Question about 2004 GMC Envoy
I also have a 2004 GMC XUV. My gate would go down but not swing open. In trying to fix it, the gate then refused to go to the flat position.I have removed the cover plate on the gate and found the one of the solenoids loose from its mounting. Resetting the computer by disconnecting both battery leads and holding them together for ten seconds worked to restore function to the gate going flat, but the swing still does not work. I believe it is a bad solenoid or motor for the bottem left latch pin.

I also have a latching problem with my 04 Envoy XUV and have replaced the left two latches several times. (The right one has never failed). The tailgate won't either latch closed or won't open one way or the other or both. I determine which latch is not catching and replace that one. Each time it fixes all latching problems for a few months but one or the other always fail again. I have been told GMC's latches are defectine and nothing can be done about it. So I just keep replacing latches. Just take off the plastic tailgate interior panel and unbolt the three bolts holding the latch. Unplug the electrical connection and replace the latch with the new one. Unfortunately, I'm getting real fast at doing it.

I do not have the XUV model but I know that my Envoy has an electronic sounding latch lock when I close my tailgate. I would check the fuses and electrical connections. I hope that this helps.
