vehicles or tailored specifically for your year of Rogue?

I actually figured out the power source issue. My issue now is I can't seem to figure out the wiring diagram to determine which wire in pillar b is the unlock signal. I've got 5 striped wires and 1 blue wire but the diagram doesn't seem to say much about striped wires. I guess I was trying to figure out which one it was without a multimeter.

Hey did you ever figured out which wire is the unlock wire? And if so did it work?
