XUV: In Display "See Manual-Tailgate"

I once had See Manual-Tailgate in my display and I didnt know what to do...It did say look at the manual but I dont remember where mines is so I went to a site online and downloaded my manual to my computer...Read up on the information and found out that your suppose to start the vehicle and put your finger on the tailgate button for two seconds down and then two seconds up and the display will clear up. The manual said that my glass for the tailgate was off track and was something new to me and I had my vehicle for 3yrs now...Anyone had that problem?

Tailgate error

The other day I used the tailgate in the down pos. Like a pick up truck... and when I was finished, Everything worked fine but all of a sudden I got that same error you get. My window works fine but the tailgate will not open at all. I guess the tail gate is off the track. Or something. What do you think? If you can I need a picture of both of your fuse boxes so I can check them against mine. THANK YOU

The fuse box diagram is in the Owner's Manual. Other than that we'll have to wait for one of the XUV specialists to come along, so I'll change the thread title as a bat-signal. We actually have a member of the intrepid XUV design team as a member here.

I just got this message the other day. My rear window is stuck down. I tried to raise it by using the key in the tailgate, but when i tried to raise it it sounded like it came off the track. I assume based off other responses on here that this would be the first thing to check?

Well I just also realized that I cannot open my tailgate while i'm still getting this message. If i take off the inside panel on the tailgate, will i be able to remove it with the tailgate close?
Will taking off that panel allow me access to the window to try and get it back on the track?

You can remove the interior trim panel with the door closed. Then you can access the upper and lower LH (Driver's Side) latches and push tabs on them "up" to swing the door open. They aren't necessarily marked..you will have to look for them. The swing up in little arc cutouts. Once the door is open you have more room to take off the metal covers and see what's going on.
Good luck!

I got the panel off, and finally got the door open after several cuts to the arm.

I checked it out and it looks the like window motor (Left of center when looking at the door). The metal cover had fallen off and the metal cables were out of the grooves and somewhat crossed around the yellow wheel. Another gray cable with a small ball, blue tip and a spring was dangling. It seems like that should be attached to the yellow wheel.

The cables look pretty damaged, so it seems like I'm going to have to take it to the dealer. Any idea on how much the repair will run?

The cables and guides and actuator motor are all one part number. The dealer will probably want to replace the "regulator," which is all those parts. The motor can actually be replace separately, but only aftermarket...I THINK.
Anyway, I'm guessing dealer cost for the regulator assy to be $500 - $700, guessing 2.5 hrs, minimum???
This won't be a cheap repair at the dealer, I'm afraid.

So the motor with the yellow wheel is the actuator? or the regulator?
And if i buy it, that includes all the cables with white mounting brackets?

And you're saying autozone would have this? I thought i'd have to find this at a GM dealership

Are there any diagrams for the tailgate by chance?

I would love to fix this myself, i can't really afford the mechanics but didn't think i'd be able to find these replacement parts. Plus I really just have no idea whats going on back to be able to describe the parts I need.

I can always take another picture tomorrow if someone could provide some guidance, but I cannot reopen the tailgate to take the picture. Opening those latches manually is a special occasion only task, so I can't guarantee they'll be good pictures.

I've never had to take a car to a mechanic since i've owned cars. My envoy has been really testing me with its problems but I don't want to give in yet. Forums have taught me almost everything about cars, so I have faith in you guys for some help here. Thanks guys
