There should be an emergency bypass cable in the trunk to open the gas door.

if you can opperate the latch use something to make sure the jaws are open should close then or try adjusting the latch or post the trouble with it opening in the first place may have been a miss adjusted latch this also may be why it wont close

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.

You may have already checked this but there is a switch located close to the overhead button that will disengage the door buttons for child safety, is that turned off?

How to fix 2001 toyota sienna rear door not opening


The inner hatch latch mechanism is seized. You need to pull the door panel with it closed. It will be tight but it will come off without cracking. Spray lube around inside of latch. Get a long screw driver and pry the link from the key. The latch won't release until the key link goes to the unlock position. It will be seized. It is easy to figure which way to move it if you have someone insert the key into the closed hatch and try to move it.

Try replacing the ECC fuse on the drivers side fuse panel. This seems to control quite a bit of the rear electronics.

Back hatch of 2002 caravan


Lock &/or linkages probably seized. Try pushing in & out & using key to get it open, or keep trying button. When you do get it, You'll need to get lots of spray (penetrating) in & around those mechanisms. I took back cover off mine to get at it good. Let me know if you can finally at least get it open one way or another to get spray on that latch, and we'll go from there.

Bring it back to Circuit City, they tapped into a wire to the hatch lock and shorted it out, or cut it, they should fix it at no charge.
