Default Power liftgate issue.

Hello all! I'm new here and trying to figure out what is going on with the liftgate on my 2007 Grand Caravan SXT. This problem has been going on for awhile, but just learned how to live with it. When you open the gate, it opens all the way, but when it reaches the full open position, it reverses and closes. It does not free-fall, the motor simply reverses and closes the gate.
Now...when it starts to close, I can hit the button a second time and it goes back up and stays, however, once fully open again, there is a loud pop noise coming from the motor/gear mechanism and must be manually closed, it will not close with the button even if opened manually.
I have had this van for about 6 years and I seem to remember there used to be a warning beep when the gate was activated, but hasn't made that sound for ages. I honestly don't remember if the beep stopped at the same time this problem started, though I want to say the beep stopped before this happened.
As I said, we just learned to live with it by waiting until it opened and hit the button a second time to get it open, then close it manually.
I've had it apart in the past and couldn't find and obvious problems, ie missing teeth, cracked sector plate, etc... nothing.
It'd be nice to finally fix it.
