Question about 1996 Isuzu Rodeo

1996 Isuzu Rodeo stuck tail gate

My Tailgate will not open. The lock depresses in , I hear a click but the tailgate winow will not open thus making the tailgate door stuck as well. The tailgate window needs to be lifted up before the door swings down. I have also used the interior tailgate opener button and can hear that click as well but still the Tail gate window remains stuck. The spare tire arm has no problem swinging open and the tailgate door wants to open but cannot until the tailgate window is open first. I live in snow country. Could it have froze or rusted? The snow is now all melted. And I have had no problems in the past with opening the tailgate other than the tailgate window never staying locked up after opening... How do I open the darn Tailgate?

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.

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)!!

Tailgate latch on my 2002 silverado is stuck in closed postion


Remove the molding ring from around the handle. Becareful not to break the taps that lock it in. After removing the molding you should see the handle mechanism. There is a rod coming in from each side (each one runs out the the actual latch). Make sure each rod is connected into the handle assembly. If it is not put the rod into the hole and find the retainer clip to keep it in place.
