My Equinox tailgate seems to be locked and will not open


May have been packed too tight, or something shifted as door was closing and became lodged in either the locking mechanism or the side supporting latched to the left and right lower edges of the door. Try applying some pressure to the outside of the door while turning the key. If you are trying to use the Key fob to open, the stuck position will not allow lock to disengage at all. If that does not work, have someone crawl inside and push while someone outside turns the key.
Silly question but, I need to ask, what is the temp. outside? There is also the very real possibility that, the door seal itself has been frozen to the painted mating surface along the jamb of the door. You would need to park in above freezing temp (full sun will work sometimes) if this does work, get some silicone sprayed on a rag (fairly wet) and wipe down the painted mating surface where the seal meets the jamb. Good luck

Annoying, but easy to fix: Actuate the opening handle and manually rotate the latch to the open position.

My regulator went bad and i cant get the tailgate to open info center says tailgate see manual


Try lowering the window with your key. After it is completely lowered try opening it either way, down or swing out. When you get it open, lubricate all moving parts.

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?

I have had it happen too


of course the range service isn't sure, if they teach you how then there will be no more business for them. i say is that the mechanism may have tripped. go to the tailgate from the inside then try opening the latch manually

91 4 runner tailgate, window wont open


No there is no bypass. The Motor in my tailgate crapped out on me last year partly to do with a rusted out tailgate that let water in! I replaced my tailgate, but in my research found that the only way to get the window down was to remove the inside panels on the tailgate, un screw the cover plate, and then unbolt the motor to allow the window to drop enough to open the tailgate. Once the tailgate is down it will be easier to see the internals and remove the motor. Hope this helps you

1996 Isuzu Rodeo stuck tail gate


Remove the interior trim panel which will not be easy since the gate is up ---- you can then access the lock mechanism and will probably find a bent linkage rod or a broken plastic retainer clip.

Rearwindow/ door


if there are no broken wires inside the tailgate try lubing the latches with WD40 and open and close the tailgate several times. If the latches are properly closed on both sides the window will not work
