There are gas charged mini-shocks which open the door. Get a new set on ebay, stay away from the dealer. They are not hard to replace, tricky part is to have someone there to hold it up while you work on it so the hatch does not fall on your head. I am sure any garage could do this for you in less than a half hour if you are not mechanically inclined.

2009 buick enclave rear hatch closes by itself after a sudden jerk. The switch inside opens it. If I try to hold the hatch up, it puts heavy pressure down.


Check that there is or was a recall on the lift gate switch. This is likely the issue but it did not get fixed.

I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer and I can get the Rear Hatch to open but the tailgate won't come down?


Hi, check your lift supports or the hinges. If they're dented or bent, they might let the hatch open but not come back down.

Here's a link with a picture of the locations of the lift support and hinges. I hope this helps.

The rear latch does not open easy and doesn;t stay up. Whats wrong?


There should be two hydraulic struts - one on either side of the hatch/tailgate. If these struts have failed, the hatch/talgate will not stay open. Also, since these struts are compressed when the hatch/tailgate is closed, they provide positive lifting pressure when you unlock the hatch, pushing it away slightly from the latching mechanism. Replace the struts, and you should be all set.

2004 pontiac aztec rear hatch latch


HIt the unlatch button twice, sometimes three times. As it was explained to me
it has to be tight in the winter so it doesn't fly up in the summer. You could also try cleaning the damper rods on either side of the hatch, and make sure that the
mounts for them are still tight. It's the nature of the beast.

2007 gm Yukon , hatch will start to open when activated but then stops itself before reaching the top and starts closing. Does not have any suspension to stay up by itself when opened and lifted manually


If one of the "suspension" or Lift Support" parts to the rear hatch fails. The other one will not have the energy to keep the hatch open. When the hatch gets to a certain point the door closure senses inaccurately that someone is pushing the hatch down to close. The reason behind this is that there is enough force on the engine lifting it that it is "tricked" into thinking that it is being closed.
This is probably the most likely explanation. The solution is to replace the weak lift support.
Here is a link to a supply house that should have the replacement. It is important to follow the instructions when installing this item.

HOW TO OPEN LIFT GATE OF 2005 YUKON XL. I ASSUME THAT THE RELAY UNDER THE HOOD IS GOOD, SINCE ALL OTHER FOUR DOORS WORK. (LOCK-UNLOCK). I THINK THAT IT MIGHT BE A SOLEONID IN THE LIFT GATE ITSELF. NO KEY...


have you had someone try the unlock while you listen at the hatch to see if you hear the solenoid working?
My guess is your going to have to remove the rear hatch panel to gain access

Rear hatch doesnt open


Sounds like the mechanism has come apart inside the hatch itself. Can you open it with the key? Keep in mind when you use the key, you have to leave it turned and in the hatch otherwise it won't open. Had a similar problem on my Golf and had the dealer repair it for me.
