Question about 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

For some reason the back doors and the hatch cannot be locked by using the power lock button in the vehicle or on the remote. The strange thing is that you can unlock everything with either unlock button (the one in the vehicle and the one on the remote). Also, is there a way to lock the back hatch manually until we can get the problem solved? I am having the same problem (the back doors and back hatch will not lock) except that the locks will work occasionally. I believe it is something to do with the fuse box on the driver's side of the dash, but I am not sure.

Lets check the ECC fuse in the inside fuse block on left side of dash. That fuse controls power to the liftgate relay it is located on the "B" pillar passenger side This is the door post between front and rear seats. if the fuse is good listen/feel this area for the relay clicking.
Thanks

How do set the lock remote for a 2001 Honda civic


Try this:

KEYLESS ENTRY PROGRAMMING

Have all remotes for the vehicle on hand.

Make sure all the doors and rear hatch/trunk are closed during programming.

Only need to use 1 remote to get into program mode but all remotes must be programmed during the same session.

Each step must be completed within 5 seconds.

1. Sit in the car with all doors/trunk tightly closed

2. Turn the key to the ON position, marked by "II" on the ignition bezel so the dash lights come on, then within 5 seconds press the "Lock" button on the remote for 1 second or so and release the button.

3. Turn the key to the OFF position, marked by "I" on the ignition bezel - dash lights go off.

4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 three more times (A total of 4 times) - each step must be done within 5 seconds of the previous step.

5. Upon the 4th turning of the key to "ON", press the lock button on one remote, the locks will make a cycling sound (clunk), locks will NOT lock or unlock at this point, they will just make a noise. The system is now in programming mode. Do not turn key off.

6. Within 5 seconds of entering programming mode and within 5 seconds of each other, press the lock button ON EACH remote you are programming, for a second or so and release. This step needs to be completed within 10 seconds. Each time a remote button is pushed, the locks should cycle. Up to 3 remotes can be programmed.7. Turn ignition completely off and remove the key. Step out of car and close door. The remotes should be programmed and should work. If you have a trunk/hatch release, the button for this feature needs to be held for a few seconds before the trunk/hatch will "pop".

Automatic side door will no longer open with remote or console button in car. Also, both side door's locks will not pop up using all of our 3 remotes (1 door is automatic, 1 is manual). Lastly, the back...


Did these doors quit at the same time or over a period. It seems that the actuators for the locks have gone bad. With the mentioned doors, that's a lot weight for the actuators to unlock and pop open. With the remotes and console not working , that's more reason to think the actuators are the problem.

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.

Problem The rear hatch door will not unlock.


First, on the rear hatch, there is an actuator. On FX, when you close the trunk, it kind of **** the hatch closed all the way. When you press lock on the remote, this same actuator locks it as well.
Now,
1) when you unlock the car from the inside, go back there and press the button to open the hatch door manually, do you here any noises?
2) Close all doors, go back close to the hatch button and using the remote , lock the car and then unlock the car. you should hear a sound from the actuator locking and unlocking the lock on the rear hatch!

If you don't hear this, your actuator is inop.
Next step would be to check the fuses inside the car, on the left bottom driver side, and outside on the battery compartment.
It might be just a fuse.
If all fuses check ok, your actuator is most likely gone! Not ea expensive fix, just time consuming!

NOW, if you can hear the noises, then something is either broken inside the actuator or one of the cables is loose!
Hope that helps.
Also, what year and miles on your fx?

I can't lock the rear hatch door on my yukon. There is no key lock and the remote button locks all the other doors but the rear hatch remains unlocked. Also the button on the inside of the vehicle does not...


The lock is stuck in the "locked" position.
When you close the hatch, it is jamming the latch hook into the wrong area.

Manually open the hatch. Unlock the hatch (even tho the hatch is already open). there are two bolts holding the metal "loop", the loop has moved. Adjust the metal loop and close the hatch / lock it, etc.

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...

Power back door works with remote, but won't stay open


how are3 the gas cylinders...are they supporting the weight of the hatch?
if there is a leak the cylinder cannot support the weight of the hatch itself causing it to sit back down and lock the hatch again.

My back hatch door doen't want to open


You need to climb in the back and remove the plastic panel from the hatch to access the lock. There may be a small access door over the locking mechanism to help you avoid removing the whole thing. Could be dirty and sticky and fixable with a bit of graphite lube.
