SOURCE: hatch-back door will not open

I can say I have had the same problem, only the back doors and the rear hatch/glass won't open using keyless remote from them freezing this Winter.  The front two driver/passenger doors will unlock with keyless remote but none of the rear doors, hatch or glass.  Since I had to replace the stoplight bulbs in the rear with one not working and I don't need a ticket on Memorial Day weekend (need to replace 2 at the same time is wise according to any good mechanic), I had to get the rear hatch open to get to the lamp assembly and replace the bulbs.  My thinking was that since my two front locks were opening but no others and my keyless remotes are working, it has to be a fuse or relay that is not working!  So, I talked with a NAPA rep and he said the "Day running lights" relay can be a temporary fix to get the rear locks open to replace the bulbs.  I looked up in the owners manual where both relay's are located and removed the "Locked" relay and "Day running lights" relay and put the "Day running lights" into the same slot where the "Locked" relay was not operating and it worked!  I got the doors unlocked and replaced my stoplight bubs replaced.  Now, I have a new problem, my Tahoe won't start!!  I'm assuming the relay wasn't supposed to stay in the wrong slot when operating the vehicle because I started the truck, and it started and died-started and died-same and again.  I think the wrong fuse can be used to fix another problem like a fuse.  But, a fuse you can leave in and deal with one operation in the vehicle not working until you can replace the fuse later when you purchase it.  But, not a relay!  Now, I think the confused electronics cause another component (possibly the fuel pump relay) to burn out with the wrong relay in place of another when the vehicle operates.  I should have known but I was so glad to get the doors open after two months and it being Memorial Day weekend.  Now I have to find out what else is wrong so don't make that mistake to avoid the same predicament.  Better to get the relay ordered and replaced than to have this happen to you.

Pull the black plastic plate from arond the handle stuck with double sided tape. The rod that was attached to the handle will be lose inside hard to get to (the connector is made of plastic) . Take both peces to a auto parts house ask for carberator link clips usally in the Help section.Replace both clips while you ars at it, you won't have to do it all over again like i did.

SOURCE: rear access open on 2005 Chevy Tahoe

I don't know if this will work, but at least it is worth a try. Spray some WD40 liberally over and into both tailgate latches. Try to get up inside using the straw extension. Open and close multiple times to work it in. I suspect there is an internal latch switch, which controls the display, that might be dirty, corroded, or just not working. Of course other causes are possible. I hope it works.

How does the 1999 Tahoe tailgate open?


The right side can be unlocked with the key, once opened, the left side can be opened. Mine, the left side requires me to push in slightly while ensuring the release handle is pulled to it's furthest point before it will unlatch. If the electrical contacts at the door frame are dirty, the door may not unlock when pushing the button up front thus requiring the key to be used in the rear door. If this is not the solution, the latch rods inside the door need adjusted which requires some mechanical expertise.

there are little metal rods that connect to the handle of the tailgate, just like the rods that connect your door handles to the door hinges and lock mechanism. just pop off the plastic cover over the tailgate handle and check and see if the rods are still connected to the handle.
