Please note:

When closing the tailgate using your remote or inside buttons there is a three seconds delay before the module closes the tailgate.

The three seconds delay is needed in order to properly close the tailgate when in an instance the tailgate was fully open. So the tailgate first opens completely and then closes.

You need to remember this when you have low clearance above the tailgate(example low ceiling in garage) and you had to stop the tailgate in not fully open position.

Assemble everything back in reverse order.
