I am assuming that you mean with the electric door lock and not the key. If the lock works with the key but not the electric, do the following. Open the rear door and find the electric contacts. (one side will have 4 spring load prongs and the door side will have a flat plate with brass/copper contact plates) Take a small knife or sandpaper and scratch off corrosion on the prongs and the plates. Once they are clean and shiny, the electric locks should work.

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.

Tailgate stuck


The auto lock burned out you need to go to dealer and get ripped off for $300 to have them fix it. Make sure you tell them the exact problem since it took 3 mechanics two days to figure mine out after i told them what was wrong the first time. Not too swift there.
