SOURCE: rear liftgate 99 Olds silouette van won't open

I had the same problem. You can't take the panel off without having the hatch open. I had to pull it loose
under the window and squirt about a hole can of WD-40 in on all the door mechanism. When I got it open I found out that there is a hole in the bottom of the door about the size of a quarter that would allow
gravel dust and stuff in and rust the components and the lock making the door stay locked all the time.
After the wd-40 I pushed the lock & unlock button many times and it finally unlocked. I then opened the hatch and removed the panel and then I unhooked the lock motor so that it would not happen again.
It has been that way for 4 years now with no problem.

The easy part is you just need the latch for the liftgate. The hard part is getting to it and opening the liftgate to replace the latch. You should be able to pull the liftgate trim off most of the way with the gate closed and try to manually actuate the latch to open the gate. You may have to go so far as breaking the latch from the inside to open the gate and then replace your latch.

SOURCE: power lock/key will not open rear liftgate

Any of these three causes may apply to your situation, specifically the malfunctioning of the 1) relay system, 2) switch motor, or 3) the switch/button itself. Here's a handy diagnostic article that explains this:

SOURCE: 2005 Suburban Liftgate will not open

HAVE A FRIEND PUSH ON THE GLASS WHEN YOU TRY TO OPEN IT THE NEXT TIME. THE LATCH INSIDE IS LOOSE AND NEEDS TO BE TIGHTENED. BY PUSHING ON THE HANDLE IN THE GLASS DOOR YOU CAN RELIEVE THE PRESSURE FROM THE LOCK AND OPEN IT THEN LOOK ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE HANDLE IN THE GLASS THERE IS A SMALL METAL PEG WITH A NUT AT THE BOTTOM I THINK IT 7/16 OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. TIGHTEN IT UP AND YOURE ON YOUR WAY

SOURCE: Back liftgate on Plymouth Grand Voyager won't open

Sometimes the strike post needs readjusted, but there is a connection inside of the hatch that goes to a solenoid, but you need to take the panel off to see if anything is rusted in this area that is preventing the solenoid from doing it's job. Once you are in there it would be a good time to lubricate anything that is corroded; also, this would be a good time to look for any broken parts.

I just bought an equinox 2005 LS and I dont know how to lock the rear door.


To unlock the liftgate, press the unlock button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter twice or use the power door lock switch.
To lock the liftgate, press the lock button on the RKE transmitter or use the power door lock switch. The liftgate does not have a key lock cylinder.
To open the liftgate, pull up on the handle located in the center of the liftgate.
When closing the liftgate, use the molded handles to pull the liftgate down. Push the liftgate closed until it latches.

The rear lift gate on my 2006 Lincoln Navigator will not open automatically or manually and there appears to be no way to access anything inside the door from inside or out.


POWER LIFT-GATE OPERATION - To open the optional power liftgate, push the button on the instrument panel , press on your five-button key fob (if equipped), or press and release the control located in the left rear quarter panel (Figure B). To unlatch the liftgate glass, push the button ) under the center of the license plate lamp shield, or press on your five-button key fob. Do not open the liftgate or the liftgate glass in a garage or other enclosed area with a low ceiling. Keep clear of the liftgate when operating the rear switch. To open the liftgate manually, pull the handle located on the liftgate to release the liftgate from the vehicle. The power system will take over when you release the handle. To close, make certain the rear window is closed, and then pull down the liftgate a few inches to activate power closing. Closing the gate rapidly or more than a few inches may activate the obstacle detection feature and stop the power system.------------ Also click this link for more help:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/05/power-liftgate-on-will-not-open-on.html ------------ This should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

When i use the key fob to lock the doors the back glass dont lock, ???????


This solution applies to models:
2002-2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer, Trailblazer EXT and Trailblazer SS
2004-2007 Buick Rainier
2002-2007 GMC Envoy, Envoy XL, and Envoy Denali
2002-2004 Oldsmobile Bravada
2005-2007 Saab 9-7x

Condition/Concern:
Rear liftgate glass will not lock when using the key fob or door switch unless the lock button is pressed a second time. All other doors will lock normally. This could be the result of the liftgate glass lock rod not adjusted correctly. This lock rod travels from the liftgate lock actuator to the glass release push-button cylinder.

Recommendation/Instructions:
Remove the inside rear liftgate trim panel. Disconnect the threaded lock rod clip at the end of the push-button glass release and rotate this clip 1 complete turn at a time making the lock rod longer. This will be the only threaded lock rod visible when the trim panel is removed and the liftgate is raised.
Note: For the rear glass to release, the rear liftgate latch must be in the closed position. For test purposes only, this latch can be made closed to make this lock rod adjustment.

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

Power lock/key will not open rear liftgate


Take the inner door panel apart, and take the lock mechanism out. It is probably rusted solid. You may need to buy a new assembly. If you're lucky with a little patience and some good oil, you'll be able to free it up.
