I don’t know why but for some reason I can’t get the tailgate to lock. I get the gas cover to lock but not my tailgate. I assume it’s a sequence?? Need some help

Lock the doors (by any of the several methods that will lock the doors). That’ll lock the tailgate as well.

Also remember that as long as you still have your keys in your pocket, the tailgate will automatically unlock and go down. You won't even hear it unlock. So if you want to test it out, lock the vehicle, make sure your keys are not anywhere near the vehicle and then confirm that the tailgate is locked.

Are you saying that just walking near the SC will make the tailgate go down...? I thought there was a seperate button on the key fob that you had to press for a few seconds. Maybe your button is stuck in the pressed position.

You absolutely have to hold the tailgate button on the keyfob down for a couple of seconds to open the tailgate.

No, he's saying that if you have the key in your pocket, the tailgate will automatically unlock itself when you push the button to drop it. It's like the rear hatch on my Equinox - as long as I have the key on me, I can pop it open, even with all four doors locked.
