Removed my tailgate earlier this week to have it painted, reinstalled it yesterday and made sure to connect the harness properly. The backup camera works fine, but whenever I try to open the tailgate, either by pressing the button on the tailgate or using my key fob, the taillights flash 3 times and the tailgate doesn't open. From within the cab, I hear a faint clicking, but no error code or anything shows on any display.
I have the "power lock and release" standard tailgate, not power lift or multipro.
Any help fixing this would be much appreciated!
I have a 2015 Sierra "Work truck" with manual tailgate key lock (no remote electronic opening or camera; plain latch). The lock has worked great up until now. (Normally, turning the key 1/4 turn to the left unlocks the tailgate by engaging the latch handle.)
Now, I can turn the key just short of the unlock position (turns freely, like usual, not gritty or rusty or sticky), but then the lock binds. Feels like something internally fell into the mechanism is preventing the lock cylinder from turning the last little bit. Therefore, my latch handle will not engage to open the tailgate.
Is this a known/common problem? Fixes?
Hi, I'm new here and I wanted to ask if anyone knows anything about fixing the tailgate latch rods on a 2005 GMC Sierra. When I bought the truck, the tailgate wouldn't open but I thought all it needed was a replacement latch because the connecting pins were gone. I replaced the tailgate latch itself because i needed to anyway, but the rod on the right is stuck in place. Does anyone know what might be the problem? The left rod moves freely, but the right one is stuck. Thanks for any help.
I bought the 17 GM shock sensor to add to the factory alarm on my 2017 Sierra SLT. The dealer said it will not work on my truck because I do not have AUO code and that code was eliminated by GM in 2016. Is there anything out there to add a shock sensor to the factory alarm?
Hey everyone. I picked up my 2021 Trail Boss two weeks ago. It's equipped with the power open & close tailgate (not just the power release). This weekend I noticed the tailgate was loose when it was closed, so I cycled it open and closed, and it fully latched like it should. I tried it again, and it latched, but it failed to pull in to the second latched (tight) position. You can hear and see it try, but it fails. It has continued to fail since, even if I close the tailgate manually.
With the tailgate open, I can use my finger to press the latch into the first and second latched positions, it just won't completely do it when actually closing the tailgate.
Has anyone else experienced this? I'm calling the dealer later, but figured I'd ask here as well.
