    I have an 1987 RAM D150. The tailgate worked fine at first and then one afternoon while hunting I made the mistake of slamming the gate shut, one handed, (gun in other) while holding the passenger end of the gate. I dont know if I twisted something or what cause I had to release it with a screwdriver useing the release at the catch instead of the handle as it would not function. It will function now but only with great effort. When I smallmed the gate the passenger side closed but the driver side did not and the torsion seems to have damaged something.

    I have a 1985 Dodge Ram and the handle doesn't work either. I tried to take it apart to get inside, but I can't take it apart because it is all welded together.

How do you replace the interior door handle on a 1985 Dodge Ram pickup?

Sounds to me like its the bar that is attached to the outside door handle button. usually the 2 handles (in and out) operate using 2 different devices which are hooked to the door latch. The inside handed uses a cable and the out side uses push rods. You will have to remove the door panel first then you see what I`m talking about , be easy with the panel so you don`t break the plastic clips that hold it to the door though. I must warn you this is a real pain in the rear so unless your up for a challenge spend the money and take it to some one that does this type work........good luck..

Tailgate will not open; handle will not move

Either ,something is binding inside the tailgate, or broken.
You can get to the mechanism from the inside panel of the tailgate-- by
removing the screws that down the inside panel.
Once you remove the panel you should be able to open the tailgate by
pulling on the thin cable to unlatch the latches from both ends of the tailgate and a good look at the handle mechanism will tell you what wrong.
Good Luck.

06 Silverado tailgate stuck closed

You should be able to get in between the fender and tailgate with a long screwdriver or piece of flat metal and push the catch back into the tailgate. Then pull the handle to release the other side and the gate should open. Hope this helps.

Auto tailgate warning light is on dash board but tailgate closed.

I have a similar problem, my tailgate stopped working with the outside handle and the remote but can be opened manually from the inside. I don't have an alarm so there is no problem with that but did you get a solution for the tailgate problem that I could try?

Check the distributor for cracks and check the rotor inside the distributor, it may be worn out.

The handle is removed by pulling the panel inside the tailgate, just below the top of's held on by 6 or 8 screws. The latches on the bed itself are held on by torx head bolts, if I'm not mistaken
