Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Ok do the other auto locks work when you lock and unlock them?

No because I can't open the gate at all
Cadillac Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

yeah you will have to climb in back and remove it that way or pop it out enough to access the latch

so in the doc it will give you the removal procedure for the panel and a emergency solution, I would try to remove the panel so you dont have to drill into anything, also when you find the latch there will be a lever you can pull on to open the liftgate
