2009 Tailgate lock
 
I've searched the forum and read many posts regarding automatic tailgate locks. I've also seen where early 2009 builds (like mine) don't have manual tailgate locks but later 2009 builds had them. The dealer where I bought my truck says they do not make a manual lock for a 2009. Does anyone know for sure this is false? Better yet, does anyone know the part # I need to order. Thanks.

P/N 82211668AB is for the electronic lock and it says you need to already have the manual lock.

My 2009 came with the manual lock only.

Automatic lock meaning works with the key fob ? My 2010 is manual with a seperate key, I don't think that automatic was even available I would have liked that.

Yes they do I had the same problem. I had to buy a new tailgate handle that had the keyed lockset in it and the linkage that tied into the actuator rods for the latch. The handle with lock is part #68044867AC ,sorry I can't find my part # for the linkage. Also the lockset that comes with the new handle can be set to work with your existing key thats inside the fob. Hope this helps.

Part 1 - Handle - Part #68044904-AB (I paid $44.28
Part 2 - Control Unit - Part #68044867-AB (I paid $30.18
Part 3 - Link - Part #68049240-AA (need 2 of these) (I paid $13.80 for both

to make it power locking with your door lock button or your fob:
#82211668-AB for the remote kit (must have the above parts) (I paid $87

Well worth the money for early builds without the lock.

I have a manual lock on my tailgate. One of these days I might look into adding the auto-locks. It would be nice to link the whole system up.

Was your stock tailgate handle a locking one? I called the dodge place again and he gave me a part #82211668 which is the same as the remote kit you mentioned. I'm thoroughly confused. Time to call another Dodge place I think. Thanks for your feedback

Nope...
I bought all the above pieces.
I bought the truck with a plain handle.
You will need the other 3 part #'s for just the locking handle. The control unit and link rods are different. Don't let them tell you otherwise.

part #82211668 makes it a power lock; activated either by the lock button on the door as you exit or using the lock/unlock button on your key fob.

I got mine for a deal; list price is $109.00

this is the part that comes with non lockable tailgate[IMG]http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/9...chanism.th.jpg[/IMG]
they told me at the dealership that it was the part that i needed to lock it & they were incorrect

if you go to a different dodgeforum .com & enter that site, someone did a fantastic write up, with images on the regular locking tailgate, this is the site, i know the name of the forum will be edited **** out http://***************/forum/4th-gen...alkthru-3.html



this is the electronic locking tail gate, with instruction sheet
http://www.leeparts.com/2009_dodge_r...gate_lock.html

hope this helps you in your quest, the tailgate handle with the camera & lock is also available

LadyRam 04-08-2010 11:50 PM

The above part numbers in my post are the correct ones.

I also found all the info on the above website, GTyankee.

DavidH, feel free to PM me your email address, and I will forward the link to you.
