You will have to get into the rear gate and disconect all wiring one by one and pass them threw the hole where the wires enter the gate.Unfortunetly this may be the only way.

2009 chev tahoe rear hatch wont open no power on #44 fuse which feeds latch wireing schematic referances a l/gate relay that feeds fuse ? CANT LOCATE REALY?

This is a problem with your vehicle Chevy's with lift backs .Look at your owners manual there is an axes slot on the inside of the tail gate you will have to cut through it .Its small then you can manually open with a screw driver .That's the good news. The bad news is the motor costs 4 to 5 hundred dollars and the plastic part that breaks is worth 2 cents but you can't buy that with out the motor last time I had to do this I made a new better part 12 years ago it still works no problems .

Lift gate won't lock

Could be the latch in the gate. Could be wiring, they tend to break at the top of the gate where the wires goes into the body. Also could be the body control module.

Why liftgate acuator clicking when lift gate is open

I would bet on the liftgate module (LGM) It controls all that stuff back there,wiper,defrost,gate ajar light,gate lock and unlock ect. Might try wiggleing the wiring boot where the wires go from the body to the gate,if it changes anything,bet on a broken wire inside that boot.
If not the LGM is my first thought.

Need a wiring diagram for a 1997 Nissan quest xe fuel pump assembly it has 4 wires and my not so smart brother in law tried to change fuel pump abd instead of disconnecting the plug he cut the wires so I...

Usually, replacement pump will come with wiring instructions. If dumbo lost them, might go to friendly parts store and ask to look at chart in another one, or simply look at wiring diagram in your shop manual.

Left turn signal cuts fuse but the right works on our 89 gmc truck

There's a short in the wire harness for the left side..Look at the wires near the tail gate where the plug for trailer wires would connect. You might have a bulb with a short to ground too.

Renault Clio Phase 2 - tailgate. Anyone know if

tail gates are completely assembled before fitting on the assembly line and that includes the wiring harness for the gate . So I would expect a harness connector either in side the gate or in a body panel trim close to the gate.

Gate light on even when gate is closed

Open gate and find where the wiring enters the gate (bottom of door) pull back the rubber insulator and check for broken wires or wires touching each other.

Engine has no power under 3000 rpm

have a look at the EGR valve if its stuck open you loos all the turbo boost till the EGR valve closes
it could also be the turbo gate valve (wast gate) sticking open so the turbo cant cut in till its screeming then the gate shuts and the old girl picks up her skirts and go's,,, you may get away with just blanking off the EGR valves to try them out but the turbo is a different mater,,,

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.
