I know the earlier tahoe's have two heater lines running from the engine compartment to the rear under the vechile. Those lines could be clogged or pinched shut. What you do is get two hose locking pliers. Go under your truck, they are two metal lines that turn into rubber and back into metal again farther down the line. First, checked for pinched lines. If none, find where the rubber hoses are, clamp them off, remove from metal lines and drain. Use garden hose to flush fresh water through. When water comes through at high pressure and pretty clear, it should be done. Reconnect hoses, top off radiator fluid and it should be fine.

SOURCE: Latch for hatch of my '07 Subaru is closed with gate open

Unfortunately, you will have to remove the panel of the door, Use flathead screwdriver to pry open. It is very likely the spring fell off.

SOURCE: Subaru liftgate lock stuck, liftgate won't close

You should open the tailgate and pull the handle and at the same time push the hook back so that it is not in the way of the lock bar when go to close it. Sounds like it just got jammed and should be able to be fixed with out having to replace. Assuming that it is not rusted and seized.

Battery keeps draining


One of the most common things is that your interior lights are staying on, check and clean the door switches and make sure they are springing back into position easily with your finger. Also check your rear door latch for the same. Another thing is, if you have lighted vanity mirrors in your visors, those switches can become gummed up as well. One last thing to check is your interior light switches, ie. dome lights, overhead lights etc.

04 tahoe liftgate will not lock


Make sure key is in the center locking position when removed. May have bad lock mechanism or lock mechanism was jammed shutt befor closing. You can take a screwdriver and pry out the lock latch while turning mechanism with key. Mechanism should pop open and lock should work. Do you have power locks? have someone work the switch as you attempt to free up mechanism with screwdriver.

1996 tahoe - while cleaning the door I latched the front door latch and now I can't get it un latched so I can close the door


Get a screwdriver, making sure the door lock is in the unlocked position, lift the outside handle as if opening the door, and move the latch with the screwdriver. It may take a little effort as these are often spring loaded.

Driver side rear door wont shut cannot get metal piece to move.


If you are referring to the door latch being in the closed position, make sure the child safety switch is in the off position and use a flat blade screwdriver to open the latch. You may need to spray some penetrating oil on the latch.

My back door won't open on my 2000 tahoe


you latch mechanism could be broken or came apart, common to any vehicle.. open the cover to the back and you will see the locking mechanism, once the rear cover open you can find the latch and open it form the inside. once you get the door open you can play with the door handle by pulling on it like you opening the door and you can observed what actually connect to what to operate the latch. if small rod attached from the door handle to the lock could pop off or broken. may have to replace the handle, depend if its broken or came apart. should be 30 buck for the new handle if needed..hope that help some..good luck

Rear access open on 2005 Chevy Tahoe


I don't know if this will work, but at least it is worth a try. Spray some WD40 liberally over and into both tailgate latches. Try to get up inside using the straw extension. Open and close multiple times to work it in. I suspect there is an internal latch switch, which controls the display, that might be dirty, corroded, or just not working. Of course other causes are possible. I hope it works.
