My 95 GMC safari, rear hatch stuck closed on passenger side

My 95 GMC safari, the hatch at the rear is controlled by power locks and only the driver's side will open. The passenger side won't unlock/open, thus rendering rear access impossible! How can i manually open the hatch and fix this problem? It is a real pain! Help please.

You have to crawl in the back remove the panels and find the actuator(s), when you find them check for any linkages the may have fallen off. Gm uses little clips that get brittle and break. if it is a clip reinstall rod with a new clip or reinstal rod and secure with mechanics wire.

If the actuator is broken you can hook up a volt meter to the pin outs and test for power by hitting the door lock unlock button. If there's power then chamces are that the actuator is faulty. if theres no power check ground connections fuses relays and re test. good luck

I have a 2005 GMC Yukon that the rear hatch does not lock. Wouldn't be a problem but no manual key hole to lock it. Must be some kind of lock sensor. Is on the driver door panel or by the hatch?


The rear hatch locking is computer contolled .
The BCM also runs diagnostics on the liftgate lock relay control circuit and will set DTC B3825 as current and also send a Class 2 message to the DIC. The DIC will display REPLACE LIFTGATE FUSE to inform the driver that a fault has been detected in the liftgate lock circuit and that the liftgate is not locked. Faults that will set the DTC and cause the DIC to display the message could be any of the following:
• An open ECC fuse
• An open or short to ground in the liftgate lock relay battery positive voltage circuit
• A faulty liftgate lock relay
• An open or short to ground in the liftgate lock relay control circuit
• A short to ground in the liftgate lock actuator lock control circuit
• A faulty BCM

The liftgate lock relay supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit and the ECC fuse. The normally closed contact is connected to ground and the control side is connected to the body control module (BCM). A lock function will occur when a door lock switch activation, keyless entry lock transmission, auto door lock function or a liftgate lock function has been received by the BCM. The BCM will then ground the control side of the liftgate lock relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to the liftgate lock actuator lock control circuit. Since the other side of the liftgate lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the door unlock relay to ground, the liftgate will lock. When an unlock function occurs the BCM will ground the control side of the unlock relay and the rear doors and liftgate will unlock.
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• The driver door module (DDM)
• The passenger door module (PDM)
• The body control module (BCM)
• The driver information center (DIC)
• The rear door lock switch
• The door lock relay
• The door unlock relay
• The liftgate lock relay--utility vehicles with liftgate only
• The reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors and liftgate
• LOCKS 20A fuse (rear lock/unlock relay supply voltage)
• ECC 10A fuse (liftgate lock relay supply voltage)

If i were to guess i would say you mite need a new lock actuator , but i don't guess . You could take the hatch inside panel off an check for B+ voltage for the lock actuation as someone pushes the switch . Or have it checked for codes .

Rear door latch 1993 GMC Safari stuck


If you stick a screw driver in the door latch and pull while pulling the door handle to open it should open the latch. Be sure to clean it up and re-grease the latch so it doesn't happen again.

Driver side Hatch will not release. Passenger side opens.


At the center of the rear door is a actuator that has rods that go to both side and the clip felloff/broke on the Driver(left)side if it has a handel on the inside if you take that apart you can then pull the inside skin back far enough to pull the rod with a pliers and open the door and then make the repairs

2004 Gmc safari rear electric lock doors will not unlock and the doors will not open.


This may be a Body Control Module (AKA, BCM) issue, this module controls these functions, wsaw this same issue on a Buick, it was the BCM, you will have to have an active system tester with live data stream cycle the locks to see what the problem is, as far as I know the dealer is the only place that has this type of dedicated test gear.
