2014 Nissan Pathfinder - Tailgate opens on its own

My tailgate goes up and down on its own making putting anything in the rear area a real adventure. My dealer said the cost to check the problem is $150 plus the cost of repairing the problem. Any ideas???

Yes, Pay the diagnostic fee of $150 so that it get fixed correctly. You don’t want them “guessing” at what might be the problem, spending your money and then not getting the car fixed.

You wouldn’t refuse to pay your doctor to diagnose a problem would you? Why is a mechanic different?

Sometimes they drop the diagnostic fee if they do the repairs.
