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: 97 gmc sierra won't go into 4x4. Electronic

Take the front axle actuator out of the axle. Plug it back in and have some one push the 4x4 button. The actuator should move, it's a liniar motor. If it doesn't then the actuator is bad or there is a wiring problem. If it does there is a problem in your front diff or some where else in the system.
I'd take a guess and say it's the front actuator.

SOURCE: I need help in changing headlight bulb on 2008 gmc

You have to remove the air intake filter and then kind of reach around up in there to change it. It can be done, but is a lot of work. On the duramax, it is even harder to do the driver side because of the dual batteries. You have to remove the battery, then the battery seat plate, and undo the winshield washer fluid tank and lean it forward. Then you can just sort of reach in and change both headlights. A very big pain to change a couple of headlights, but if you want HID's.... for the average person, changing a headlight now means a trip to that garage.

How do I replace the headlight bulbs on a 97 gmc sierra


They twist out of their socket and unplug. If they cannot be accessed when on the vehicle it will be a paint. Either remove things you can in the engine bay or you will have to remove the grill. there will be four 7mm bolts on top one above the GMC emblem the rest is clipped to the vehicle as well as the trim just below the grille carefull not to break tabs on that trim piece. Once the grill is off its simple unbolt headlight and change away. Steve

Headlights go off and on while engine is on or off


I would start by checking/cleaning the connections in the headlight circuit. Poor connections will create resistance in the circuit, causing heat which can melt wiring and connectors. Hope this helps!

How can I replace or clean my headlight globe of a 1998 Galant


Headlight globe, meaning the inside of the headlight? If thats what you mean, only way to do it, is to take the lens off, and in order to do that, you need to take out the headlight, take off the rubber backings and take out the light bulbs. Then preheat your oven to 210 degrees, stick your light in there for 10 minutes, and pry apart the lens, since the glue will melt. Dont forget to undo the clips that also hold the lens to the housing. After you pry off the lens, clean or whatever you need to do. Then reseat the lens and hook the clips, then back in the oven it goes for 10 mins. Then hold pressure on the lens untill glue hardens.

Hope that helps.

They will not have or sell replacement globes, it will come with the whole headlight.
