The door locks ( back doors/ tailgate) on my jeep won't unlock

it sounds as if there is a wire or the door lock actuator is bad on the back door as well as the tailgate give these websites a try and if all fails stop by your local Jeep dealership in the parts department and they be able to print you off the pictures and diagrams you will need wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Door locks keep going off and on.

Its the kids in the back seat, haha sorry. It sounds like a bad switch.
You can either see if this can be removed with out removing panel
or you would have to remove the door panel and take each switch
and unpower it and see which one stops this from happening.
Maybe there is a mechanic around that someone has said there honest and you can have them check it, which is a lot cheaper
than the dealer. Hoped this helps a little, but maybe someone that has worked on your model will come along and be a bit more helpful.

1998 jeep cherokee lock problem

check and lube the latch mechanism...If linkage is bent, why not straighten it ? can't be bent too much unless someone tried to get in there and really pulled on it! If necessary you can get parts at any junkyard or dealer.
