Question about Isuzu Rodeo

Open Question

Tailgate and glass will not open.

I have a 1996 Isuzu Rodeo. The tailgate window will not open. I can depress the lock, I hear a click, the tail gate wants to open but cannot until the window is lifted first. The tailgate window will not budge at all. What should I do? There are no dents. I have not been rear ended nor have I backed into anything. The spare tire has no problem swinging open. The tailgate window will not unlock.....

Remove the interior trim panel which will not be easy since the gate is up ---- you can then access the lock mechanism and will probably find a bent linkage rod or a broken plastic retainer clip.

You can take the panel off on the inside of the tail gate, and open it by manually pulling on the linkage rods at the same time.

Tail gate will not open


Not knowing the year,make or model this sounds like a bad actuator release motor, you will need to use the key to open the tailgate and then remove the panel to inside the gate, once inside you will need someone to hit gate button while you test for power and a good ground at the actuator , if there power and a good ground then replace the actuator, also makr sure the lingake is connected,

Tailgate latch is broken, can't open tailgate. Window is open.


unfortunatly there is no way to open the tail gate(without breaking the inside cover )but once you do that,your hand can fit inside the gate and all you have to do is feel around for the gate latch,pull it,then the gate will open. hope this helps(i have a 1996 blazer i had to do the same thing)!!

hi cjryan 9876 when you look on the outside of the lens there are 2 philips head screws & if open your tail gate there are another 2 philips head screws in there as well one of which is located through the locking tab for the tailgate once you undo these the tail light should fall out & then to get the tail light out of the socket give it a quarter turn anti clock wise

The keyed lock on my 98 passport on the tail gate has been punched in, I can't figure out even how to get the tail gate open, because the handle on the out side seems to be un atatched, I feel that if I...


I believe you have to open the rear window to open the tailgate??
Tailgate opens right to left [ passenger to driver ] side?
Tailgate handle will not work if window not open - feels like it is disconnected. The "button" releases the window only.
If you open the rear window and the tailgate still will not open. You need to remove the inside tailgate cover to get access to the handle and release switch. You can access the the window release the same way [ just a little harder to do]. You will probably end up breaking the vinyl panel to do this but so will the auto body shop and they will charge you $$$$$ to replace it.
