SOURCE: 2000 GMC Sierra left rear door

Hello,

You may have 2 issues going on at the same time.
1. The child lock safety latch is up, preventing you from opening the door from the inside.
2. The inside clip to the rod that opens the door from the out side could of come off from closing the door to hard. Or the lock itself is getting stuck.

Options:
Roll the window all the way down, and look through the window crack with a flash light and see if any of the rods are just hanging and not connected.
If there are you can try using a slim jim with the cut out part facing up and try to catch the latch and pull up this could open the door.

Or you can try to take off the door panel from the inside, however this is very difficult and should be done by a professional becuse you don't want to break any thing or cause more dammage.

Once the door panel is off you can then pull the inside door release rod and open the door.

One more thing you can try: Pull the inside handle and the out side handle at the same time while having some on pull or push on the door, it just might be stuck and need a little force to open!

SOURCE: 2005 gmc yukon back passenger doors will not

My wife's 2003 Yukon wouldn't lock the rear doors or hatch, but it would unlock. My problem was the lock relay was bad. There are two relays, one for lock and one for unlock. They are located in the fuse panel on the left side of the console. Open the drivers door and you will see a cover that pops off. Behind this are several fuses and relays. Consult your manual to see which is the lock and unlock relays. They are side by side on a 2003. They pull straight out. I replaced both and they were around $10 apiece at any auto store.

SOURCE: 2000 GMC safari Power locks will not work + cant unlock back door

This could be a problem with your primary switch in the driver's door. Everything passes through that switch. Verify voltage continuity to the switch (Haynes or Chilton will give you a conclusive wiring schematic), and you must also verify that the switch itself is not faulty. Using a DMM (digital multi meter), measure the resistance (ohms) between 2 contact points, then hit the switch and verify that this number increases.

SOURCE: how do you remove the rear side door panel to

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls

{: ) Check the ECC fuse10amps at the IP fuseblock. If okay, it's most likely that you will need to replace your liftgate latch. The latch is inside the rear door trim, but since the rear door is stuck closed, it must be opened manually. I suggest you leave that part to the door masters, they know exactly the right technique. If you do it yourself, theres a chance you can break something.

2006 GMC Yukon Denali XL Rear Hatch & Glass locks not working


Could be the latch mechanism for the door is sticking. You could try using some white grease on the latch and the contact where the latch hooks to. You can purchase the grease from most auto parts stores. You will not need to use alot. Just apply a small amount to the mechanisim and then work it in using the manual handle. Then open and close the door several times to feel the "action". Then apply a little more and repeat. This should loosen the latch and get it working again. Also make sure that none of the tension springs have come loose on the latch. And check the seal around the door and make sure it is not pinched and has a proper fit.

REar door wasn't closed hard enough and so latch didn't catch properly and now the rear door won't open with the remote, can I open it somehow from the inside manually?, can't find a latch or anything. 95...


you would have to pull out the interior pannel and and unlock it with a screw driver the latch has a small hole that you could fit the screw driver in and it will release the door latch I have open various doors with a broken handle and it seems that you could do the same good luck.
