It may be that the gate has dropped on it's hinges, try lifting as you open. (i assume a side opening gate)

SOURCE: The gate unlocks but will not open. The handle

The release handle and latch assembly are two separate parts. Between them is a control rod that falls off.
Unfortunately, the only ways in there are to either cut a hole in the inside panel, reach in and pull the rod, or to drill a 1/4" hole 5/8" from the left side of the latch cover trim, 1" down from the top. There is only one bolt holding the assembly on and that is where it is. Once you have drilled it out, slide the assembly to the drivers side to disengage the tab near the lock end.
Usually you can get the assembly pulled far enough out to get to the rod. (don't forget that the electric solenoid is still connected)You can re-use the assembly by counter-sinking a tulip bolt in the 1/4" hole and putting a nut and washer on the other side. Use a zip-tie to secure the rod to the clip it fell off of.
You can usually get a new inner panel cheap at a local scrapyard.

SOURCE: My yukon 2006 lift gate

Hi,

I have had several of the Tahoes with the same issue... the fault is with the lock/unlock actuator inside the rear door. if it fails and doesn't move the release on the latch... the door doesn't operate properly.What you will need to do is to remove the upper trim panel by pulling it off the door towards the front of the vehicle (it's held in by clips) and then pry/pull back the lower to access the actuator and move the arm and release the door.after you get it open and replace the lock actuator for the liftgate. This should take care of your issue.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have 2005 chevy tahoe my doors all licks but my liftgate door with window stays open use to lock w all my doors? I havent check anytjing yet? I cant lock it.


Here is how it works !
Liftgate Locking Operation
The lift gate will lock any time the vehicle is shifted out of park on vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and at vehicle speeds exceeding 5 kph with manual transmission. This happens in conjunction with auto door locks if enabled or independently of auto door locks if the feature is disabled. This ensures that the lift gate is locked anytime the vehicle is shifted out of park or when the vehicle is in motion.
The lift gate 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 lift gate lock function has been received by the BCM. The BCM will then ground the control side of the lift gate lock relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit. Since the other side of the lift gate lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the door unlock relay to ground, the lift gate will lock. When an unlock function occurs the BCM will ground the control side of the unlock relay and the rear doors and lift gate will unlock.
The BCM also runs diagnostics on the lift gate 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 lift gate lock circuit and that the lift gate 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 lift gate lock relay battery positive voltage circuit


?€¢
A faulty lift gate lock relay


?€¢
An open or short to ground in the lift gate lock relay control circuit


?€¢
A short to ground in the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit


?€¢
A faulty BCM

Why my venture chevy 2005 liftgate wont open?


Likely a bad lock actuator in the lift gate.

If you look carefully you will find a manual release for it in the back. (You will have to crawl back there.)

Tail gate door will not unlock and open


remove the switch from the drivers door,use a jumper and a test light.
First test for power going out of the door lock switch when you lock and unlock the gate.
If you have power going to the gate lock then your lock acturator is bad.

1994 Jeep Grand cherokee rear lift gate


Well My 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the same problem and we had to just cut into the lift gate panel from the inside. It required cutting plastic but with a 94 looks arent everything and a working lift gate was worth it. But then we pealed back this black plastic mat under the panel and lifted up on the release bar(verticle bar that lifts the latch) and once we got it open we adjusted a little clamp that had slipped. Dont adjust it too much or when u lock it it wont lock! But sorry i dont know the name of the parts. But then u can screw the panel back in and it wont look to bad besides some cuts.

Back door wont unlock


I have a 1999 Chrysler T&C 3.8 liter like yours and it sounds
like you are having the same the same problem I had.
Every time you hit the door unlock or lock button, it made a loud
buzz like you just missed a question on a game show. ;-)

It turned out the problem was the rear lift gate lock actuator. The part costs
about $40 from the dealer if I can recall correctly.

The repair involves: 1st removing the middle and rear seats to get
access from the inside to the rear gate
(obviously you will have to remove the seats from the side doors
since the rear gate won't open yet)

Remove the plastic inside rear gate panel and molding (phillips screws)
Once you remove the panel, you may see a way to manually
open the rear gate. As I recall, I think there was a access opening
covered from the inside with a black weather/insulation tape.
Carefully removing this out of the way gave access to a way to
manually open the gate, making the rest of the work easy.

Remove the electrical connector and the mounting bolts
to remove from the actuator. It is attached to the inside
rear gate with 2 or 3 bolts (10 mm?)

Remove the old one and replace the part, then put it all back
together, make sure you reconnect the electrical connector

Takes about an hour for the whole job (max)

Hope this helps,

Wes
