Tahoe lift gate

On my 2007Ttahoe when I open the power lift gate about 1/2 way up the rear window pops open. You then must close it while the door is in the upper position before you cn close the tailgate. My wife isn't tall enough to do that.

Try to reset the tailgate by removing the no.7 (7.5 amp) fuse in the underdash fuse box. Open and close the tailgate manually, reinstall the fuse, and try the open tailgate button. If that doesn't work you would have take it to the dealer, where they can check for DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes). Honda Al

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.

There is a technical service bulletin regarding this problem with 2004 GMC envoy. Actually there are 3 separate issues with regards to the elecronic tailgate. The reason why the dealers are backordered is the part you want keeps failing after a time of being installed.

For the particular problem you have of the electronic latch not working, the bulletin recommends a inspection of the endgate connector C900. Look for the wires to be backed out of the connector or not properly crimped. To crimp you will need a crimping tool available at any electrical supply shop. The connectors can be had from the dealers.

The other solution referred to intermittent operation of the endgate but can apply in your situation also. For that, look for chaffing at the wire harness connectors for the endgate actuators located at the upper right and lower left latches. They have been found to be pinched up to 8 inches away from the actuators. In this situation it would be ideal to replace the connectors and install in a way so wires will not be pinched.

The other thing to look out for is dusty sensors. For this you will need to remove the tailgate trim panel and locate the 2 optical sensors on either side. You can feel them with your hand, they will be the size of a nickel. Clean all the dust under the trim. In addition to that you should open the switch and use contact cleaner to clean out any dust or debris inside there. There is no mechanical way to open the door once the electronic side has malfunctioned without damaging the door. I hope this helps.

I have 2005 chevy tahoe my doors all licks but my liftgate door with window stays open use to lock w all my doors? I havent check anytjing yet? I cant lock it.


Here is how it works !
Liftgate Locking Operation
The lift gate will lock any time the vehicle is shifted out of park on vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and at vehicle speeds exceeding 5 kph with manual transmission. This happens in conjunction with auto door locks if enabled or independently of auto door locks if the feature is disabled. This ensures that the lift gate is locked anytime the vehicle is shifted out of park or when the vehicle is in motion.
The lift gate lock relay supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit and the ECC fuse. The normally closed contact is connected to ground and the control side is connected to the body control module (BCM). A lock function will occur when a door lock switch activation, keyless entry lock transmission, auto door lock function or a lift gate lock function has been received by the BCM. The BCM will then ground the control side of the lift gate lock relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit. Since the other side of the lift gate lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the door unlock relay to ground, the lift gate will lock. When an unlock function occurs the BCM will ground the control side of the unlock relay and the rear doors and lift gate will unlock.
The BCM also runs diagnostics on the lift gate lock relay control circuit and will set DTC B3825 as current and also send a Class 2 message to the DIC. The DIC will display REPLACE LIFTGATE FUSE to inform the driver that a fault has been detected in the lift gate lock circuit and that the lift gate is not locked. Faults that will set the DTC and cause the DIC to display the message could be any of the following:
?€¢
An open ECC fuse


?€¢
An open or short to ground in the lift gate lock relay battery positive voltage circuit


?€¢
A faulty lift gate lock relay


?€¢
An open or short to ground in the lift gate lock relay control circuit


?€¢
A short to ground in the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit


?€¢
A faulty BCM

Gate light on dash will not go off also dome light stays on rear lift door is not jarred


Replace the gate latch. Open the gate, remove the top panel first, it pops off. Remove the bottom, 2 to 4 screws to remove, then it pops off. This gives you access to remove the latch.

How do I fix the liftgate sensor on a 2005 nissan quest


I purchased a 2005 Quest that had same damage on the rear lift gate. If I crossed my eyes and pressed down on the magic spot 3% of the time I could get the door to close in a way the sensor would recognize so I didn't have the door open light turn on.

Too fix this problem I removed the interior panel from the lift gate which allows access to the the lock and some of the wires. almost directly behind the licence plate you have access to the inside the lift gate you should see 2 wires that appear to be going down the latch. I'm assuming one of these controls the power locks and the other is for the feedback sensor that tells the car the door is open.

on the drivers side of the opening that exposes the wires going down to the lock you will see there is a white connection for 1 of the 2 wires that is mounted to the inside of the lift-gate. All I did was squeeze and separate this connection and the car no longer recognizes the door is open.

I don't have an alarm so I don't know if this would mess up the alarm other than if someone broke in through the lift gate it wouldn't trigger the sensor.

I hope this helps

Toyota 4runner Lift Gate Won't Close/Open


Insert the key and turn the lock cylinder while lifting up on the lift gate. You have to get the gate open. Once open, The strike plate (where the locking mechanism hits) is bolted to the jamb. Loosen the bolts and slightly move it toward the rear of the vehicle. NOT TOO MUCH!
Tighten the bolts, and try it. Hope this helps.

Rear door lactch will not open but other doors do


I have the same issue on my 2002 Escape. I hear the cylinder motors engaging on the doors but not the liftgate so all I can assume is the wiring loom on the passenger side upper corner of the liftgate needs attention. That is where the wiring is for the door motor that releases the window and gate. I will post again after I solve this. 6/28/2009

When driving the vehicle the interior lights flash on and off the power locks flutter and the door ajar chimes.


Check the rear lift gate switch. Or it could be that one of the doors or the rear lift gate is out of adjustment and not closing tightly. Try closing all doors and lift gate then from the outside push in on the doors and see if they go in. If it is the doors , when you push on the one that is causing the problem the door ajar chime will stop .

Rear power door not working


check the gate suports.. its very common for them to rust at the ends and cause them to bind that will not allow the gate to lift on its own. a click or pop may be heard when the gate is opened or closed.. also if the supports are working right the gate actually moves away from the body when the latch is released. if its stays against the body then try the supports for the gate
