Tailgate lock assist will not work - 525 BMW Cars & Trucks

  • Anonymous Mar 13, 2009

    I have the same problem on my 1995 525tds.

    The problem occured after I had a rear exhaust box fitted,it was operating perfect up untill then.

    i have checked the fuses 32/33/37 under the rear seat,found ok.

    I dont seem to have a feed on the red/black wire to the accuator.

    Put 12volts direct on to the accuator to see if it would work,no joy.

    To make things worst the barrel on the tail gatelock had sized solid.

    Freed barrel and checked movement, there is not enough movement (ie 45 degress each way ) on the linkage to realease the lock.

    As a last resort I have pinned the operating lever to the barrel housing so I can at last open the tail gate manually with the key.

If this is an original equipment replacement part should work just like its predeceser before the accident. Just check that everything is wel connected and in place by removing the panels and take a look inside.

Power lock on the tailgate not working all other power locks work


Sounds like the lock actuator in the tailgate has gone bad. I have a 1999 that had the same problem. Its about a 120 part from the chrysler dealership and involves taking the interior trim off the tailgate to repair.

2002 nissian frontier tailgate is stuck


First thing: Try using the key to move to the locked and then to the unlocked position. If this works, open the tailgate... This also pretty much tells you what the root cause problem is, which is a pressed-in plastic post working its way out (see below).

If no bedliner, just remove metal plate inside tailgate and actuate by hand inside to open. If bedliner, first use a small screwdriver to carefully (don't scratch paint) push in latches at either side of tailgate to open/lower tailgate (if locking/unlocking as above did not work to lower gate and gain access). Next, use two blade screwdrivers to pry out the "buttons" that hold the ends of the tailgate liner where they wrap around the sides, then remove bedliner piece and metal plate, etc.

Once you have access to inside of tailgate, you will see how the mechanism works by pulling up and down on the handle while observing. You will probably find that the slide mechism that locks and unlocks the mechanism has been allowed to move such that it cannot unlock/allow movement of the latching mechanism. This is usually the result of the pressed in plastic anchor being worn/loose. I had some success with cleaning thoroughly with alcohol or brake cleaner, allowing to dry and then using super glue to hold it firmly in all the way. Still have to hold handle up when closing gate and keep key on hand to unlock every time opening, but it was a free repair...

Lock on Tailgate will not release


Try checking that the handle in the tailgate returns to the 'open' postion. Once in a while, usually during/after the winter, the tailgate handle gets stuck in the 'pressed in' postion. I have to use WD-40 or some other lubricant to get the handle working again, which allows me to unlock and open the tailgate.
