SOURCE: 2002 ford escape liftgate wont lock/unlock

either the motor that locks it is not working or some mice might have chewed some wires or something. first you will want to see if you have power going to the lock under the panel if yuou do then your lock motor is bad and needs replaced if you dont have power you need to check fuses if that still dont work u need to find out where your power stops at

Hello and thank you for choosing fixya.com. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a local auto parts store and request to have a diagnosis done. (while auto stores vary, this is usually a free service and only takes a couple minutes to complete) to see if any codes are brought up. If so, the representative can tell you what the codes mean, and what needs replaced or repaired. Let them know of the situation. Even if no codes show up, ask them to clear the codes. If this does not work, do the following. 1: make sure that the batter in your key fob is inserted correctly, and that it is the correct size and type. 2. Disconnect the + Positive cable on your battery. This will reset your the vehicles computer. Maybe this will allow the vechile to code up with the fob. If not, I would take it to dealership, or backto an auto part store for further assitance.

I thank greatly for choosing fixya.com. I hope this information is useful to you and helps you get your fob working again. Let me know if you need further assistance, or have any questions or comments. Feel free to rate this information at your earliest convenience.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge cavaran sliding door will not open inside or outside

You will have to unlock and open the door manually. Then look for the electrical contacts on the door. Usually they are near the front top of the door and door jamb. Look carefully around the inside edge of the door and you will find them. These contacts can get worn or dirty. cleaning them very carefully with a pencil eraser(assuming they are the flat kind).
Sometimes a wire can break off inside the door or doorjamb. You will have to disassemble the contact holder to check that.

I have a 2005 GMC Yukon that the rear hatch does not lock. Wouldn't be a problem but no manual key hole to lock it. Must be some kind of lock sensor. Is on the driver door panel or by the hatch?


The rear hatch locking is computer contolled .
The BCM also runs diagnostics on the liftgate lock relay control circuit and will set DTC B3825 as current and also send a Class 2 message to the DIC. The DIC will display REPLACE LIFTGATE FUSE to inform the driver that a fault has been detected in the liftgate lock circuit and that the liftgate is not locked. Faults that will set the DTC and cause the DIC to display the message could be any of the following:
• An open ECC fuse
• An open or short to ground in the liftgate lock relay battery positive voltage circuit
• A faulty liftgate lock relay
• An open or short to ground in the liftgate lock relay control circuit
• A short to ground in the liftgate lock actuator lock control circuit
• A faulty BCM

The liftgate lock relay supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit and the ECC fuse. The normally closed contact is connected to ground and the control side is connected to the body control module (BCM). A lock function will occur when a door lock switch activation, keyless entry lock transmission, auto door lock function or a liftgate lock function has been received by the BCM. The BCM will then ground the control side of the liftgate lock relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to the liftgate lock actuator lock control circuit. Since the other side of the liftgate lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the door unlock relay to ground, the liftgate will lock. When an unlock function occurs the BCM will ground the control side of the unlock relay and the rear doors and liftgate will unlock.
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
• The driver door module (DDM)
• The passenger door module (PDM)
• The body control module (BCM)
• The driver information center (DIC)
• The rear door lock switch
• The door lock relay
• The door unlock relay
• The liftgate lock relay--utility vehicles with liftgate only
• The reversible door lock actuators in each of the doors and liftgate
• LOCKS 20A fuse (rear lock/unlock relay supply voltage)
• ECC 10A fuse (liftgate lock relay supply voltage)

If i were to guess i would say you mite need a new lock actuator , but i don't guess . You could take the hatch inside panel off an check for B+ voltage for the lock actuation as someone pushes the switch . Or have it checked for codes .

Liftgate on 2005 uplander won't open


The locking mechanism on the rear lift gate for the Chevy Uplander has some plastic and rubber-coated parts that can get jammed. If you can pull back the panel from the inside top near the glass, you can reach down and try to spray some silicone lubricant into the lock. This could help get those parts unstuck so they spring back when you pull on the handle latch from the outside. Once you get the rear hatch open, I recommend taking out the locking mechanism and thoroughly lubricating it. Your rear lift gate will start to release very easily from then on.

2005 dodge durango rear hatch will not unlock to open


I own a 04 durango and the door lock actuator froze up internally and I could not open the rear hatch. After hours of research on my computer nothing seemed to fix the problem. I eventually figured it out myself. You must pull the screws out of the molding on the inside of the rear door. You can now pull the molding toward you and look down at the actuator and latch. You can pull on the molding quite a bit if necessary. I never broke mine and I was pretty agressive with it. Now, on top of the whole mechanism is the lock actuator. There should be a white plastic lever sticking out towards the driver side. If you can slide it from back to forward "forward is front of vehicle", the lock should be working. If not your door is not unlocking. My durango had 3 Torx screws on top of the actuator. Remove them. This will take the actuator off of the latch. Now that the actuator is not binding or holding the lock from moving, again try to move the white plastic lever towards front of vehicle. It should click and you should be able to open the door.

I just bought an equinox 2005 LS and I dont know how to lock the rear door.


To unlock the liftgate, press the unlock button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter twice or use the power door lock switch.
To lock the liftgate, press the lock button on the RKE transmitter or use the power door lock switch. The liftgate does not have a key lock cylinder.
To open the liftgate, pull up on the handle located in the center of the liftgate.
When closing the liftgate, use the molded handles to pull the liftgate down. Push the liftgate closed until it latches.

What's the code so the doors don't lock automaticly....what a pain this feature is.


page 10 of the book for the durango

1. Close all of the doors.

2. Place the key in the ignition and cycle the key from the OFF position to the ON position for a total of four times ending in the ON position, do not start the engine.

3. Press the drivers side power door lock switch to lock the doors within 30 seconds.

4. You will hear a single chime when the programming is completed.

5. To activate the feature again, repeat the above steps.

...And from pages 12-13:

To unlock the doors and liftgate: Press and release the UNLOCK button on the key fob once to unlock the driver's door, or twice to unlock all doors and liftgate. The illuminated entry system will also come on. The system may be programmed to unlock all the doors, on the first press, using the following procedure:

1. Close all the doors.

2. Place the key in the ignition and turn the key between the OFF and ON position consecutively for a total of four times ending in the ON position (do not start the engine).

3. Press the driver's side power door lock switch to unlock the doors and within 30 seconds to lock the doors.

4. You will hear a single chime when programming is completed.

Where do you find the fuse for the liftgate in a 2004 durango


There isn't one. Most likely the lift gate latch, if all the other doors lock and unlock. Cold also be the BCM. I have bypassed a few of them.
