SOURCE: Tailgate won't lock on my
I have the solution to every one out there with tailgate lock problems......I had the very same problem but wasnt interested in getting a power lock.......Here goes.....it costs you some wd40 or liquid wrench.....nothing else......open the tail gate.....you will see the screws that hold the handle in place.....take off the two outer screws only....then pop off the handle cover....yes it does come off without breaking.....you will see something shaped like a "C".....it should move back and forth.....with the tailgate closed you should be able to move that "C" back and forth...it swivels on a pivot you can see in the opening above the tailgate handle.......this is the lock mechanism.....mine was seized up.....anyways......with the tailgate still closed squirt some wd40 or liquid wrench in the area directly above the tailgate handle........that "C" thing will move again and your problem is over...email me if you figured it out........
I was delighted with the fix.....and it's so easy to do.....then put everything back in its place......tell everyone you know....

check for a blockage in the line or piched if thats ok
then the is a fuel pressure sensor that can cause a p0446
you have to take the fuel tank out and the sensor is on the fuel pump module
you may want to take it and get the EVAP SYSTEM SMOKE TESTED
hope this helps

if you have any knowledge of automotivce electrical, (and that you need to use a "circuit tester" and not a test light) test for power when someone presses the button. it wouldnt be uncommon for most vehicles for the lock actuator/solenoid/duty actuator to wear out, get weak and fail. this is most probable. given that this is an 08, have you checked withe dealer to see if its still under warranty. if we are only talking a few miles and they wont do anything, look in your owners handbook and get the 1 800 number and get GM's customer service involved. cheers.

Do a bench test on the starter. Remove starter, hook up a ground cable to starter, and positive to two prongs on starter and it should spin. You can do this in vechile too but not suggested due to risk of injury. If it doesn't spin, probally a solenoid or the starter it self. Unlikely but possible.
