Rear hatch powers open, but not on closing

Hey gang-

Recently the rear hatch on my 2011 FX35 has started acting up. It powers open normally via the keyfob or dashboard switch or door button. But it will not power closed by any means. So I have taken to manually closing the rear hatch. I see numerous threads on rear hatch issues, but not this one. Thanks for any insights!

Hey what’s up. The rear power lift gate has a small rubber trim that runs around the edge of the lift gate itself. This trim is a pressure sensor that if it senses anything it will reverse itself from closing. But if this rubber is torn anywhere along itself the liftgate won’t close electronically only manually. It would open fine. Check all along this rubber and see if there is any damage to it. If not then your gonna need a good scanner to check for codes and data to see what is keeping the liftgate from functioning. Good luck and hope you sort it out.
