Question about 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LTZ
My 2007 Avalanche tailgate won't unlock. The truck only has power lock/unlock so I can't just put a key in and open the gate. When I hit the unlock button the doors unlock and the lights blink but there is no sign that the tailgate lock is doing anything.

You can access it from the inside of the tail gate,there is a plate directly on the other side of the handle,Just take that plate off and reattach the rod mount or replace the handle if it's broken.

If you remove the ring around the handle you will get a better view of the two rods that connect the handle to the outter latches.The ring just snaps in.I think a flat head screw driver from the bottom works the best.Once you have access to the rods you can push the inward twords each other to pop the gate.If the are broken out twords the tail lights then a thin flat head in the gap betwen the tail lights and tail gate should be able to push the spring loaded latches in to pop the gate,but you may need to borrow a extra set of hands.Well hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a 07 Avalanche
unfortunately it is probably the lock actuators on all three, this is a known problem on those, I have worked at a chevy dealer for along time and have seen this many times usually due to water intrusion in the connector at the lock actuator, have been lucky a few times and been able to clean the connectors..
