2006 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Question: Rear lift gate not locking

 

Question

Could it be simple or should I go with the "replace back lift gate assembly? for my entire paycheck?

-I'm feeling that I'm being taken to the cleaners prematurely.

How can I know if its just the actuator or something simple?

    Turns out that the glass window is also not locking along with the rear hatch. I'm going to have to purchase a repair book for the Suburban so I can plan to fix some of these things myself.
