Try pressing and holding in the plastic trim piece at the bottom, right below the liftgate handle, while at the same time pulling on the handle. It should open. I had a GC that gave me the same problem opening.

SOURCE: 2012 grand cherokee how do you remove left front door trim panel

Be careful at what you are doing, because of the wires behind the door, but some where near the door handle ( not the release handle) there should be two small caps, pop those off, remove the screws, and the door panel should pop off easily with a screwdriver.

    How do i remove drivers side door panel on 2007 jeep compass with power windows?

    There are panel removal tools available, but any flat prytool will suffice to pry panel away. There are also screws located at the actual door pull/handle area to remove. after loose, panel must be raised vertically as the top trim/rubber will be hooked @ window opening. there are also wires to be watchfull of and clips to disconnect before panel will be successfully pulled away. Reinstall is just the reverse procedure.

    Have you tried holding in the plastic trim that surrounds the liftgate handle, with one hand, while pulling on the liftgate handle, to try and open the liftgate? I've seen this happen on a few Grand Cherokees and that should get it to open. Just make sure you hit the power unlock switch before trying that.

    Liftgate emergency release cannot be found

    2/3 of the way down this page with pictures

    All WJs feature an emergency unlock/lock switch lever for the liftgate. Should the liftgate become locked and unable to be opened due to a switch or circuit failure, a manual unlock/lock lever is accessible behind a small panel on the interior trim panel. As shown in the photos above, the lever can be moved up or down to unlock or lock the liftgate door.
