Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Equinox 2008 suv and after having my truck detailed (cleaned) in and out the back trunk will no longer open. All other door locks open fine with the automatic opener. Is there not a manual opener inside the vehicle somewhere like an opener for the gas or hood to the engine? Can it just be a fuse? Is there no key opening outside of the trunk? I have never seen such a problem. Not even able to open from the inside, no latch nothing. I must be missing something! Thank you any info will be handy. Rose

Call a Chevy dealership in your area and ask for the parts counter and those fellas should be able to answer your question.

If you can't unlock the door with a key, you may be able to go under the car and connect a jumper cable to the starter wire like you would to the battery.

I cannot seem to open the tailgate door to my new 2011 Chevrolet Equinox. Can you advise what I may be doing wrong. I am pressing the back button just above the license plate but it is flat and not...

check and make sure it is not locked, there should be a trunk switch on the key-less remote, if it is not working then the fuse is blown, should be located on the driver-side under/by the steering column. Hope this helped Tim

Keys lock in trunk alarm will not allow trunk switch to lock

The solution is to pull out the back seat to get into the trunk. There are two bolts holding the bottom part of back seat (bolts located between bottom and top sections). Then pull out bottom section of back seat and you see the hinge for the top section, remove the bolts and then you can lift up and access the trunk. It's not that hard.

2006 Equinox water leak coming from spare tire compartment

I had the same problem. It is due to a leak in the weather stripping on the back gate. My dealer replaced that. Now, the front of the truck is getting soaked on the inside because the weather stripping around the doors are cracked. I am considering buying a car cover because I can't afford 1000 bucks for something so stupid. Never had this problem with any other Car or SUV.
