Cargo door Power Door Lock Actuator Repair

Unable to unlock the rear cargo door. Unable to remove the actuator. Is there a release lever or anything to manually open the rear cargo door in order to be able to remove the actuator ? I have the interior panel removed and able to get to the actuator but can't see how to remove it. I was told that there should be a release lever or something to be able to override the lock and open the cargo door.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Sequoia - Rear hatch door lock is

Welcome to Fixya

Remove the vinyl pull-strap that is located on the rear panel, use a #2 philips to do this. Now start to remove the large inside door panel. This panel has the rear glass inside rubber anti-rattle blade attached to the top of it. (If you were able to open the hatch door from the outside you can remove the inside panel by starting at the bottom of the panel and using a thin blade to lift the panel away from the door and then pop the plastic barbs loose, then lift it up and off of the door sheet-metal.) Starting at one corner, bend out and pull up on the panel where it is hooked over the top of the window opening sheet-metal. It takes a little force to get it started but be persistent, once it is started work towards the other end. Once it's loose at the top you can reach inside and pop loose the plastic barbs that retain the panel and remove it completely.
Thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: power door locks will not lock except manually

First of all, check ACC fuse in the driver side junction box. The central controller for power door locks is the body ECU. From your description it may be working only partially. Can the doors be locked using a key? If so, this would indicate the actual locking mechanism is OK. Do the front door lock control switches lock the doors?

Fuel door won't open on a 2008 g8 pontiac


Fuel Fill Door Description and Operation
The fuel door latch actuator shares the circuit with the driver door latch assembly. The body control module (BCM), upon receipt of a lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate door lock actuator, as well as a fuel filler door release actuator control circuits to battery positive voltage. The opposing side of the door lock and fuel filler door release actuators is connected to ground by the I/P fuse block through the other door lock actuator control circuit and the doors, along with the fuel filler door release, will lock or unlock as commanded.
Circuit/System Testing
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the fuel door release actuator.
  2. Test for less than 1 ohm between the control circuit terminal 1 and ground.
  3. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance.

  4. Test for less than 1 ohm between the control circuit terminal 2 and ground.
  5. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance.

  6. Connect a test lamp between the control circuit terminal 1 and control circuit terminal 2.
  7. Ignition ON, command the doors to LOCK and UNLOCK by using the door lock switch. The test lamp should illuminate while commanding the LOCK and UNLOCK states.
  8. ?‡'
    If the test lamp remains OFF during either command, test either control circuit for a short to ground.

  9. If all circuits test normal, test or replace the fuel door release actuator.
Component Testing
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the fuel door release actuator
  2. Install a 15A fused jumper wire between the control terminal 1 and 12V. Momentarily install a jumper wire between the control terminal 2 and ground. The fuel door release actuator should perform the LOCK/UNLOCK function.
  3. ?‡'
    If the function does not perform as specified, replace the fuel door release actuator.

  4. Reverse the jumper wires. The fuel door release actuator should perform the UNLOCK/LOCK function.
?‡'
If the function does not perform as specified, replace the fuel door release actuator.

The rear hatch on my 2006 Saturn vue will not unlock with the other doors! So I can't get the hatch open!


The most common issue for this concern is the rear lock assembly. The lock has a electrical actuator that locks and unlocks the lock assembly. WHen the actuator goes bad, it no longer can unlock the hatch. You will have to replace the lock assembly to fix this issue. The hard part is that you have to open the hatch to do this. Most of these cars have a manual unlock but you have to find it. Look at the bottom of the interior panel on the hatch, some come with a small cover plate that can come off, inside is a lever that can unlock the hatch. Its best to have the new part from the dealership so you can see what the lever looks like. If you do not have a cover plate, then you have to try and get the trim panel off so you can reach the release lever.

X-Type Jag 2002 off side rear passenger door will not unlock. Cant open from inside or out.


Your rear door lock lever rod seems to have come off and is therefore not releasing the lock. You will have to open the inner door opener lever and try to somehow reach the place from where our lever rod has come off, manually release it, open the door, its inner door panel and put the rod back in its proper place.

My rear hatch will not open on my 2005 saturn vue. There is no key lock on the outside in my model. Any idea how to fix it?


Sorry, I don't have the data now..... but.Some hatches have a manual release on the inside. There might be a small plate near the door center that you can remove and open the hatch with a screwdriver.

but...I'm not sure tho about your car.

My 2006 dodge durango rear hatch door will not open, I am looking for a manual way to open the rear hatch? and a solution to this problem. also looking for a detailed manual for the fuse box.as I am...


I own a 04 durango and the door lock actuator froze up internally and I could not open the rear hatch. After hours of research on my computer nothing seemed to fix the problem. I eventually figured it out myself. You must pull the screws out of the molding on the inside of the rear door. You can now pull the molding toward you and look down at the actuator and latch. You can pull on the molding quite a bit if necessary. I never broke mine and I was pretty agressive with it. Now, on top of the whole mechanism is the lock actuator. There should be a white plastic lever sticking out towards the driver side. If you can slide it from back to forward "forward is front of vehicle", the lock should be working. If not your door is not unlocking. My durango had 3 Torx screws on top of the actuator. Remove them. This will take the actuator off of the latch. Now that the actuator is not binding or holding the lock from moving, again try to move the white plastic lever towards front of vehicle. It should click and you should be able to open the door.
