Hello all, and thank you for providing this forum.
Purchased 09 LE AWD, 8K miles, deep sapphire and leather with all the tech packages and 20" wheels Saturday. The dealer was having a clearance sale at a local mall, and of course the doors were open and the battery eventually went dead. The sales people closed the power rear lift gate manually, jumped the vehicle and liftgate will not reopen. Owners manual talks about safe mode and that the liftgate will not open and the dealer must repair. Won't open with the inside manual release either.
So they are going to pick it up and fix it Monday, and wondering if this is a simple fix. Saw several links in the service manual sticky for additional dead battery actions, and they all refer back to manual DLK which will not open.
Any info appreciated, and again thanks for letting me join your community. This car is awesome, and is much better appointed for the price than the ML350 we were going to buy.
