I am getting a message saying the Curtain Open and I can't get my ice machine to come on?

I didn't think their smaller units had a curtain, but it is referring to the plastic shield that hangs in front of the ice making grid or evaporator. This must be closed for the unit to run and there is a magnetic reed switch located on the bottom right hand corner of the curtain to prove that it is closed. Actually the magnet is in the curtain and the reed switch is snapped into the side of the grid. Make sure the curtain is in place and the magnet has not broken off. If that is in tact look to see if the reed switch is in tight. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CURTAIN... some units had a small plastic flapper at the bottom of the grid that was activated whenever ice dropped. Same system though with a magnet and reed switch. The magnets on some of these curtains and flappers were just surface mounted with some kind of adhesive and others have it captured inside of a plastic pocket made into the curtain. So if you don't see a magnet look for a spot where it used to be. If you want to prove this is the problem just get a magnet and hold it up to that spot for about 10 seconds and see if the unit cycles on. You will then have to order a new curtain or flapper or attach a magnet to the broken spot somehow.

i can not get my tailgate to unlatch and open. what do i need to do to get it to open?

i had the same problem with my 2002 1500, the problem lies with a clip or both clips being broke under the tail gate latch that you pull on to open it. you can check this by getting a flash light and look up under the latch as you have it pulled up, you will then see if you have a broken clip. chevy dealer has these. to replace the clips you have to remove the square plastic piece around your latch handle, this square piece has 4 plastic tabs 2 on the upper piece of the square in the corners and the low portion of the square has 2 in the corners also, get 2 putty knives and slide one under the bottom half of the square plastic piece 3 quarters of an inch from the corner, then slide another putty knife under the very corner, note cover this knife with tape as it will scratch your paint if not careful. you will hit a plastic tab shove in carefully to disengage the tab, do this on the other side,then you can remove bottom half of plastic trim, then proceed to do the same step on the top of the plastic trim, once this is done then take it off carefully these plastic tabs are fragile! then proceed to look in the area to see which clip is to be replaced, use needle nose pliers to install new clip, just put clip on shaft that has dropped down, this would be the one that has the broke clip. then after installing new clip try your tailgate if it opens, if it does all is well. install your square plastic piece top first, then the bottom until it snaps into place.

this is a common problem there are two motors on the front of the intake(same side the belt is on ) that open and close extra ports the plastic retainers that hold the linkage to the motor and the arm break causing the linkage to fall off, this turns the eng light on, the dealer sells the plastic retainers, they are called intake manifold runner linkage retainers, hope this is helpful.
