Hello
If you look at the latch where it conects with the striker pin it might be closed turn the key as if you were opening the lift gate and see if the latch moves open you might have to use a screw driver and work the latch open as you turn the key

Rear hatch won't stay up


If your rear hatch will not stay up then chances are shocks that are used to hold up the hatch are shot. If you replace the shocks that should solve the problem. I hope this helps you out.

2005 GMC BACK HATCH WON'T OPEN


It sounds like the lock actuator has failed or has a poor connection which won't allow the latch to release. What you will need to do is remove the inside rear hatch panel to access the lock actuator. Once you get to the latch use a flat screwdriver to release the latch being careful not to damage the glass.

Where is the fuse for the rear hatch on a 1993 chevrolet blazer? My rear hatch will not open at all. I can hear it ttrying to unlatch the rear windoiw but nothing happens.


If you can hear it then you don't have a fuze problem. More than likely it can be fixed by adjusting the catch in the tailgate. Open you hatch with the key and lower the tailgate. Remove the tailgate interior panel/cover and you'll see the catch for the window. Adjust the catch a little, tighten it up, raise the tailgate and close the hatch. Try your release on the dash again and see if this fixes the problem. You may have to repeat this a couple of times until you get it adjusted to where it needs to be. If this works, then reinstall the tailgate interior panel and you're all done.

Rear Hatch Won't Release


The hatch is probably "jammed".
Has the hatch opened by itself while you are driving? That is a symptom....
Using a second person/helper, press the "open" button while you pull hard to pop it open.
If it opens, then the lock mechanism needs adjusting and tightening. There are two bolts that hold the catch hook. Once you adjust the catch, be sure to "open" the latch before you close the hatch. (rhyme not on purpose)...

Hope this helps!

Long load, can't shut hatch, constant beeping.


Hi the only way of doing this is you know the catch on the lid that locks onto the boot floor when you shut the boot. Well if you use a screw driver and push the lock round as though the latch would when you shut the hatch.
I mean on the hatch not the bottom bit onthe car you can see on the hatch what locks onto the boot floor if you use a screw driver as if it was the lock itself then you can turn the catch so the hatch thinks its locked.
It sounds a bit confusing but hopefully you understand what im saying you can move it round with your finger also.

But remember when you have took the wood out to press the unlock boot button to reset the lock on the hatch not doing this will damage the mechanism on the hatch and will then need replacing.

Let me know if you need further assistance ok
