Tailgate won't open/won't unlock either


You did not put the type of vehicle so i can only give you a general answer. Since you write "tailgate" I assume this is a truck.

The center latch pull can often break internally causing your problem. It is usu sally easy to fix. On the bed side of the tailgate there should be an access panel that is removed with a few screws. Once the panel is open the lock-latch mechanism is exposed. There are a few more internal screw or bolts that will remove the latch. At this point you will see 2 small rods that go to each side of the gate latch. Pull on the rods with a pliers and the side latches will release opening the gate.

The center latch mechanism is most likley broken. They are usually made of plastic. You can buy a replacement online thru most parts stores or Amazon.

I hope this answer helps you out. If you need specific help, post year, make and model of vehicle..

A Bronco tailgate comes off the same as a regular pickup truck. Open the tailgate and remove the cables from both sides. Lift up the passenger side of the tailgate and then slide the driver side towards the passenger side.

1993 4.3L blazer. No tailgate latch mechanism and unable to open. Is there a way to open tailgate?


If you are saying the latch mechanism has been removed then use a coat hanger with a small "U" bent on one end. Insert the hanger into the tailgate (where the latch was) to one side and fish for the rod which normally connects to the latch mechanism. After you find one side retain it with a string or the like and find the rod on the other side. Once you have both pull them both toward the center of the tailgate and the tailgate will open.

06 Silverado tailgate stuck closed


You should be able to get in between the fender and tailgate with a long screwdriver or piece of flat metal and push the catch back into the tailgate. Then pull the handle to release the other side and the gate should open. Hope this helps.

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...
