{: ) Liftgate Access Plug is located at the bottom center area of the liftgate trim panel.
From inside the vehicle lower the second and third, if applicable, row seats.
Use a small flat-bladed tool to remove the access plug from the liftgate lower interior trim panel. It is like a round and smooth plastic grommet.
Push on a silver lever located on the right just through the access hole to unlock the liftgate.
Open the liftgate from the outside of the vehicle using the exterior handle.

Power lift gate will not operate


You have to pull the inside door panel off an check it out , only way !
  • The lift gate latch release is inoperative/does not operate correctly
  • Circuitry
  • Liftgate release switch (integral to the liftgate release handle)
  • Liftgate release motor (integral to the liftgate latch)
  • Power liftgate module
  • SJB
  • Go To Pinpoint Test F .
Normal Operation The smart junction box (SJB) does not release the liftgate unless the doors have been unlocked electronically or the request is initiated from a remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitter.
The SJB sends a voltage signal to the liftgate release switch (part of the liftgate release handle) through circuit CPL45 (BN). When the switch is activated (the handle is pulled), the signal is routed to ground through circuit GD150 (BK/WH). When the SJB detects a request from the liftgate release switch, the SJB provides voltage through circuit CPL10 (BN/BU) to the liftgate latch release motor (integral to the liftgate latch) (vehicles with a manual liftgate) or the power liftgate module (vehicles equipped with a power liftgate). For vehicles with a manual liftgate, ground for the liftgate latch is provided through circuit GD150 (BK/WH).
DTC B2666 - is an on-demand DTC that sets when the SJB detects a short to ground from the liftgate release switch input circuit.
DTC B273A - is an on-demand DTC that sets when the SJB detects a short to ground from the liftgate latch release output circuit.
DTC B273B - is an on-demand DTC that sets when the SJB detects an open or short to voltage from the liftgate latch release output circuit.
    Possible Causes
  • Circuit CPL45 (BN) open or short to ground
  • Circuit CPL10 (GN/WH) open, short to ground or voltage
  • Circuit GD150 (BK/WH) open
  • Liftgate release switch (integral to the liftgate release handle)
  • Liftgate release motor (integral to the liftgate latch)
  • Power liftgate module
  • SJB
Your best bet is to take it to the dealer !

2008 Cadillac srx power tailgate opens fine, but won't close with the remote. I can't hear the motor. The auto close button doesn't work either. Is there a fuse or relay? If so where is it?


An electronic control module controls it .
The liftgate module (LGM) controls operation of the liftgate latch motor and the liftgate actuator assembly. Do you have a Liftgate Ajar Indicator ON ? Or a message in the message center driver information center (DIC) illuminates the LIFT GATE AJAR indicator ? The liftgate control module could have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code in memory !

When open, the liftgate can be closed by either a keyless entry transmitter or the liftgate close switch. When a GMLAN serial data message or switch input is seen, the liftgate module begins the close sequence. The liftgate motor is reversed, lowering the liftgate until it latches into the liftgate latch. Once latched, the latch will cinch the liftgate to a fully closed position.
Power liftgate function will only be allowed if certain operating criteria are met. Any of the following may cause the power liftgate not to function:
?€¢ Vehicle is not in park. ?€¢ Engine cranking is present. ?€¢ Temperature limits have been exceeded. ?€¢ Liftgate motor overcurrent is detected. ?€¢ Excessive hall effect counts are seen. ?€¢ System voltage is out of range. ?€¢ A DTC is set that disables power liftgate functionality. The liftgate also receives inputs from 2 object detection sensors. If either of these sensors indicate an object is in the path of the liftgate, liftgate functions will be suspended until the object is removed.

GMC Acadia Power Lift Gate Not Working


Will require a scan tool to check for codes, make sure latch is working well, make sure release switch is getting signal. Most common concern is the latch itself though

2008 suburban Stuck Lift Gate Lock


I have a 2008 Suburban with the power liftgate disabled. I have had the power latch stop working, and the BCM report that the rear access open when it is closed (both gate and glass). Somehow the liftgate module thinks the gate is open, so I cannot open the gate at all, and the latch and rear wiper will not work. To reset the control module I pulled the liftgate fuse (#20) in the instrument panel fuse box, turned the car on, off, reinstalled fuse, turned car on, unlocked doors using drivers side switch, and the power latch will function again - at least for a while.

How do you open the rear door wont work with the outside button


Hi, viewers. The liftgate latch of 2008 Acadia is electrically controlled by switches, fuses, modules, and sensors. If for some reason the liftgate doesnt seem to open under the normal operating conditions, you can still open it mechanically if needed.

* First, go inside the vehicle and lower the 2nd and 3rd row seats, and then locate the round access plug (visible and similar to a rubber grommet) from the liftgate lower interior trim panel.

*Second, use a small flatbladed tool to remove that access plug and expose the hole.

*Third, look through the hole and push on a silver lever located on the right to unlock the liftgate.

*Fourth, when unlocked, push the liftgate outward or, you may need an assistant to pull open the liftgate from the outside handle while you push the unlock lever.

Once opened, you can now reflect back as to why your liftgate wont function. I hope you get lucky in your quest. Have a nice day! : )
