Tailgate Power Lock Kit Install
(Shown here on the 2002 Chevy Avalanche)
(it also works with later models)
By Dyno Products bought at www.truckgadets.com
Instructions, pictures, and video from Dyno
Here is the first hour of work on my Avalanche
The complete kit (long bar does not belong in kit that I can tell)
First step. Take the two star bolts off at the far ends
That takes off the cover, with a little pulling to take the two lower clips off
Here it is off
Lock mechanism that will not be used anymore
Lock hook taken off
Template included in the kits instructions.
The start of cutting into my avalanche, took my time with this. Use a good dremel.
Done. This cut does not have to be perfect. Just don't cut more then needed.
Two 1/8 inch holes drilled
Closer look at them. They will be for the self tapper screws into the actuator bracket
The actuator hook
Fishing for a wire
Tailgate up on top
Hole drilled on bottom of tailgate, its all fiberglass
Cover back on. Time for the running of the wires
Decided I wanted the tailgate to only unlock when I pressed the button twice.
Attached to tan and gray wires. Done. Works perfect!!!!!
Watch the dyno video. It is very good if you want to get a better look at what you have to do.
