    I cannot open the trunk with my key so I can't try this. However, if it was just sticky like you suggest, I would hear the solinoid clicking anyway. I don't hear that.

Check for any loss latch adjust or applied WD 20-40 in the latch system, try to force work with the key, and after, try with the remote.

    Then you have a problem tih this solenoid or motor; in other vehicles this system work with an air system, any leak there, caused this fault. Need take off the panels to check it. Well there is an interlock when you lock the doors that also locks the

    Might be the mechanism (electronics) in the trunk that is
    defective. I'm guessing the part is rather expensive. Did you buy this
    car from a dealer? Can you take it back to have it checked? Have you
    tried the key in the trunk lock? I have the earlier model (2003) so I'm
    not sure if there was a change between the 2003 and 2004.5 model

    Make sure that it is not in valet mode (see owners manual). I think if
    the glove box is locked then the trunk latch is disabled.

    Another idea, and I had this problem, sometimes the rubber seal around
    the trunk handle (switch) creeps into the gap and prevents the switch
    from being activated. Just press harder or maybe shift the rubber seal
    around a little. Worst case, unscrew the switch an reposition the
    rubber seal.

    Keep us updated.

Looks like someone tried to shimmy my locks last night on truck remote will unlock door but doors will not open cant get in my truck help please

Call a locksmith, The should be able to use a slim jim to open the doors but you'll probably have to take it to the dealer to have them remove the door panels and fix any broken linkage that may be there. Unless you can do the repairs yourself.

How do unlock the door on a chevy pick uo truck

  • Use the key. Insert the ignition key into the lock on the driver's side and turn the key counterclockwise until you hear a thump. Return the key to its original position and remove it from the lock.
  • 2 Use the remote control for keyless entry. Unlock the doors with the remote control on your key fob. Press the button with the picture of an open lock once to unlock only the driver's-side door and twice to unlock all the doors.
  • 3 Call OnStar. OnStar can unlock your car remotely regardless of your location. You must have an active subscription to OnStar and your personal identification number (PIN) to unlock your Silverado this way. OnStar is free for one year on all new GM vehicles, but you must pay a monthly fee after the subscription expires if you wish to keep the service active.
  • 4 Call a locksmith. A locksmith can unlock your Silverado if you do not have your key.
  • 5 Break a window. As a last resort, you can break one of your truck's windows and unlock your door from the inside. This will probably set off your Silverado's alarm. If you find your key inside the truck, put it in the ignition immediately after unlocking your door and turn the starter to the "On" position to deactivate the alarm.

The rear doors probably dont come w accuators in them. Meaning that the rear doors alot of times don't have power options. If you are certain that your rear doors have factory power locks then I would say it's a wire somewhere...did you try a double click of the unlock button. My two door chevy truck unlocks the driver door with one click and the pass door requires a double click. Hope this helps !

Did these doors quit at the same time or over a period. It seems that the actuators for the locks have gone bad. With the mentioned doors, that's a lot weight for the actuators to unlock and pop open. With the remotes and console not working , that's more reason to think the actuators are the problem.

Passenger side front door will not unlock

Sounds like your power door lock actuator is bad. When this goes the door is unable to be unlocked using remote , the power lock switch, or by hand. Ive got the same truck and had the same problem. Found the actuator on ebay and once i was able to get the door open( had to pull back the panel from the inside and work the linkages to unlock the door) It wasent too bad to install. Good luck!

Remote Door Lock/Unlock will not work.

At first look, I would have guessed that your battery in the door opener was dead, but that is not the case. I suggest driving to a nearby Chevy dealer and ask one of the salesman if he/she can help. They have always been helpful to me. If not try another one as they are in business to sell not only cars, but service also. They will be your best bet to fixing it. :D

Remote control no longer opens the lock

Sounds like the button to unlock doors on the fob is worn out. You can purchase a new one or used from your local recycle yard.
