GMC MultiPro Tailgate Information

Recommended Posts

Some useful information from GM TechLink regarding the GMC MultiPro Tailgate.

Remember, Do not lower the inner gate with the primary gate open while a receiver hitch is present or :smash:

 

Trucks Equipped with a Hitch Ball

Do not lower the inner gate with the primary gate open (easy access or step positions) if a hitch ball or trailer is attached. This may damage the tailgate due to the amount of clearance between the hitch receiver and the lowered inner gate. (Fig. 26)

Tailgate Operation

When the BCM receives a release command to release the primary tailgate or inner (auxiliary) gate, it applies a brief pulse of voltage to the appropriate left and right pickup box latch relay control circuits, which energizes the coil side of the relays. The switch side of the appropriate left and right latch relay then momentarily closes, supplying a brief pulse of battery positive voltage to the left and right pickup box primary tailgate or auxiliary endgate latches. (Fig. 27) The latches activate to release the gate.

The inner auxiliary pickup box endgate must be in the latched position before commanding the primary tailgate to release. The BCM disables the primary tailgate release function if the inner auxiliary pickup box endgate is open or ajar.

One of the many reasons why jumping on the first year new model is a no no. They’ll redesign and reconfigure with a couple more years along with all the bugs (hopefully) fixed. Makes you wonder what else was rushed onto production hmmmmm

Well for now, there are many 2019's sitting on the staging lots in Fort Wayne Indiana due to warped or ripples windshield glass and problems with paint.

So wonder no more :lol:

They will all have problems.

Bottom line is that most of the Automotive Companies RUSH vehicles to production instead of taking a few extra months or even up to a year to really work them

over and smooth out the rough patches. Perhaps they do this to meet the "demand" we consumers impose?

Auto Companies need to stop and smell the roses.

After-all, they would benefit more because fewer if any recalls would be made thus saving the companies thousands if not

millions of dollars in dealership reimbursements and civil lawsuits due to faulty parts, poor engineering or assembly.

I agreed, originally thought it was a gimmick... however, after using it I really like it.  Having a bad knee (recent ACL) this gate is amazing for getting in and out of the bed - extremely easy!

I love mine. Spent yesterday moving items to storage and used the stair function about 30 times. Those over 50 will wonder how you lived without it. I don't see any problem with the trailer hitch, I'm standing right there when I release the tailgate and should recognize there is a hitch at my shin.

I knew most would love it. Can’t wait to get mine.  Usually when people complain about a part , is when they wish they had it.

Agreed. If wanting to lower the whole thing to that point, one should already know there is a hitch there and not to open it to begin with. #heresyoursign

I agree with you, wish it was an option. The real question is. does it fit right up to the Silverado's.  I though I read somewhere that the beds are slightly different.

      Hello,
      I purchased my truck a few months ago and most of the time i need to press the button 2-5 times to drop my tailgate without any help. With a little (and i mean 5 lbs) of pulling while pressing the button it works most of the time, even then i might have to press it twice. The truck is a new body 2019 Silverado LT 4x4. It started doing this day one, i thought it might just need to work in/break in and it did not.
      Is anyone else having this issue?
      If so do you know how to fix it?
       I have tried with the vehicle on level ground and even then it does not work all the time also i tried it on grounds where the front is up a few inches and i would still have to press at least twice. Every 50 times or so it will go down with one press. 
       
      Any help will be appreciated.

      They're in great shape, $100 shipped with the 48 States.
       
      No power fold or puddle lights. Power up down side to side only.

      And just like that, the all-new 2019 Sierra is last year's model!  Yes, GMC is starting to prepare the 2020 model year Sierras for sale, despite it not even being Memorial Day in America yet. GMC calls its updates to the Sierra for 2020 "A robust portfolio of technologies." Does that make you want to rush out and get the 2019 lacking the robust portfolio?  
       
      “The Sierra is delivering the tech customers want in the light-duty truck market, and the 2020 model demonstrates that Professional Grade means never slowing down,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “In just its first year on the market, the 2019 Sierra introduced the available, industry-first CarbonPro Bed and MultiPro tailgate. The truck’s 2020 updates show how the Sierra continues to raise the bar year in and year out.”
       

       
      Here is a rundown of what changes Sierra shoppers can expect for the new 2020 model year truck:
      -Available Enhanced ProGrade Trailering features a segment-first transparent trailer view, originally introduced on the soon-to-launch 2020 Sierra HD, with a segment-leading 15 total available camera views.
      -Available Camera-equipped adaptive cruise control system. The system features a single high-mounted camera behind the rearview mirror and can bring the Sierra to a complete stop.
      -Elevation model now offered in Crew Cab configuration.
      -First full model-year availability of the 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel and the CarbonPro Editions with the carbon fiber bed (both late 2019 model year additions).
      -Available 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel added to CarbonPro Edition propulsion options, previously offered only with 6.2L V-8.
      -10-speed automatic transmission availability expands to 5.3L V-8 models (SLT, AT4 and Denali models with 4WD).
      -New trailer tow mirrors are available as a free-flow option.
      -8-inch-diagonal infotainment system now capable of supporting SiriusXM with 360L (if equipped).
      -2020, Sierra 1500 will be available with the upgraded 15-camera ProGrade Trailering System introduced earlier this year on the 2020 Sierra HD.
      - The in-vehicle Trailering App has updated features and enhanced mobile integration for 2020
