My Toyota 4 runner 2004 hatchback will not open and motor on lock not turning over when I squees the handle. We replaced the hatchback motor and its in safe mode. How do we get it out of safe mode?


Safe mode is linked to the park brake switch and in many cars and light Utility vehicles the transmission range selector, you will need a scanner to see what exactly is the cause of hatch switch lockout.

Bulbs are bad or the wiring is broken. Remove the top bezel, it pops off, to access the bulbs/wiring. Wires usually break at the boot between the hatch and body.

the sequoia hatchback handle breaking is a known problem due to the extremely low quality of the plastic. 1st you have to open the back door! there is a small pin to the right side of the hatchback door exterior handle. bend a coat hanger and put it on the small pin, pull down and the door will open. Then remove inside panel and you can undo screws and replace the hatchback door handle.

The latch handle does not work on the rear cargo door. I can't open the door. It appears that the handle mechanism is broken.


I would pop off the rear hatch trim to look inside to see what is broken. Usually there are a bunch of push pins that hold the trim in place.

Broken rear hatch door handle on Toyota Sequioa


It sounds like the handle has become disconnected from the mechanism. You will have to remove the inner door panel and reattch. It is not a complicated or difficult job but if you get a professional it could cost upwards of $100.

Toyota 2000 Sienna Hatchback latch broke


YOU HAVE TO TAKE OFF THE DOOR PANEL ON THE INSIDE OF THE HATCH, IF IT WONT OPEN YOU HAVE TO DO IT FROM THE INSIDE, THEN THERE ARE 3 10MM BOLTS YOU TAKE OUT AND THE HANDLE AND PLATE LIGHT BRACKET WILL COME OUT AND YOU CAN REPLACE THE HANDLE... FYI MOST TIMES THE HANDLE BREAKS BECAUSE YOUR ACTUAL LATCH IS RUSTED OR FROZEN SO YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE BOTH!!
