    Hey I was thinking of buying a 2015 Tahoe Ppv and was wondering if there is anyway to get the back doors to unlock inside without having to buy new doors. I am told there is not. Wanted to see if you all knew any way of getting them to unlock inside without buying new doors. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    All you have to do is take the door panel off and connect the metal wire that goes from the handle to the locking mechanism. Very simple and no new parts needed

    I sent a buddy over to the forum and he said all the pics are gone.

    Sorry about that, I will try find them and upload again.

    On a positive note, truck is at 60,000 miles and we still love everything about it.

    I was going though the shed on the weekend and found the PPV wheels.

    Anyone want the set?

    I will sell for $800 + shipping without tires or local pickup with tires.

    No. I never pursued the issue further. I believe a person with the correct GM flashing device can supposedly enable the switch circuit.

    I just put my DIC in my tahoe and it allows you to have more access to the computer. I believe I had seen something in there about locks and resetting factory settings.

    O by the way taking off the door panel can be a pain in the a#@. You can get door panel tools from autozone cheap so you don't need to by new panel clips

    You can also get them from Harbor Freight for cheap plus you can use their 20% off coupon.
