Question about 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche
2006 chevy avalanche--I sprayed latches and removed handle cover on tail gate and sprayed them also with wd40.still no luck.
I had this problem with my 2004 for the past year. Then this past week end it stopped latching all together. I found on mine the handle mechinism froze up. All the wd40 I tried did not help. I had to replace the handle. one thing I saw that could be a problem if it has happened since owning is if the connecting rods that go from the handle to the side latches are not adjusted right. they clip into the handle mechanism and if they were cannected with latch down they may not move enough to allow latch to lock completely.

I have a 2004 GMC SERIA. The tailgate was hard to close and would fall open at times. i too did what everyone else was doing and lubricating, the assy, and the 2 end latches. After failing and removing everything 2 and 3 times, it looked like the assy arms would not allow the latches to roll over and catch the strickers. So i removed the handle(be careful w/bezel, tindences to break the stubs). i put the assy in my vice w/arms facing away from me; i then took a punch and ball peen hammer and struck the rivette head where arms pivot. this freed up the binding on the arms release mechanism. Tailgate wrks beautiful.
