Hello rear hatch wont open from outside I removed the light on inside of panel on hatch pulled bar and it opens but nothing on outside any idea how to repair?


It might take two people to see what is not happening that should be happening. Have one person on one side of the hatch operate the key or open handle and you stay on the other side of the hatch with the inner panel off and watch the mechanism. There is probably a broken tab on the actuator or a rod has come off of the actuator.

How do I get my rear hatch door open,when you can't open it from the outside?


You can get it open in two ways: By using your key fob and remotely opening latch or by pulling inside panel on rear hatch and manually pulling lever to get latch to release. Most times when you cant get rear hatch to open normally is because cable from outside release handle to latch broke. Have cable and release mechanism inspected and replace worn or broken parts as needed.

My hatch won't release from the remote or the door switch. No solenoid sound at the hatch. How do I get it to open if it's not a bad fuse?


There are actually three relays , an there are controlled by the BCM - body control module !
When a door lock switch is activated in the lock or unlock position the BCM will receive a voltage signal on either the door lock switch lock or unlock signal circuits.
The BCM, upon receipt of a lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate lock relay control circuits to battery positive voltage. This will energize the appropriate lock or unlock relays. The relay will supply voltage to the door lock actuator lock or unlock control circuits to one side of the lock actuator. Since the opposing side of the lock actuators are connected to ground through the other lock actuator control circuit and the normally closed contacts of the lock or unlock relay, the doors and liftgate will then lock or unlock appropriately.
Three relays are used to operate the locks. DRV DR UNLCK relay, PASS DR UNLOCK and DR LCK relay. This is done to isolate the driver door lock actuator so it can be unlocked by itself using the keyless entry transmitter.
Rear Hatch/Gate Description and Operation
The liftgate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the liftgate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the liftgate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch.
Door/Lift gate Latch Assembly
  1. Install a 20-A fused jumper wire between the control terminal 3 and 12 volts. Install a jumper wire between the ground terminal 2 and ground.
  2. Verify the actuator turns on & off.

If the function does not perform as specified, replace the applicable door latch.

How do I change the rear hatch actuator in a 2007 GMC Acadia


You pull the panel out at the back and you will see the actuator, you basically unplug and take the screws that hold it on and reinstall same way. I would test the circuit to make sure the module is your problem and not a bad ground or power supply. Good luck

2005 GMC BACK HATCH WON'T OPEN


It sounds like the lock actuator has failed or has a poor connection which won't allow the latch to release. What you will need to do is remove the inside rear hatch panel to access the lock actuator. Once you get to the latch use a flat screwdriver to release the latch being careful not to damage the glass.

How dose the rear hatch and door unlatch?


you must take off the hatch handle- then remove the upholstery panel- then you'll see the actuator and rod assembly- the outside end of the rod is dangling- take it out and use it to "fish" for the lever arm hole to pull the lever back to release the latch

Rear hatch window will not release


This is a common problem on the blazer. If you can hear the rod actuator working, then the actuator rod to latch rod connector has broken. It's plastic, and a poor GM design.
To get the rear hatch open you will need to manualy release it. It can be done by working as much of the plastic tailgate trim you can get loose, from around the top center of the gate, where the latch is. remove the 2 screws that hold the handle on and remove handle. Then pry as much as you need to access the c type latch, and release it by moving it... it's spring loaded and will only move one way. Haveing someone help you lift the hatch while you unlatch it from inside the vehicle helps. After you get the hatch up and the tailgate folded down, make sure the latch is locked in the open position.
The actuator can be repaired, i've done it several times. GM will try and sell you a new one, which is rather costly compared to the $8.00 piece of plastic you need.
Good luck and i hope this helps.
