Question about 1999 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

Left side rear door will not unlatch.

The left side rear door stopped working the other day. Loaded some stuff in the back, when I closed the left side I heard a small metallic " tink ". When I got home the left side door would not unlatch to open. Can anyone give me an idea of how to fix it? Cannot unlatch the door to open it to get access to the inner door panel.

Stupid question but did you try inside latch?If so you should be able to remove seat from other side and remove door panel and replace parts (probley clip) as needed or at least open door if latch is defective

2010 dodge grand caravan passenger sliding door unlatches but will not open automatically.closes fine. Checked wiring for breaks found none any suggestions


Maybe its connected to a control panel (left side driver door) that needs to be activated. Some door switches have a safety feature that won't allow opening automatically. Check that feature.

Hiya I have a 2002 Renault Megane, on one side I had child lock on and my partner knocked it off but somehow it has jammed and the car door won't shut now... any ideas what I can do? Can it be sorted...


When the child lock got knocked off, it left the handle in the door unlatched position. Just knock it back the other way and the door will latch when closed.

How does the 1999 Tahoe tailgate open?


The right side can be unlocked with the key, once opened, the left side can be opened. Mine, the left side requires me to push in slightly while ensuring the release handle is pulled to it's furthest point before it will unlatch. If the electrical contacts at the door frame are dirty, the door may not unlock when pushing the button up front thus requiring the key to be used in the rear door. If this is not the solution, the latch rods inside the door need adjusted which requires some mechanical expertise.

It sounds like there are 2 motors involved, one that latches and unlatches the door, and a second that moves it out of the way or brings it back.

The one is working, the other is not.

First, look for a blown fuse.

Disconnect that 2nd motor (if you can find the connector), and use a volt meter to see if power is getting to the motor and the motor does not work, or the power is not getting there.

From rear-left side latches engaged-can't fasten


it will be a little difficult now, but you need to take a screw driver or something to pry on the left to unlatch and start over and do it the right way :)

Drivers window will go down but not up


It may be that it is not on the track properly or your power window motor is old and tierd and can take the window down but it doesn't have the juice in it any more to bring it back up. replace the motor and it will work. This problem happened to me in my '76 ford ltd and a new motor fixed it.

2003 toyota sequoia rear door latch broken


First, take off the license plate2_bing.gif.
Since the hatch wouldn't open, I started from the inside and took down the top trim piece. After that the two side pieces come down, then the main trim piece which covers the bulk of the door comes out. These are all popped in with the white tabs.
There are 3 access hole covers to pop out (don't forget to install them back in when done) and through the left hole you can see the mechanism to unlatch, press it down with a screwdriver and open the door. If anytime you close the door you will have to do this to unlatch, up until you disconnect the cable and pull out the handle, then you have to locate the cable and pull that directly.
Behind the large trim piece you will find a metal access cover, remove the 7 or 8 10mm bolts holding that on and pop the 3 white tabs and let it hang off to the side. Disconnect the cable from the handle assembly by reaching in from the right hand side and popping of the cable from the handle assembly.
From the left and right access holes, locate the two 10mm nuts which hold the license plate assembly to the door and remove them. Then there are 4 plastic tabs that come in from the outside that hold the license plate assembly on in each corner, try and locate those and using some pliers squeeze them together and push it through. Next locate the license plate lamps wire connector and release that from the left side, it’s the simple push in and pull out square white connector.
After these are out, put back in 1 or 2 bolts into the large metal access cover so the hatch can be lowered (don’t close it).
Here is where I had fun, begin to pop out the assembly that it was bolted to. I ended up breaking 3 of the 4 plastic tabs in each corner because I did not use pliers from the other side to pull them out, however it remained somewhat useable (hindsight 20/20).
Now the license plate assembly can be taken to a bench to replace the handle assembly (Toyota doesn't sell just the handle, it is a small assembly). Two screws out and the assembly is replaced.
Before pressing the license plate assembly back onto the truck, make certain all the plastic tabs are in the assembly and not in the truck. Reverse the process to re-install.
