Question about 2004 Chevrolet Suburban
My 2004 Chevy Suburban power door locks do not unlock when either fob or on driver or passenger side power unlock buttons. It will lock everything, but not UNLOCK. Can manually unlock, except for tailgate. The problem cropped up all at once, not a slow deterioration, and not one door, then the other, it was all at once. Not sure what let go, but I've got two main questions: 1. what could the possible fixes be for the general door lock dilemma (actuator (I would have thought there would be an actuator for each door), some kind of electrical short, other issue?) 2. In the interim, I'm ok with manually unlocking - but how do I unlock the tailgate without the fob or powerlocks working?! Isn't there some kind of manual method for unlocking the rear gate??! Thanks, Chris
Your issue involves the master control switch panel on the drivers side and or the passenger side as well some how the contact inside the switch assembly has either shorted out or no longer makes contact for the unlock side of the circuit. replace the drivers side panel switchs it's either a series of switc hs or mostimes one sigle board of switchs. you are better off going to an auto parts store rather than a GM dealership this will save you quite a bit on cash on the parts. now as to the rear tailgate. if it is electronic controled and there is an issue with the master switch you can,t manually unlock it because of a safty issue built in the system. you can manually unlock the passenger compartment doors for thew same reasons of safety but doesn't apply to the tailgate. just replace the parts and this will take care of the problem
