SOURCE: the tailgate latch on our 2006 Chevy truck is in the open positio

there are little metal rods that connect to the handle of the tailgate, just like the rods that connect your door handles to the door hinges and lock mechanism. just pop off the plastic cover over the tailgate handle and check and see if the rods are still connected to the handle.

SOURCE: 2004 Envoy Xuv tailgate does not open.

pull the plastic off of the tailgate and make sure the small wire looking controls are still hooked up. sometimes they will pop out after alot of use. other thing is make sure the rear actuator is actually working (it could be bad)

I have a 20013 odyssey touring While the car was locked the tailgate opened with no action. The key fob did not open it after I shut it and was locked Why?


maybe a freak occurence, a one off. Possibly the tailgate was not shut properly and just released. I WOULD ENSURE THAT, ON THIS OCCASSION, I keep in mind that it must always be shut firmly and should it happen again, then I WOULD START WORRYING.
There are some mischievous individuals who can , as you press the lock/unlock button of your remote keyfob, intercept and store the code it is transmitting.

Problem with boot lock on Astra 5 door estate 2006


If there isn't an emergency "lock knackered" panel in the tailgate trim, you will probably have to force the trim panel off. These are usually only fastened by plastic pop studs, so you should be able to do it without damaging the panel, although you may need to get replacement studs.

When the tailgate is fully closed, is it actually properly latched down? Try pushing down firmly on the tailgate when it's closed just to be certain as it's possible that the latch is sitting half open at the moment.

The A/C in my 2006 VW Passat does not work consistently. It works at times before the engine gets to operating temperature, but quits upon reaching normal operating temp. Any ideas?


you should check the antifreeze I have been told that if your antifreeze is low the computer will shut off systems to keep the engine temp down. if that is not the probable check your freon level if it is to full or not full enough the compressor won't work properly.

2006 1.9 passat tdi estate drivers side door handle fault


Under waranty? Back to the dealer. Out of waranty? Either a dealer, or a private shop that has a good reputiation. Ask your friends amd co-workers and family.

Child locks only disable the INSIDE handle leaving the OUTSIDE handle operating. Sounds like the linkage for the outer handle has come apart.

I coincidentally charged the battery and it now works. This may be nothing to do with it but the MB service dept did msay that some functions fail before others if the battery is flat.

Motor car electrical fault


ok....the problem is the rear washer pipe has blown of in the tailgate where it connects to the motor,it happens when you operate the rear washer when it is frozen.the connection is fairly weak and cant cope with pressure build up.in both cases you need to remove the tailgate trim,reconect the pipe and dry out the catch as that has a micro switch in it that operates the warning light for tailgate open and the alarm.it is shorted out with water hence the false alarming and warning light on........if you pop the bonnet but dont open it that will stop alarm from arming as temp fix,but dont forget to shut it before you drive off .hope this helps,please rate this ,thx
