Your liftgate has obstruction sensors, if obstruction is detected in the power mode, the liftgate will reverse. Has a sensor on each side of liftgate. I don't know if replacing sensor/s will fix it, but, that would be my first thought. I hate to see you replace anything and it not fix it.
Your owners manual should give you info on lift gate operation. If you want my diagram for lift gate, holler and I'll post it.

My drivers door will not close in cold weather


spray penetrating oil into door latch mechanism, all angles and holes, up and down and keep working door open and close. It is dry and gummed up. a good maintenance procedure for all doors, hinges, and especially tailgate mechanisms. once you have a poorly latched tailgate open going down the road, and loose your cargo, you will learn to notice when things are not latching properly!

07 Tahoe - L/S Parking light fuse keeps blowing when tailgate is opened


HI,
You have a 'short to ground' wiring issue. Either the switch that is activated by opening the gate or the wiring in the gate itself is damaged/broken.
I'd remove the switch 1st and see if the fuse doesn't blow. IF it does by a new one on Ebay or @ the dealer.

otherwise, get a multi-meter and a wiring diagram for your Tahoe and trace the wiring from the switch.

GL,
Td

TAILGATE OPEN WARNING LIGHT IS ON WHEN TAILGATE IS CLOSED


Sound like your tail gate switch has failed or maybe a fuse

I would take these actions :

1. Check fuses
2. Replace Tailgate switch
3. Take to Auto electrician as it could be a short in your wiring harness.

Hope this helps

Rear access open on 2005 Chevy Tahoe


I don't know if this will work, but at least it is worth a try. Spray some WD40 liberally over and into both tailgate latches. Try to get up inside using the straw extension. Open and close multiple times to work it in. I suspect there is an internal latch switch, which controls the display, that might be dirty, corroded, or just not working. Of course other causes are possible. I hope it works.
