rear lift gate will not unlock, key fob does not work and power lock from inside does not work
The rear locking mechanism in my 2000 gmc yukon appears to be stuck and I cannot close the door. The lock catch seems to have moved out of place and when I push the door in it is still ajar. Is there any way to solve the problem? I tried using the lock/unlock lever on the door as well as the key fob but the lock clip on the inside of the door appears to have shifted down thereby preventing the door from locking. The door handle is not broken just the clip inside the door that keeps the door lock once closed.
rear hatch door does not close
The tailgate glass hatch release button jams up and will often remain in "pushed In" position not allowing the glass hatch to lock. Avoid using the glass hatch and we only use the entire rear hatch when loading or unloading the vehicle. Difficult to latch and involves slamming the glass multiple times before getting lucky and having it latch closed. Definitely something not right.
The bottom rear hatch of my 2000 Yukon Denali will not open.
I have the same problem with right passenger door. It does work consistently and it is not reliable locking by remote. I am just dealing with it!
