Try to reset the tailgate by removing the no.7 (7.5 amp) fuse in the underdash fuse box. Open and close the tailgate manually, reinstall the fuse, and try the open tailgate button. If that doesn't work you would have take it to the dealer, where they can check for DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes). Honda Al

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: tailgate latch on my 2002 silverado is stuck in closed postion

Remove the molding ring from around the handle. Becareful not to break the taps that lock it in. After removing the molding you should see the handle mechanism. There is a rod coming in from each side (each one runs out the the actual latch). Make sure each rod is connected into the handle assembly. If it is not put the rod into the hole and find the retainer clip to keep it in place.

My tailgate sensor light wont go off. I have opened and closed my tailgate and tailgate window but the warning light will not go off which is cause all the dome lights to stay on in the jeep. please help


Even if the tailgate locks properly there may be something blocking the light switch. Happened to me after carting firewood and the trunk had lots of wood chips and sawdust. I cleaned it out with a paint brush and vacuum and the light was fine - but it did take a couple of tries!.

Light for hatch stays on but its a 2 door soft top


Check the tailgate. It should have a switch on it that warns if the tailgate/hatch is ajar.

Tailgate on a 01' Ford Windstar LX is rattling.


From your description, I believe your tailgate is not latching when you close it. Slamming it shut instead of simply closing it should solve your problem

TAILGATE OPEN WARNING LIGHT IS ON WHEN TAILGATE IS CLOSED


Sound like your tail gate switch has failed or maybe a fuse

I would take these actions :

1. Check fuses
2. Replace Tailgate switch
3. Take to Auto electrician as it could be a short in your wiring harness.

Hope this helps

Tailgate failure on honda accord tourer 2004


Maybe a little late here but i have a fix for this after turning down my dealers generous offer of a 750gbp fix i did some extensive googling and found this.... With your ignition on open the tailgate using the catch inside then turn off ignition and disconnect the battery for a minute. Reconect the battery and turn on ignition and let the warning lights go through their cycle. With the ignition still on shut the tailgate and hey Presto should be as good as new.

Auto tailgate warning light is on dash board but tailgate closed.


I have a similar problem, my tailgate stopped working with the outside handle and the remote but can be opened manually from the inside. I don't have an alarm so there is no problem with that but did you get a solution for the tailgate problem that I could try?

Even when doors and tailgate shut the door warning


with the door open push the door switch and tailgate switch closed manually. if the warning stays on, replace the switch. if it stops, adjust the switch to make sure the door or tailgate pushes it down far enough.
