SOURCE: Rear liftgate and glass won't

The liftgate actuator(what makes it go up and down) might have failed. Take a test light and make sure it is getting power to it and if it is you will have to replace it.

If you can hear the actuator clicking then the plastic ends that attach the rod lock/latch to it has most likely broke off. It's fairly common on the Tahoe and Blazer for this to happen. You can open the hatch and gate by removing the inside plate from latch handle and prying the latch open manually. I hope this helps.

Where is the manual liftgate sensor located 2009 Equinox


The liftgate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the liftgate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the liftgate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch.
Not sure what your talking about . There is no sensor. there is a relay in the I/P fuse box LIFTGATE PCB relay . an a lift gate actuator motor inside the door . An there is a door ajar switch ,which is part of the latch mechanism. Do you have light lit on the instrument cluster - a picture of a little car with a door open , an maybe a chime sounding ?

Not

Need to fix door on expedition liftgate won't open


In this case it is usually necessary to remove the interior panels of the liftgate to gain access to the linkage inside. The only problem is: removal of those panels is much more difficult with the liftgate closed. Take to a professional, or risk breaking the attachment points of your panels, and associated fasteners. I usually charge around 50 to 100 dollars to get these open, then an additional charge for further work to repair the lock, latch, or linkage.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do This
Don't Do This

Reposition liftgate lock cylinder wave washer and adjust lock rod.
DO NOT replace the liftgate latch or actuator.


Condition
Some customers may comment on one or more of the following conditions:

• The rear liftgate glass may not lock when using the remote keyless entry (RKE), key fob transmitter or door lock switch unless the lock is pressed a second time.

• The rear liftgate or glass locks, but may be unlocked when the rear liftgate lock cylinder button is depressed.

• The rear liftgate locks but the liftgate glass may not lock.

Cause
These conditions may be caused by one or all of the following:

• The rear liftgate cylinder lock rod may be out of adjustment.





• The wave washer on the liftgate lock cylinder may be out of position with the cup side down.

• Excessive movement or slack in the lock rods at the liftgate bell crank assembly.





• The liftgate lock cylinder pawl may contact the rear liftgate glass latch when the lock cylinder button is depressed.

Correction
Important: Do Not remove the rear liftgate lock cylinder from the vehicle to perform this repair.

Reposition the rear liftgate lock cylinder wave washer and adjust the lock rod using the steps below.

Verify the customer's condition.

Open the liftgate.

Remove the upper liftgate garnish molding.

Remove the rear liftgate trim panel.

Remove the cylinder lock rod from the threaded lock rod retaining clip.

Tip
Place the tip of a screwdriver blade into the opening of the C-clip and slowly rotate the screwdriver to pry out the C-clip from the shaft. Then use needle-nose pliers to remove the C-clip.

Remove the C-clip from the rear liftgate lock cylinder push button and remove the wave washer.

Install the wave washer with the cup side up.

Position the wave washer with the curved edges of the wave spring parallel to the tabs on the lock cylinder shaft.

Important: Use needle-nose pliers to slightly squeeze the C-clip back into shape. Make sure the clip seated, you should feel a snap and hear an audible click.

Install the C-clip onto the shaft and in the slot using needle nose pliers. Then rotate the pawl several times to make sure the C-clip does not rotate. If the clip rotates then the clip is not fully seated.

Position the lock cylinder pawl to the full clockwise position.

Pull up on the cylinder lock rod to remove any slack in the bell crank.

Install the cylinder lock rod into the threaded lock rod retaining clip while removing any slack from the lock rod linkage.

Close the lock rod retainer clip.

Close the liftgate assembly.

Open the liftgate glass while keeping the liftgate closed.

Use the key fob to cycle the liftgate to the lock and unlock position while inspecting the rear liftgate pawl. The lock cylinder pawl should have clearance between the latch as shown above. If the pawl is contacting the latch, readjust the cylinder lock rod.

Verify that the customer's condition has been corrected.

Install the rear liftgate trim panel.

Install the upper liftgate garnish molding.

I just bought an equinox 2005 LS and I dont know how to lock the rear door.


To unlock the liftgate, press the unlock button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter twice or use the power door lock switch.
To lock the liftgate, press the lock button on the RKE transmitter or use the power door lock switch. The liftgate does not have a key lock cylinder.
To open the liftgate, pull up on the handle located in the center of the liftgate.
When closing the liftgate, use the molded handles to pull the liftgate down. Push the liftgate closed until it latches.

I HAVE CONDENSATION IN HEADLIGHT ON 2008 CHEV Equinox. How do I fix?


First you need to find out how the water is getting inside. It could be as simple as the bulb socket is not fully tight, or the gasket between the socket and the reflector housing is damaged or missing. Or, the housing could have a crack in it.
