Power liftgate module may fail on Chrysler Town & Country

If power mode closes the lift gate—but does not open it—the power lift gate (PLG) module might need a software update.

rear hatch will go up, when actuated from any of the three switches( key fob,,overhead switch, rear switch) , once it approaches full up it jerks and heads back down. So far I found the control module, reseated the connections, its still the same problem. any ideas?

The power liftgate opens but when fully open drops the liftgate in such a way that anyone under it will be hit hard.

power doors and lift gate will not open automatically but will close
When I push the open lift gate buttons the motor actuates but doesn't open or close Lift Gate. The only way it opens is with the key and manual open and close
For the 3rd time the rear liftgate on the van will not open. The motor has been replaced twice by the dealership within the last 2 years, now it has happened again. Could it be the warped bumper which sometimes catches the door as it opens and stops it before returning to the closed position. Could that be burning out the motor? This is so frustrating not have access with the rear door, plus it takes 3 weeks to get into the dealer. What needs to be done to fix this issue permanently?
