I will try to help. the bottom of panel should just pry apart with flathead. there are screws in the door "puller". remove small panel at door mirror, one screw there. the power window switch will clip in on one end. pry up carefully on one end and look underneath it to see connection. slides in on one end and clips in on other. one screw under there. the plastic cover behind inside handle release should be pryed carefully to expose. trick is to be careful and take your time. hope this helps.

    Chevy colandro 2005, driver window doesn't go down and the lock doesn't lock.


    If it is just on that side in a relatively new car with no damage check the following:
    Fuses/Relays Motor Inside Door for Window/Door Lock
    It could be a coincidence that both failed at once, they could be linked, or they could be jammed together. Remove the door panel and check for any damage, failures, etc. Actuate the locks and windows with the panel off to see if anything moves/fails to move as planned.

    07 Chevy Tahoe passenger rear door handle broke


    a broken rear door handle takes only a few minutes to replace, whether it's the inside or the outside door handle. However i woudn't suggest you do it yourself if you are not really familiar in the trim panel removal, for you may damage some locking tabs or the finish. we don't need additional costs, right?

    1999 chevy tahoe when it gets wet doors lock.


    they're shorting from the water running down the inside of your door...pull the door panel and install a sheet of plastic over the window controls with duct tape at the top, sortof like a "flap" over the top of the window switches...make it 5-6 wider than the switch area.
    Your window "sweep" (at the top of the door) is most likely shot.
    Good Luck

    2006 Tahoe Z71 Lift Gate Will Not Unlock With Remote


    Take the liftgate inside panel off an check the wiring , connections etc....
    rear door hatch lock repair GMC Chevrolet
    chevy tahoe lift gate not opening
    The liftgate will lock any time the vehicle is shifted out of park on vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and at vehicle speeds exceeding 5 kph with manual transmission. This happens in conjunction with auto door locks if enabled or independently of auto door locks if the feature is disabled. This ensures that the liftgate is locked anytime the vehicle is shifted out of park or when the vehicle is in motion.
    The liftgate lock relay supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit and the ECC fuse. The normally closed contact is connected to ground and the control side is connected to the body control module (BCM). A lock function will occur when a door lock switch activation, keyless entry lock transmission, auto door lock function or a liftgate lock function has been received by the BCM. The BCM will then ground the control side of the liftgate lock relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to the liftgate lock actuator lock control circuit. Since the other side of the liftgate lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the door unlock relay to ground, the liftgate will lock. When an unlock function occurs the BCM will ground the control side of the unlock relay and the rear doors and liftgate will unlock.
    The BCM also runs diagnostics on the liftgate lock relay control circuit and will set DTC B3825 as current and also send a Class 2 message to the DIC. The DIC will display REPLACE LIFTGATE FUSE to inform the driver that a fault has been detected in the liftgate lock circuit and that the liftgate is not locked. Faults that will set the DTC and cause the DIC to display the message could be any of the following

    No power on front passenger door


    Check the connections between the door and the body, not the panel on the door. If a wire was pinched between the door and body that could be the problem. There should be a boot between door and body, peal that back and look for damaged or grounded wires. Repair as necessary.
