SOURCE: engine light came on then security light also

Recommend to have codes pulled via scan tool. Lights can come on for many different things. Possible bad ignition switch assembly can cause both check engine light and security light to come on.

Broken tailgate latch


UHOH, might try a bent butter knife or other bent metal and slip it in the crack between the tailgate and the side panel on the side that the rod from the handle came off on, but if it came off both sides you'll have to work both latch at the same time which will require the help of a buddy unless your pretty acrobatic. You have to push in the catch or catches that are not retracting to unlatch the tailgate. Good luck if all else fails you'll need to take it to a body shop. Some trucks you can get to the rods to the latches trough the hole where the handle mounts with some needle nose and pull the rods if they came loose at the middle.

How to open the tailgate if handle or cable is broken on 2003 sequoia


I had the same problem with my 02 Sequoia. To get the tailgate open and replace the broken handle you will have to remove the tailgate's panel cover.

The panel is affixed to the tailgate with about six to eight plastic stays on the back side of the panel.

You will need a "L"-shaped tool (The tool looks like a screw driver with its tip bent one-to-two inches.) that can be inserted under the panel's edge. Start @ the right, or left bottom corner.

After you pull the panel's second plastic stay away from the tailgate you will be able to use your hand to pull the rest of the stays away from the tailgate then push up on the panel to remove it.

After the panel is removed you will be able to see where the cable feeds into the broken handle. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to pull the cable and open the tailgate. Toyota charges $100.00 for a new handle.

Hope this helps and is not to confusing.

2003 Cadillac Escalade the layches on bothsides of tailgate will not lock to keep the tailgate closed


The latches are adjustable; look them over carefully ( vehicle side) to see if there are marks where they moved. Slightly loosen the latch mechanism and slide toward the back, the tighten. Do one side and test, then the other.

2003 Ford Explorer back door latch will not open


Mine just did the exact same thing. The latch may be moving freely because it is not hooked to the latching mechanism anymore. In my case, the handle had broken where the handle hooks to the rod that operates the mechanism. Go to the Ford dealer and buy a new handle. Here in S.C. it was $24. You can't get this at the parts houses. Start by removing the plastic "Ford" cover that is over the liscense plate lights. You then have to remove the aluminum rivets that hold the handle to the tailgate from the outside and remove the broken latch. Remove the pull handle loop on the interior side of the tailgate (2 screws), unsnap the inside plastic tailgate interior panel, and pull down the black plastic sheeting that is underneath the panel to make access to the mechanism inside of the tailgate. There is also a hard plastic cover that you will see that needs to be pulled loose to open another access hole. Install the new tailgate latch handle by sliding back into the mounting holes and attach with two 10-32 screws and nuts. The new handle will come with a new yellow rod attachment piece on the handle. You will see inside of the tailgate a small rod hanging down, most likeky it will have the same rod attachment piece as the one on the new handle. Note the position of the yellow piece on the rod, as you will connect the new piece in the same place. Once the rod is hooked up, relubricate the metal mechanism with a light machine oil, replace the black plastic cover, replace the black plastic sheeting, (secure with a small amount of duct tape), replace the tailgate interior panel, replace the pull handle loop, shut tailgate, replace "Ford" cover over lights, and you're done!
