My wife came to me with a strange problem. The rear doors on her 1999 DII won't open. Tried a few easy checks, to no avail. Is there anything that usually goes wrong and puts the doors in hard lock?

From the inside or outside or both? Or do you mean the locks won't go up?

Super locking the doors may cause havoc, when an actuator fails at the same time.. But suddenly both doors stopped?

Both rear doors will not open from either the inside, or of course the outside. Can't open with inside door handles, and can't pull up the lock buttons. Scanner shows no faults. Super lock is an understatement...

Rear tailgate opens? While I’m no expert, but I believe there’s a BCU or Window ECU that might be causing this..

It's possible that both rear door locks failed, they are that shitty. It's also possible that what they call a bulkhead connector has corrosion in it. The connector has all the door lock circuits in it and its possible the doors are not getting the unlock signal. I say that because if the door lock is in superlock it should come out of superlock with an unlock signal. It was common for them to fail in superlock. If that happened we would pull the belt molding off to gain access, then break the superlock motor off the latch with a long screw driver and a hammer. Once the motor is broken off the latch you can dig around in there with the screw driver and move the mechanism.

It's no fun.

Find the highest rated independent LR shop nearby and talk to them. They have probably seen this before.

In PA that might be Trevor or Randy.
