Electronic tail gate lower

Electronic tail gate lower

Postby kdodd [OP] » Nov 03 2019, 4:38pm

I just bought a 2019 silverado LT, it has push button tailgate lowering feature. I forgot to ask dealer how you lower the tailgate if something should happen, dead battery, bad switch. Just curious if any of you chevy gurus know the answer.

It says consult dealer. Was just wondering if anybody here would know.

My first thought would be that the battery would have to be completely dead,no voltage,zip, nada!
Then you have other issues other than opening the tailgate. They probably refer to the dealer because your going to be going there if its that dead.
I have yet to see the new truck tail gate so i am just speculating. Sorry I don't have the answer. Make sure you always carry jumper cables?
