Can't get trunk ajar light and bell to go off in my 2008 Kia Sedona - what can I do?


Sounds like you will need to move the "striker" pin out a little. This pin is located on the floor (sill panel) when you open the tailgate. By moving the striker out, it will allow the latch on the tailgate to close in the second position instead of just the first. When the latch is closed in the second position, your light and bell will go out. If you still can't get them to go out after adjusting, then the latch inside the tailgate has went bad and will have to be replaced.

Tailgate door wont latch


IT sounds like you closed the Trunk/ Liftgate with the Latch partway closed. Lube the Latch and hopefully it is not bent. If it is not latching, you can try and ensure it is aligned propery (use a piece of Tape and see where it is hitting the STRIKER...

If not, you are going to be replacing the Latching Mechanism.

GMC Envoy 2004 XUV tailgate won't latch closed. Pressure switch makes latch click but when I go to close it, it does not latch.


Two things happen. One the latch is already latched and therefore it's closed before the gate shut, When you try to close it you might notice that the door don't close all the way. This doe'snt have to be thwe case. the other thing that happens if the lock mechanism is working, You here it click? The latch is stuck as the opener is stuck. You might get lucky and spray the latch with Blaster or other rust buster type penatrant. Theres angles though the opening of the latch . Spray on several angles and repleatly close the door trying to vibrate the Penatrant into the stuck area. Looking at the latch use a screw driver to move the latch and see if you can cycle it though it's positions to see if you can latch and unlatch it with the tool and reopen by pullung the handle ( you may need to try ther inside handle too and even the remote openner if you have one. Ussaaaly you need to push the button twice to open the rear hatch so it may take a few trys and spraying to get it to come loose.. Some vehicals stay closed a long time and stuck is the way to think.. But if the door is used often the linkage inside the door mayh have come off the the latch is closed and the linkage doesn't open the laTCH AND THE THING MANAGED TO GET CLOSED WITHT THE DOOR OPEN.

The tailgate lock on my Volvo XC90 is sticking, and now I can't get the tailgate to close. What am I doing wrong?


Try spraying into the lock mechanism with a spray lube like WD40. Work it right into the lock and don't be shy about how much. Work the latch a few times and spray it again.If this works it is only temporary. Get some white lithium grease and take the panel off and lube the latch up with that for the long term. Hope this helps.

Tailgate jamed shut


under the carpet installed on the tailgate door, there is a hole. put a screw driver in it and manually flip the latch open, to start.
yjen take the door panel off, one screw with the interiro handle, and pull the rest off,
watch the auto release slidw side to side, you will find a broken piece here, I made an extension piece with a plastic hook and screw, works fine for over a year, lube all latch parts with wd 30 once opened.

Tailgate will not close and stay shut


there are bolts on the side of it and on the back and posiblly the bottom. take them out. just watch when you take out the ones in the middle of the back side your handel will fall out. take off that black cover.and you should be able to see inside of the tail gate.

Rearwindow/ door


if there are no broken wires inside the tailgate try lubing the latches with WD40 and open and close the tailgate several times. If the latches are properly closed on both sides the window will not work

Tailgate 2002 sierra


I had the same problem with my 2003, no adjustment on mine, I resolved the problem by lubricating all the movable parts inside and outside the tailgate, both locks, and the internal linkage, and joints, I loosened things up with WD40, waited a few days and did the final lubrication with white lithium greese. Any other liquid greese will also work fine. dont forget to follow up everyone few month.
