    It sounds like the lock actuator has failed or has a poor connection which won't allow the latch to release. What you will need to do is remove the inside rear hatch panel to access the lock actuator. Once you get to the latch use a flat screwdriver to release the latch being careful not to damage the glass.

    SOURCE: My 2005 Honda Odyssey driver's side manual

    More than likely the connecting rod that goes from the door lock actuator to the locking mechanism itself came unattached. These rods are usually held in place by a small piece of plastic that the rods "pop" in and out. The only other thing i can imagine possible is that the door lock itself is actually seized up. In order to attempt to fix this, you would have to remove the door side panel to see the inner workings of the door, and this is quite difficult on most side sliding doors (i have a 2000 pontiac montana w/dual sliding doors). Hope this can help you solve your problem.

    SOURCE: can't find relay for radiator cooling fan on 2005 GMC sierra

    Go to and sign up and register your truck for FREE. Then you can scroll down to the Diagrams section which also has Fusebox and Powerbox layouts.

    The Relays are usually in the Powerboxes under the hood. Sometimes the horn relay is identical to other important relays like your cooling fan relay.

    If the layout shows this is true and the part numbers on the case of the part matches, then you can switch the relays and see if the fan works or the horn works.

    The diagrams are also for the chassis and will help you trace the wires by color and will indicate through the wiring pattern of whether the relay is in the Powerbox or next to the fan.

    I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Z-71 - the interior dome light works with the dash switches, but won't work when the door opens. Why?

    Is there a button by the headlight control switch? I recently found out that the dome light only comes on while the doors are open when this button is engaged

    Sunroof won't open

    is this electric? If so, can you hear the motors try to turn or hum? Do your car lights dim a bit when trying to open the window? If so, motor is good and roof is stuck to to debris or stick seal and will need some assistance with someone pressing firmly on the window and someone pushing the button. Also make sure seal is not stuck together. If you can not hear the motor check the fuse. If fuse is good, use an ohmmeter to test switch and if needed the power to the roof motor

    My sunroof will not open. It will pop up and down but will not slide back. Someone told me there is a fuse for the sunroof, but I cannot find one.

    if it pops open then its not a fuse,its getting power if it pops open, the common problem with these maximas is that the retract arm that opens sunroof breaks and the only way to repair this is to replace the sunroof track.
