Hi, viewers. The liftgate latch of 2008 Acadia is electrically controlled by switches, fuses, modules, and sensors. If for some reason the liftgate doesnt seem to open under the normal operating conditions, you can still open it mechanically if needed.

* First, go inside the vehicle and lower the 2nd and 3rd row seats, and then locate the round access plug (visible and similar to a rubber grommet) from the liftgate lower interior trim panel.

*Second, use a small flatbladed tool to remove that access plug and expose the hole.

*Third, look through the hole and push on a silver lever located on the right to unlock the liftgate.

*Fourth, when unlocked, push the liftgate outward or, you may need an assistant to pull open the liftgate from the outside handle while you push the unlock lever.

Once opened, you can now reflect back as to why your liftgate wont function. I hope you get lucky in your quest. Have a nice day! : )

    I have a 2007 acadia and there is no silver lever visible through the access hole. There is a hex screw and a blue metal panel that is visible. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: rear door wont unlock

this is not the dead lock? if i am right in thinkin that this is a centrally locked car then the sensor in the door isd set too low mybe slipped as only has to be out a little to cause this, more of an antitheft system than a dead lock.

I have been dealing with the same problem and I'm a little further than you are. You need two people to do this job. Open the front door and it will give you access to the hinge pin. If I remember correctly you can pop off the snap rings and pull the pins. This will allow you to open the door just enough to get the interior panel off the door to allow you access to the actuator. Unfortunately, both my rear door actuators have been done twice in the last 5 weeks, But they are seized in the locked position again. I,m pretty sure its not just the actuators that are bad. Something else is causing this and that is why I'm here. Good luck with that one.

There is a child safety switch on the rear latch assembly that prevents opening from the inside handle. This switch may be on. Check your owners manual for more info.

Door is loked on rear driver side want open


Won't open from outside? Won't open from inside? Equipped with power door locks? IF so, and won't open inside/outside, suspect stuck power door lock actuator. Sometimes working the lock/unlock button will make the door unlock. If not, the door will require disassembly from inside to determine what the failure may be. If the door needs disassembly while in the closed position, the paneling/clips may get damaged FYI

2006 buick lucerne back doors won't open


My friend just had this problem and he reached in and pulled the inside door handle back as far as it would go, and then let it go, allowing it to 'snap' back. For some reason this fixed it. We have no idea why. By doing this on one door, both rear door locks freed up and the rear locks are now working. Before, both rear locks were stuck and you could not open the doors from the inside nor the outside. Not sure why it works, but maybe it will work for you!

HI there, the rear hatch on our 2001 chevy blazer wont open, we have tried the remote the internal release in both the console and the actual door and the release button on the outside, nothing is working....


Eddie, are both the rear door and glass not opening? I had a personal issue with my 05 Envoy where both would not open, I had to pull the peek hole right above the latch on the inside, work with a screwdriver to release the door and get it open then, spray the linkages with a good penetrating lube while trying to free the linkages parts. You'll see what I mean

Door doesnt open


Now when you say frozen locked is it when you open it from the inside you want to get out because if its that I believe there should be a small switch button on the door near the catch latch (only if you can open this door from outside handel) for a child safety lock switch flick it the other way (only 2 way this switch works lock and open) and it should open from inside (if it wont open from inside and outside then the door handel trigger is either come off the only way check it is open the door cover and look if anythng has come off) hope it give some help
