Question about 2001 Dodge Caravan
I am trying to figure out how to open the back hatch on a 2001 caravan. i have tried to use the key to unlock it and the power lock button and it still does not open. i need to replace the tail light and cant open the hatch.
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.

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?
