Default Lift gate issues

2016 Tahoe with power lift gate. It will open via the rear handle, remote, foot under the bumper, and overhead console button. However, it will not close when I hit the rear button, remote or overhead console button. I've noticed that when I hit the button on the lift gate itself the rear taillights flash and it does nothing. If I try to close it myself it starts clicking and won't latch when it down. If I hold it down for a couple seconds the clicking stops and it will latch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's out of warrant mileage by about 400 miles of course.

And there is nothing blocking or obstructing the lift gate. The other day I tapped around the edge of the lift gate when it wouldn't close and then it worked. Today I opened it to wipe it all down, while cleaning the truck, and it's back to not working again.

You need to contact GM/Chevrolet support asap. They will work with you and the 400 miles over issue.

You may need to check with the dealer because I had a similar issue in the past and they had to replace one of the hydraulic piece in the back. But this was while it was in warranty... hope all goes well for you
