|B153A code description

The unlatch, ratchet, pawl, and sector switches are part of the liftgate latch assembly and are used by the liftgate control module to determine the state of the latch during the process of cinching or unlatching. The ratchet and pawl switches will be inactive when the primary and secondary latches are latched, and the sector switch will be active during the power cinch function. Each of the latch switch signal circuits are supplied signal through a resistor and monitored within the liftgate control module. The latch switches share a common low reference circuit from the liftgate control module and when the switch contacts close the signal circuit goes low and the liftgate control module determines the switch to be active.
