Question about 2002 Nissan Xterra

2002 Nissan Xterra

My back hatch will not open. It seems to be locked and I can't unlock it. When I use my remote to unlock it, nothing happens. It's almost like the back handle has been disconnected. Is there any other way to get this open?

Thanks,
Josh

    I have the same problem on my xterra.I usually push the door back in all the way then hit the unlock button inside the vehicle and it usually opens right up. Have you had any fuel pump problems?

I have a seperate remote start/alarm by viper and it's been acting up lately. So I had to use both remotes to unlock my car but got the back hatch open. It does still act up and seems like it's sticking. I'm going to try and give it a shot of wd-40 and see if that helps at all? If not then I don't know what to do? Maybe get rid of it then?

Ler03836@rear hatch will not open lock seems to be releasing. almost think that something may be stuck at striker plate?


Had the same problem removed the hatch interior panel, removed a little grim from the working parts, loosened the 10mm bolt securing the lock motor, manually worked all the parts and sprayed a bit of wd-40. Its been about a week and no problems since. I did this because of two problems 1 using the remote the lock wouldn't fully disengage (but could hear it working) and 2 would also encounter problems trying to manually unlock with the key.

My 2002 Xterra has all manual door locks. How can you open the rear hatch from the inside in case you have to exit that way in an emergency.


One way you can do it, is to remove the paneling off of it and locate the lock mechanism and turn it by hand. However, you'll need to keep a phillips screwdriver (possibly) in the vehicle, incase it's needed to remove speaker covers (speaker, etc) if installed and hinder the paneling to be removed otherwise.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Automatic side door will no longer open with remote or console button in car. Also, both side door's locks will not pop up using all of our 3 remotes (1 door is automatic, 1 is manual). Lastly, the back...


Did these doors quit at the same time or over a period. It seems that the actuators for the locks have gone bad. With the mentioned doors, that's a lot weight for the actuators to unlock and pop open. With the remotes and console not working , that's more reason to think the actuators are the problem.

2003 Nissan Murano hatch back door won't unlock or open. Glitchy for a long time, always opened eventually with a ritual of locking/unlocking using the remote/lock on the door, etc. Upon opening,...


I have a 2004 Murano. I opened the small hatch and with a screw driver and someone on the outside managed to open the hatch. The problem appears to be bent pieces inside. After straightening them out and using a good silicon spray, mine works again. It should be lubricated quite frequently.

Same Problem - Xterra Panic Alarm Keeps Going Off


If you are close to the truck when it happens, try removing the battery from the remote. Some times when remotes are worn, they can send out a constant signal setting off the alarm, unlocking the doors and so on. I would try that first. If it stops, then you verified the remote is the problem

Thanks Jay!

My locked door won't open


I have a 2005 Xterra and the same thing started happening to me on an intermitent basis. The dealership eventually replaced the guts of the door release equipment under warrenty but that was after 3 trips to the dealership.
Now my rear hatch won't open. My theory is that after an total repaint (hail) in the summer of 2006 the body shop made something out of wack with these door mechanisms.
