Question about The Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I kinda overloaded the trunk area and had to slam the lift gate in order to get it closed properly. when i tried pressing the button in the back i could hear the mechanism buzzing but it won't open.

I don't think anything's broken, i just think it was closed improperly and now it's jammed/stuck

SOURCE: chevy blazer 95 with stuck trunk

I was able to get two wedges between the glass and the plastic trim. From that I used a scope to see inside and find the mechanism to release the window. Once I got the glass open, I removed the handle, and two screws from each side of the trim and removed the trim.

Once the trim was removed I had a small opening and could see the problem. The end of the latch has a small blue plastic (why plastic??) catch that broke.

Rather than taking the door apart and finding a replacement, I heated a screw driver and made a slot in the plastic. Next I used a heavy duty zip tie and connected the two pieces (plastic catch and metal part that opens the latch). I left some slack in the connection and all works great.

Not sure how long this will last, but for now I have the back opening. I will look at replacing the plastic piece, but not sure if a total new mechanism is needed.

Thanks
Stan

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to make sure that your fuse is not blown. Check your fuse box diagram for the location. If the fuse is fine, you may have a bad switch. There could be a loose wire or a bad connection to the switch.

2004 grand caravan some dome lights stay on rest shut off normally


Is there perhaps a problem with the dome light switch on the lift gate? Close all the doors, open only the lift gate and find the switch on the lift gate frame (usually a rubber covered "bump") and press it in. You might have a loose wire shorting against the bodywork or the door is not depressing the switch properly.

Rear door does not close


Look at the door's locking mechanism. Is the Latch Gate in the down position? Is the Door Mechanism properly tightened to the door? These are Torx/Hex head bolts. Tighten these if needed.
If the Latch Gate is down:
1. Unlock the door.
2. Lift up/out on the Door Handle as if you were opening the door.
3. Use a screwdriver to lift the Latch Gate so it lifts the Gate up and out of the way.
Alot of these Gates have plastic coverings that sometimes split and stick or cause the door mechanism to jam. Inspect the Door Mechanism for anything that could be causing it to jam. Using a pair of needle nose pliers remove any of this split plastic (if so equipped) pulling as much of it off the Latch Gate.
Use WD40 with the red spraying hose on and stick it as many openings you can and lubricate as much of the Door Mechanism as you can.
Check the operations (plural) of the Door Mechanism, Opening and Closing the Gate using the screw driver to push in the Striker Gate causing the Latch Gate to rotate back down into position. Repeat... checking for the Latch Gate to Release Up (on it's own) when you "open" the door. If it doesn't, then there is either jammed or a return spring is broken.
Have you dented or distorted the Door and / or Door Mechanism in the process of trying to slam the door close? You will have to either bend the the door area back to as close to possible the original shape. Use the other door on the other sides as a guide on this. You may have to replace the Door Mechanism itself, as when they are malfunctioning and are slammed (over and over) it could break the Mechanism itself. If the Mechanism is broke, you will have to remove and replace the entire mechanism.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information of questions. Feel free to conatct me at FixYa.com!

Convertable roof and trunk won't open


The Roof Mechanism works with two motors similiar to the ones that wund the windows. Now the two mechanism are located in the left side of the trunk. 

The trunk wont open Because of the roof lid that is not closed properly. How you can test this is to press down on the right sid of the roof lid and then try to opne the trunk.

Now the reason that this is happening is that the roof lid is not closing properly nad pressing on a small orange buttin located just below the right hand side roof lid catch. How you are going to remedy this problem is to adjust the cable tension to close more securely.

Now the two motors in the trunk that works the convertable roof can be engaged and disengaged on motor works the roof lid and the other one the roof.

You need to get these motors in sync so that they open and close the roof in the correct order.

That is if the electric are still working.
