2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #2

Tahoe 8-cyl

I had noticed that on my 2005 Chevy Tahoe I was not able to open the tailgate it seemed to be locked, I tried to unlock it manually and it would not unlock from driver door when you hit to unlock everything manually. I also cannot push the button and open the glass manually either. Nor can I open it from crawling inside the truck to try to push the tailgate open. So if there was a accident there seems to be no way of getting out through the back entrance which is scary. I have tried multiple times to open it and it will not open, I cannot for any reason use the back tailgate anymore which I find a inconvenience and was one of the reasons I bought the truck in the first place.
