2004 Mazda Hatchback - Hatch wont open

Twice now I've not realized my car was locked and went to open the trunk or hatch...the door handle/piece gets stuck pushed in and wont come out - causing the hatch not to open....once it has worked itself back out...but it's been 2 months now and I still can't open the hatch. I unlocked, and locked it several times, I've manually tried to pry it open, nothing. I've tried using the lock and unlock in the car instead of the remote....nothing. Please help

It's fine to use a battery with a higher cold crank rating than original. Consider the rating in the manual to be a minimum requirement. You'll be fine as long as the physical dimensions and terminal placement are compatible with your car. The battery manufacturer's guide should tell you which battery fits your car.

SOURCE: programming keyless remote


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the driver’s door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the driver’s door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1 twice. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) twice. Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done!

Good Luck.

How do you open the back door (no manual)

Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.

My Envoy does that too. I figured out the unlock automatic setting on my keys had to be pushed twice!

My 1994 subaru legacy trunk (hatchback) suddenly won't open. It never happened before. Remove the panel where the lock is? From the inside? Ros

Usually it is a little rust on the outside handle and it does not return fully. try to push the handle back to the return position and unlock the doors again. It should work then. The lock will not unlock if the handle is not fully returned. I sure hope this helps and have a great day.

My back hatch door doen't want to open

You need to climb in the back and remove the plastic panel from the hatch to access the lock. There may be a small access door over the locking mechanism to help you avoid removing the whole thing. Could be dirty and sticky and fixable with a bit of graphite lube.

Back hatch door closed on strap of backpack-now can't open door

Try pressing down on the trunk /hatch and at the same time turn the key to try and open it. It might take a lot of downware pressure to finally get it to come open.

Trunk lock won't open

Usually the problem is that the handle has not returned to the fully down position, probably because it's getting old/rusty.

When this happens on my Outback I just push the handle down until I hear it engage, then pull up and the door opens.

Some people lube the handle regularly. I haven't had to yet.

The handle may be stuck in the open position due to rust. Try to push back the handle and play (open/close/open) with the lock control. The same thing will eventually happen to the sliding door, and the culprit is the inside handle, stuck in the open position, preventing the door to close completely. Good luck.
