Q: Hydraulic lift gate not working

asked by on February 11, 2016

The heavy-duty hydraulic lift gate is not working.

The lift gate could have many problems that might cause it not to work. I would recommend taking the truck to the lift gate manufacturer or the dealership to have them look over the problem. They will have all the diagrams for the system that aren’t readily available for most to get.
