Power Tail Gate

==Power Tail Gate:==
===Failure:===The dash mounted rocker switch can stick in the activated position and cause the motor to burn out even though the motor has a thermal overload relay built into it.
===Switches:===The switches used are centre off with spring activation. I chose to use a springloaded, 3 position, centre off toggle switch from Jaycar to avoid the motor burn out problem. The switch returns to the centre off position convincingly.
===Relay Circuit:===The Dash Switch only works when the Key is in the Ignition and the Key is in the ON or ACCESSORIES position. The Tailgate Keyswitch can raise or lower the Window Glass any time the Tailgate Key is installed.
====Beware:==== There is a real danger of children playing with the Power Tailgate and personal injury resulting from the Window closing when any part of the body is within the travel area of the glass. The unit must only be operated by a responsible adult who is in charge of the vehicle.
