Question about 2009 Chevrolet Traverse
The strut was creaking so some wd40 penetrating fluid was used. Since then this problem has started
It's now a recall item. See below.
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 15V415000
Manufacturer: General Motors LLC
Potential Number of Units Affected: 686287
Recall Date: 2015-06-30
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 Buick Enclave vehicles manufactured January 3, 2007, to February 29, 2012, 2009-2012 Chevrolet Traverse vehicles manufactured July 6, 2008, to February 29, 2012, 2007-2012 GMC Acadia vehicles manufactured September 15, 2006, to February 29, 2012, and 2007-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles manufactured August 17, 2006, to March 18, 2010. The affected vehicles, equipped with the power liftgate option, have gas struts that hold the power liftgate up when open. These struts may prematurely wear and the open liftgate may suddenly fall.
If the open liftgate unexpectedly falls, it may strike a person, increasing their risk of injury.
GM will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the power liftgate actuator motor control unit so that the motor will prevent the rapid closing of the lift gate, free of charge. Owners were mailed interim notices on August 3, 2015. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782, and Saturn customer service at 1-800-553-6000. GM's number for this recall is 15240.

I am not sure how to manually release the latch....
if it is electronic, i would check the fuse for it.....normally though on the inside there is a little access to things like that, so you can manually open it...would be like a small lever.
