Jump it. It has to have power to open. The PCM doesn't control the door locks.

2005 cadillac srx dash was going crazy/dead battery

Make sure your that the transmission is in Park "P" position in order to removed the key. I will suggest you to take your battery to your local Auto Parts to run a diagnostic to confirm that the battery will not longer hold power. If the battery is dead it means that it is time to replaced. Good Luck!

2011 SRX tailgate opening on its own when in park.

Do you get a tail gate ajar light before or after it opens?

Have you tried to close it with more force to see if that remedies the problem?

When you say "opening on its own" When exactly does it open or do you just notice its open sometimes but don't know when exactly it opened?

My 2004 srx some thing is draining the battery, i have had it check and the battery is good, stater is good,

It sounds like you may have a dead short some place. This typically occurs when a the plastic insulation gets worn off of a wire. You may want to check any wires that are in your door jams because that is usually where this happens. I hope this helps.

My rear tailgate will not lock- had an accident where a car smashed into me in the rear. the tailgate was replaced but did not realize the tailgate would not lock with key chain lock or manual lock from...

If this is an original equipment replacement part should work just like its predeceser before the accident. Just check that everything is wel connected and in place by removing the panels and take a look inside.

Rear window fluid fill 2004 SRX Cadillac

It uses the fluid from the main reservoir for the front windshield although each one has its own pump. Sometimes if the main is not full enough the rear will not work. If the main reservoir is full I would investigate the pump for the rear window. Hope this helps

Are you suppose to use premium fuel with a 2004 cadillac srx with the norstar system?

Really, you need to use what the manual reccomends, in your case that should be premium. While you will usually not suffer damage from using lower grade, you will suffer performance and economy loss.

Auto tailgate warning light is on dash board but tailgate closed.

I have a similar problem, my tailgate stopped working with the outside handle and the remote but can be opened manually from the inside. I don't have an alarm so there is no problem with that but did you get a solution for the tailgate problem that I could try?

Keyless entry no longer works, battery in fob is good.

Yep that is most likely the problem. If it worked when you dropped it off and not when you picked it up, they screwed it up. I would bet that where they picked up the power for the DVD player they created a short. If they accidentally eliminated the power feed to the tailgate lock the circuit is not complete.
