I own a 04 durango and the door lock actuator froze up internally and I could not open the rear hatch. After hours of research on my computer nothing seemed to fix the problem. I eventually figured it out myself. You must pull the screws out of the molding on the inside of the rear door. You can now pull the molding toward you and look down at the actuator and latch. You can pull on the molding quite a bit if necessary. I never broke mine and I was pretty agressive with it. Now, on top of the whole mechanism is the lock actuator. There should be a white plastic lever sticking out towards the driver side. If you can slide it from back to forward "forward is front of vehicle", the lock should be working. If not your door is not unlocking. My durango had 3 Torx screws on top of the actuator. Remove them. This will take the actuator off of the latch. Now that the actuator is not binding or holding the lock from moving, again try to move the white plastic lever towards front of vehicle. It should click and you should be able to open the door.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge grand caravan rear hatch latch

ok, then the lock actuator is most likely seized, if you need instructions to repair, let me know, you have to get the part first, this will be a dealer item most likely. Then it's pretty simple. Remove the interior panel on the liftgate, you will see the latch and lock assembly, and a rod coming from it,the rod leads to the actuator. remove the rod, the retaining screws for the actuator, the electrical connector and then reverse for installation. Any issues let me know.

Good luck.

2005 dodge Durango rear door hatch won't open. how do I fix this?


Most of them I fix, the latch is bad. It's electrical. Some times it the wires. Usually the wires break at the top where the wires go from the door to the body. First climb in the back and see if there is a plug at the bottom/center of the door panel. If there is, remove it and use a screw driver, go left to right and catch the latch arm to release the door. If not, them remove the upper door panel around the window. It pops off. Start at the sides, the the top. Remove the screws on both side of the bottom piece(hidden by the top piece). Then pop the top of the bottom piece off. You wont get it out because there are screws on the bottom. Then you have to reach down and find the release arm and open the door to finish taking the panel off. Remove the bolts for the latch and replace it. Check the wires first. You will need a volt/ohm meter to check for power and ground.

How can I change the rear brake lights on my 2004 Dodge Durango if the back hatch won't open


That might get a little dicey. This sounds like a very good time to disassemble the interior panel on that back hatch and get it to open, even if only from the inside.

Dodge rear hatch


This is a common issue with this make and model. From the inside of the cab, you can loosen the plastic trim on the hatch at the bottom and reach in and locate the rod that connects to the actuator. You should be able to pull that and open the hatch.

Sounds like the sensor inside the rear latch. Most vehicles don't use an actual door switch these days.
