Hi
Most likley the lock is sticking, once you get it open get some grease spray or WD40 spray inside the lock mechanism while using the remote to lock and unlock. do this many times as you are spraying the WD40 make sure you really get into the mechanism, you should get a small straw with the WD40 attach this and get inside the lock as much as possible. this is very common and often occurs wheen the weather goes from hot to cold or vice versa.

Also spray the lock hook part, this is the part the mechanism attachs to once shut. if this does not fix the problem the lock hook, may need to be adjusted, they often have 2 screws or bolts you simply half loosen them and re - align them. If you need more info on this please let me know
Regards
Dan

Liftgate wont open


If you live in the northeast, the gasket might be stuck with ice. wait for some sun, run the heater, and try later. If this works, once open, spray the rubber weatherstrip with silicone to help reject the ice next time.

The Liftgate Module does have something to do with the remote FOBs (it has the receiver for the FOBs) and could also have an effect on the courtesy lights, it senses an open liftgate and sends that info to the Body Control Module (BCM). An area of common problems are the wires in the rubber boot between the body and the liftgate, these wires need to be checked for breakage.

Tailgate on a 2002 trailblazer will not open. unlock button wont let it open. what fuse do I need to check or do I open from inside?


  • There was a Technical Service Bulletin concerning this.

  • Bulletin No.: 03-08-52-002
  • Date: March 27, 2003

  • Technical - Subject:
  • Remote Keyless Entry Inoperative (Reprogram Liftgate Module)
  • Models:
  • 2002-2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer, TrailBlazer EXT
  • 2002-2003 GMC Envoy, Envoy XL
  • 2002-2003 Oldsmobile Bravada
  • Condition
  • Some customers may comment that the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) is inoperative at times.

  • Cause
  • An anomaly has been identified with the software in the Liftgate Module (RKE functions). The Liftgate Module software is affected when the temperature is approximately 40°C (104°F).

  • Correction
  • Using normal SPS reprogramming procedures, reprogram the LGM Liftgate module. The information was released on TIS version 2.75 or newer broadcast in March 2003.

  • There is a fuse block under the rear seat on the drivers side. Fuse # 3 and # ^ are the ones you will check for the Lift Gate.
  • Often the problem can be in the harness going to the module.
  • Sometimes the module needs replaced and then reprogrammed.
  • Here is a copy of your owners manual for free http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/chevrolet/2002-Chevrolet-TrailBlazer.pdf

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.

How do you open the rear door wont work with the outside button


Hi, viewers. The liftgate latch of 2008 Acadia is electrically controlled by switches, fuses, modules, and sensors. If for some reason the liftgate doesnt seem to open under the normal operating conditions, you can still open it mechanically if needed.

* First, go inside the vehicle and lower the 2nd and 3rd row seats, and then locate the round access plug (visible and similar to a rubber grommet) from the liftgate lower interior trim panel.

*Second, use a small flatbladed tool to remove that access plug and expose the hole.

*Third, look through the hole and push on a silver lever located on the right to unlock the liftgate.

*Fourth, when unlocked, push the liftgate outward or, you may need an assistant to pull open the liftgate from the outside handle while you push the unlock lever.

Once opened, you can now reflect back as to why your liftgate wont function. I hope you get lucky in your quest. Have a nice day! : )

Liftgate touch pad inoperable. The fuse is not blown.


I'm having the same problem with my 2006 Rendezvous, I can't unlock it with the Unlock button of the remote but the Liftgate button does work. The Unlock button used to unlock all the doors and the liftgate, now it only unlocks the doors.
