SOURCE: 2008 Crysler Aspen SUV: rear door will not open.

The rear door lock was broken inside, because not even the latch will not open it. This is the root cause of the problem. You need to remove the rear door trim panel with door closed. This is the most difficult operation.


Start by folding the rear chair near to the rear door involved, or remove it if you want.


Then you will proceed to rear door trim panel removal:
1. Lower door glass.
2. Open remote handle trim plug and remove screw from inside arm rest pull cup.
3. Open remote handle trim plug and remove screw from behind inside remote handle (REMOTE HANDLE ATTACHING SCREW).
4. Disengage push-in fasteners attaching trim to door panel around perimeter of trim panel (DOOR TRIM PANEL).
5. Tilt trim panel outward to clear locator pins on backside of trim panel.
6. Disconnect trim panel from retainer channel in inner belt weatherstrip at top of door by lifting while gently jiggling .
7. Move trim panel away from door and disengage actuator cables attaching inside remote handle (DISCONNECT REAR DOOR TRIM PANEL) and (REAR DOOR TRIM PANEL MECHANICAL CONNECTIONS).
8. Disconnect wire connectors to switches.
CAUTION: Do not allow door trim panel to hang by the wire connector or wiring.
9. Disconnect wire connector from power door lock switch, mirror switch, and power window switch if so equipped.
10. Remove trim panel from door.

After rear door trim panel removal, you will be able to access the door lock and open it from inside of the car. Then replace or repair the door lock, and refit all in reverse order with rear door open this time.

SOURCE: Tail gate will not open

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If it clicks then she's still ok. The lock may have been stuck that's why it won't open. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you spray WD40 on the mechanism. This will loosen the lock and will resolve the problem.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

SOURCE: 2004 chryaler Pacifica tail gate location

I have run into this problem and i found that the switch that operates alarm and inside light is bad, the switch is located on the latch, the latch may need to be removed to replace the switch. some dealers do not sell just the switch, i have run into this problem where switch is not replaceable the complete latch needs to be replaced.

Another problem i have run into is the wiring going into the hatch breaks, the wiring from bendine due to door opening and closing breaks a wire or two due to bending , locate wiring coming into rear hatch and check each wire,
