Locking mechanism on 95 Jeep Cherokee Sport stuck in ''up'' positio

How do I "pop" the locking mechanism on the inside of the door so thedoor will latch close? The mechanism was accidentially pushed up in there so now thedoor will not hook on to the metal loop bar to remain shut. Ive tried pushing the outside button and pulling the inside while trying to get it unstuck but no luck. Thanks

    Had the same problem tonight with my 98 Cherokee. Tried the suggested solution prying the latch part upwards with a screwdriver while pressing the door handle button at the same time and was able to close the door finally. Looks like there is some sort of plastic sheath around the metal part of the latch that is separating and causing the latch to jam.

Push outside handle, simulating opening the door. At the same time, use a screw driver and pry open the jaws.

I have a jeep Cherokee 2001 my door driver side won't lock need help or advise but inside says its lock but I open it from outside the door still opens.


sounds like the actuator inside the door, has come loose from the locking mechanism. You may need to remove the inner panel of the door and observe the motions as you attempt to lock the door.

Try to insert very large screwdriver into locking mechanism and try pushing it OUT. Make sure door locks are off. It should pop open.

Pop your hubcaps off (or if you have rims the small one in the center) and if you have a weird lugnut you have a locking mechanism.

1999 cherokee sport rear doors wont open


don't know if this is going to be any help at all. But we purchased our 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee a year ago and I just now learned that the rear window even opens. Did you find the switch that makes it pop open? If not it is just under the ridge under the window but above the handle to open the hatch. You just put your hand on it and push upwards. Hope this helps!!
ALSO, THE JEEP HOLD PRESSURE WHEN OPENING IT..NEXT TIME GIVE IT A LTIILE PUSH ON THE TAILGATE LID WHILE PULLING THE HANDLE..IT WORKS GREAT ON THIS ONE. EVEN AFTER THE FIRST OWNER BROKE OFF THE DANG KEY..
HOPE IT HELPS *I went by body shop for this same type issue with a 98 grand cherokee * the body shop guy removed the plastic sheild and adjusted a cable that interacts with the locking mechanism, took 5 seconds, cost me $20 for his time, works good as new.

Rear Hatch will not open on my 95 Jeep Cherokee sport


You need to go to a locksmith and purchase a new lock cylinder. Remove the retainer clip from the old cylinder from the inside of the hatch.

Jeep grand cherokee central locking system


If all the doors do not lock or unlock when using the passenger side switch, then the switch itself is probably bad.   If the passenger side switch locks or unlocks all the other doors except for its own, then the power lock solenoid inside the door is bad or jammed.  If it is jammed, try locking and unlocking the door manually while activating the switch to work its way free.
