We have been having this error intermittently over the last few months. Now the error has stayed for about a week. Power has been disabled on the liftgate and we can only open/close the liftgate manually. An estimate from the Honda dealership is about $1200, as they say they need to replace the switch assembly, which includes the camera. This seems really extreme, especially since the camera is fully functional!

Has anyone has this problem and how was it resolved? We are hesitant to have it serviced not only because of the cost, but we also got the line "we recommend starting with"....really saying they are not even sure this will result in a fix. :/

Can you describe the problem?

Without warning the tailgate will lose power - the switches will not respond anymore (not on the tailgate, the driver door button, nor the key fob) and the error Power Tailgate Problem is displayed. The tailgate only works in manual mode. We do not experience any shuttering or mis-steps as I read others have experienced, it just stops responding.

If the problem is the switch, $1200 to replace just the switch seems very extreme indeed, especially since it shouldn't take more than half an hour to replace it. If this is the correct part you can get it for 20% of that price here:
