Question about 2004 GMC Envoy

Envoy Hello, I was just wondering if you ever figured anything out with your problem with the tailgate, roof, window combo. We are having the same issue. We've had it in the dealership 7 times now within a 2 month period.

Reset the computer, remove the positive battery cabel for 10 mins and replace, they should now work.

Alot of times the computer gets a default setting and causes this.

How to fix my rear tailgate window

check the fuse/relay. if it is neither of these check the switch with a multimeter. If you can hear the motor trying to move the glass when you try the switch it may be the regulator needs attention. It may be the motor needs to be replaced.

check fuse and relay along with the switch first then the regulator and motor afterwards. Replacing the small electronics is obviously easier than having to open up the tailgate to check the mechanics of the winedow.

I have an 04 GMC Envoy XUV. I went to lock my vehicle and accidently pushed the window button on the remote. The rear window went down and I tried to put it back up with the key but it would not go up. ...

The most common issue with strange acting or random function of a remote, IS THE BATTERY. Replace the battery in the remote before forcing anything or taking things apart. Good Luck!
