If you are fairly handy with this kinda stuff, you can but you might want to get it done. the key-hole on those tend to sieze, all i did was take it apart and put some WD40 on it then lubed it up. best way to get to it is taking the plactic backing on the inside of the tailgate off.
hope it helps

Cannot open my tailgate


Check your local auto parts junk yard and locate a similar truck that was wrecked on its side or front and get the parts off of that vehicle taking notes on how it is installed. That might be cheaper than a body shop.

Cannot open my tailgate


I am sure you have found your solution by now... but just in case: My wife did the same thing.. you can reach in on the right side and push down on the rod to open. There are aftermarket handles available on ebay and other sources for around $35. I am currently searching install instructions as I just got mine in today.

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche with an inoperable tailgate lock.


sounds like the tumbler is bad, try to replace it yourself , if you have an electronic chip in your key you have to go to dealer to get it installed. cheapest way to fix this is order a new locking tailgate handle from jc whitney or somewere and replace the whole thing.
