    Same issue developed today.  No proximate cause, other than normal use of the tailgate.

If it is not ejecting the DVD and it says that it is you might want to take it to a dealership. It is under warranty and they will be able to help you out.

Remove the paneling from inside. Than you can use a flathead screwdriver to pry the latch rod and latch enough to pop open the door.

If the engine is still not warmed up yet and you take off like a bat out of hell, they will misfire occasionally. If it is a frequent problem change the spark plugs.

Jammed door on a 2007 Entourage


The door latch is damaged, you need to remove the inside door panel and replace the latch, it is a dealer only part.

I have a 2008 Hyundai Entourage. The airbag light is on and the power doors/tailgate will not work from the door controls. Power doors will work from the keyless remote and the driver's side overhead...


Read the link below,,, a lady had her airbag light on and found a relatively easy fix. Still required a dealer reset, but you want the airbags to work!!

Often times, certain codes will disable certain features. Some are for safety reasons, others are for a nuisance reason to force you to get the car fixed. Good luck!

2009 Ford F350 tailgate latch stuck in the open position, tailgate won't latch closed.


I am not quite sure, but on the sides of the tailgate, where it locks, can't you push the mechanism back? I think you can. It either turns them from latch to open. You can try this. See if you can push it into lock mode.

Auto tailgate warning light is on dash board but tailgate closed.


I have a similar problem, my tailgate stopped working with the outside handle and the remote but can be opened manually from the inside. I don't have an alarm so there is no problem with that but did you get a solution for the tailgate problem that I could try?

1992 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 tailgate wont latch


latches for this are on the sides. The are connected by the handle in the middle of the gate. Latches are either stuck open (dry or frozen open) or stuck closed and you are banging on them when trying to close and "latch" gate. Get a screwdriver and while pulling up on tailgate handle make sure latches(on gate) are open to engage "striker bolt". If they are spray them liberally with WD40 or silicone SPRAY. latch and open several times to let lubricant attack rusted area on mechanism.

If latches won't open they may be stuck closed and won't open because cable going from middle handle to that side or both sides is disconnected. Does tailgate have star shaped bolts on "inside-bed-when-closed" side? If so you will need to spray these with WD40 and let set then get a star torques bit and remove them to access middle handle actuator.
