Default 2004 GMC Envoy XUV

I am having issues with my SUV, I cant seem to open the back tailgate, it wont swing open, or drop open, I am just wondering if the touchpad could be faulty, or a fuse (if there is one, where?) or do I need to break down and take it in to dealership.

sounds like more of a mechanical issue, probably have to take the covers off and see what the mechanism is doing

Remove the touch pad and try touching the two wires to each other.

Any vehicle that has a touch pad to open the liftgate also has some sort of mechanical way to open it as well (in case the battery is dead). For your vehicle the process is as follows:

Emergency Release for Opening
Liftgate
1. Remove the trim plug to expose the access hole in
the trim panel. The access hole is located on the
inside of the liftgate.
2. Use a tool to reach through the access hole in the
trim panel.
3. Pry the left release lever up to the unlock position.
Pry the right release lever up to unlatch the liftgate.

4. Reattach the trim plug.
