Question about 2000 Chrysler Town & Country
Will not open with key or electrical stitch
The latch is broken inside. If you have the tools and a little know-how, you can remove the inside panel and remove the latch system. Once removed, it will open. Then you can replace it.
here is a link for the part.
You can see the image of the backside of the handle where the locking rods connect to it.
That is the most common breaking point.
I hope this helps you.

Hi, the repairs for the liftgate involves "reflashing " the module which would have to be done at the dealership.
Reflashing the module involves hooking the dealership scanner and downloading new software into the module. Here are the bulletins.
THIS BULLETIN SUPERSEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 23-035-00 REV. A, DATED OCT. 27, 2000, WHICH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM YOUR FILES. THIS IS A COMPLETE REVISION AND NO **ASTERISKS** HAVE BEEN USED TO HIGHLIGHT CHANGES. SUBJECT: Power Mode Closes Lift Gate But Does Not Open The Lift Gate
NOTE: THIS BULLETIN SHOULD BE PERFORMED ON ALL IN STOCK VEHICLES BUILT BEFORE NOVEMBER 13, 2000 (MDH1113XX). OVERVIEW: This bulletin involves flashing the Power Lift Gate (PLG) module and resetting obstacle detection values. Adjusting the lift gate striker and/or installing lift gate overslam bumper shims may also be required.
MODELS: 2001-07 (RS) Town & Country/Caravan/Voyager 2001-07 (RG) Chrysler Voyager (International Markets)
SYMPTOM/CONDITION: The PLG functions in the power closing mode but not the opening mode. The lift gate is not flush with the tail lights. Low seal load prevents the lift gate from "popping off" and moving the lift gate latch out of the primary latching position.
DIAGNOSIS: DIAGNOSIS 1: Power operate the lift gate to open with the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Fob or button in the overhead console. If the lift gate does not move out of the primary latching position, perform Repair Procedure 1.
DIAGNOSIS 2: Inspect the lift gate for flushness to the body above and below the tail lamps. If the lift gate is underflush to the body above the tail lamp and underflush or flush below the tail lamp, go to Procedure 2A. If the lift gate is flush or overflush to the body above and below the tail lamp, go to Procedure 2B. If the lift gate is flush or underflush to the body above the tail lamps and over flush below the tail lamp AND the difference is more than 5mm, go to Procedure
You have to reflash at the dealer....
