Power Lift Gate May Lose its Power Operation on Volvo XC60

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The power lift gate may lose its power operation if the vehicle is moved with the lift gate open. This is an "untended result" of the safety logic in the lift gate control module. Volvo is currently considering a software upgrade for the control module to address this concern. Our technicians tell us, if this issue occurs the lift gate may be closed manually, or reset by removing the key, leaving the vehicle sit for 5 minutes, and restarting the engine.
