Rear latch sticks open. If not noticed and left, it drains batteries. Batteries now require replacing.

Regularly lubricate to free up but it continues to occur.
I reported tailgate problem when I took it in for dead battery. They reported that dead battery and that fixed the tailgate. The tailgate is worse now.
