What parts do I need to fix my 2004 GMC Envoy XUV's tailgate door? It will not open. It opened once a month ago, at a thrift store. but not since. Window works just not the tailgate. Help! TY

The endgate uses an electrical latch system. The latch system contains 3 separate electrical latches that are located on the upper left corner, upper right corner, and lower left corner of the endgate. The latches latch when battery voltage is removed. The latches will unlatch, or release when battery voltage is applied. The latches work in conjunction with a dual pivoting hinge located on the lower right corner of the endgate to allow the endgate to swing open from the left to right for access and cargo loading, or to drop to extend cargo space.

Do you know what diagnostic trouble code's are ? An electronic control module controls the unlocking of the tail gate an when problems like not opening happen ,DTC'S set in the endgate module ,pointing to the problem . Need sophisticated diagnostic tool to check it .
DTC B3745
The endgate control module supplies voltage for the endgate latch relay coil control circuit to the endgate latch relay. This output is used to energize the endgate latch relay when an endgate swing latch or drop latch request has been made. If the endgate module detects an open or short to ground on the endgate latch relay coil control circuit when a swing latch or drop latch request is made, a DTC is set.
Remove the endgate latch relay.
Connect a test lamp between the endgate latch relay coil control circuit of the endgate latch relay connector and a good ground.
Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
With a scan tool, command the endgate module to swing endgate.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
DTC B3967
The endgate module monitors the lower left endgate latch actuator and upper right endgate latch actuator circuits. When the endgate module detects an open or short to ground on the lower left endgate latch actuator and upper right endgate latch actuator circuits, a DTC is set.
You could try replacing the endgate latch relay . Do you know what a relay is ? Video's on youtube showing how they work an how to test . The only thing is , the relay is inside the endgate ,need to take trim panel off .Video's on youtube for that too , probably .

2000 GMC Jimmy 2wd My back window will not open.I neeed to get into the door to find out what latch part needs replaced.I cannot drop the tail gate until I get the door panel off. Howw do I get the panel...

If you go on the inside of the door see if there are any screws or a place where you can pry off the inside of the tailgate there should be a carpet type material in there you have to go behind it to get at the latch or try and fiddle with it on each sides of the gate.

1999 GMC Sierra truck tailgate release latches are broken and gate won't open?

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.

Repair broke tail gate latch on gmc truck

There should be 3 screws on the inside of the tailgate. Take those out and and the latch should come out. It's won't fully remove until you disconnect the levers from the handle. There may also be a couple of screws holding the actual locking tabs onto the sides of the tailgate. You should be able to diagnose the actual broken piece from there.

2004 gmc sierra 2500 hd tail gate wont shut with out slamming it hard 3 or 4 times and sometimes falls open what the F

Look around to see if there's anything impeding the movement of the gate. If there's nothing impeding the movement, slowly close the gate until the latches closes up against the latch anchor points (one on each side of the gate). One of these latches may be stuck in the closed position or partially closed causing them to not allow you to shut your gate. Or the could be stuck open and the ratchet teeth (the bumps on the inside of the latch that are suppose to snag when closed) may be worn or broken. If that's the case, you'll need to remove the panels for your gate in order to get into and behind the latch. Also try spraying some lithium grease into the latch to see if that helps. Don't use WD-40
