I just repaired a 2002 Aztek with a non working hatch. It was bad solonoid motors that were not releasing the latches.it is a fairly hard job to access the latches to release the hatch so you can get to the solonoids. You have toy crawl into the back of the vehicle and remove the bolts that hold the latch hooks. Once you have done this the glass top of the hatch will open. you can then use a screwdriver to reach down through the internal part of the latch and release it so you can access the bolts to disasemble the hatch to get to the solonoid motors. This is not a job a novice mechanic should atempt.It should be done by an experienced mechanic with the proper tools.

Well if the key doesn't work either then you have a broken or misaligned latch. Try to have someone pulling the hatch open while you operate the key. Once you have it open try to look to see if any parts are bent or broken.

Back hatch won~t open with remote or inside door locks will open manually nothing stuck or jammed?


Found this wiring diagram for lift gate, if that is what we're talking about? Not only check the fuses, check fuse circuit for voltage. Use a testlite.

2001 Chevy Blazer - I pushed the rear hatch button to open it. Now the rear hatch won't open at all. I also can't lock my doors while inside since I pushed the rear hatch button.


sounds like something may be shorted in your rear hatch switch and when you pushed the button to open it you may have blown a fuse. I would check your fuse and make sure they are all still good. I would also try to look inside the rear hatch and check the wires and see if there is something wrong with one of them.

Hatch won't unlock


Donald: Here are some comments on SubaruForester.org : "We just got a 2007 Subaru Forester> and we absolutely love it.

I was wondering if anybody out there has a solution to this small gripe:

The only way to open the rear hatch is to first unlock the driver's> side door, then hit the unlock all button, then walk back and open the rear hatch. It sure would have been nice if the rear hatch had a slot for the key, or there was a button on the remote you could press.

Anybody else have this gripe, and is there a solution?
---------
Two presses of "unlock" on the key fob unlocks all 5 doors.
--------------------------
If it has a key, try that.
==========
My only suggestion is double-clicking the unlock button, while standing next to the rear hatch. I know that on my 2003, it's sometimes a matter of timing.
==================
I remember reading somewhere (can't recall where) that sometimes
if you are parked on uneven ground the rear hatch can be a problem
to open. If you are on uneven ground, try moving the Foz to a more
even place.

My trunk/hatch release will not work on my trailblazer also liscn plate light


There should be a fuse also do you have a key fob. With rear hatch button on does that work if not check fuses for the body controller. Also check for power and grounds at rear hatch motor/actuator .
Good luck Steve

I have a 99 chevy tahoe that will not lock the doors unless I use the keychain remote or puch each lock down, same with unlocking. The lock button on both the driveside and passenger side do not work. Also...


With regards to the lock bittons on the driver and passenger side its the button themselves aka switch(s) that is your culprit. Why because the remote is getting the motor to open and close them . The only thing that doesn't is the buttons /switches themselves .
Now the rear latch a little different animal. Either the locking mechanism on the door itself is defective or the motor ( the thing you hear clicking) is weak.
This one your gonna need a shop manual for to do the correct testing.But being that te remote will not move it and neither will the manual push button I would lean towards the locking mechanism on the hatch/door its self. Use the shop manual its not that bad of a fix if you have a little patience.

Rx330 won't open rear gate


Inside the glove box on the left side there is an on/off switch, which m,ay have been bumped off thereby shutting off the power controls to the hatch. Check that first. Then press the unlock button on your key twice, then test all 3 power hatch buttons to test them, one each on lower left dash by the gas cap door release, one on fob and the one at the hatch. If they still do not work it is possible your door may need to be 'initialized" by your dealer due to power failure. I have seen this with seats and windows but never with the rear door....

96 Chevy Tahoe door lock problem


Hello Scullen27,

While I vigorously recommend owners wanting to work on their own vehicles should purchase the FACTORY WORKSHOP MANUALS... for one time little jobs there are a FEW good alternatives... that ae also FREE.

BBB Industries
maintains an very excellent technical database
for popular USA market vehicles:
TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETINS
and Circuit wiring diagrams
(
registration is required... as these are real documents)

A fuse would seem to be indicated ...
if your
control is sound a relay operation... but the
REAR-HATCH is not cooperating... THAT WOULD
be the place to start,

Hope this helps...
