If your new hatch door is not identical or the correct application then it is the wrong door. Of course every differences matters, your door is not closing like it should. Whoever installed your door (and got paid) just want you keep it because they got paid. If the upside down lift is preventing the door from closing then they need to fix it, if the door is the wrong application for your car then have them get you the right door.

SOURCE: Battery died now power sliding doors and rear hatch not operating

1) Unlock all doors from driver's door while it is open. The driver's door is the only door to remain open during this process! 2) Turn the key from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. All the doors will lock and unlock if program is successful. 3) Turn key OFF and remove key from ignition. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the remote. (Press sliding door or rear hatch and it will open!) 4) If door locks do not respond, wait several seconds and press button again. If doors still fail to respond, try repeating steps (1-3).

Removal of rear door lift hatch interior plastic panel on a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan to push out dent in metal door from the inside.


The rear door panel is secured to the door using screws and clips. The screws will be in the handle used to close the door and there may be plastic plugs in the handle hiding the screws. Once these screws are removed, the handle will come off. Look for any more screws along the panel. If there are more, they will be visible. Once the screws are removed, pull on the panel to release the clips that secure it to the door. These clips will require some force to release them and will make a snap/pop sound once released. You may have to put a screwdriver/wedge between the panel and door to start the process of releasing the clips

Does the hatch open up electrically??? If not, then just take off the hinge bolts and struts, hold the new door in place, re install the bolts ( without tightening them completely) and then shut the door and see where it has to be adjusted correctly to close easily. Then you can tighten the bolts tightly and re install the struts. You will need at least 3 people to help.

2007 gm Yukon , hatch will start to open when activated but then stops itself before reaching the top and starts closing. Does not have any suspension to stay up by itself when opened and lifted manually


If one of the "suspension" or Lift Support" parts to the rear hatch fails. The other one will not have the energy to keep the hatch open. When the hatch gets to a certain point the door closure senses inaccurately that someone is pushing the hatch down to close. The reason behind this is that there is enough force on the engine lifting it that it is "tricked" into thinking that it is being closed.
This is probably the most likely explanation. The solution is to replace the weak lift support.
Here is a link to a supply house that should have the replacement. It is important to follow the instructions when installing this item.

Hope this helps,

My rear hatch and glass hatch will not open from the outside. The only way to open the lift is via the manual latch. All the other doors woork fine via the remote or inside.


This is extremely common!
The micro-switch inside the glass hatch release is faulty, telling the door that it is partially depressed, thus shutting down opening for safety reasons.
You can verify this by opening the glass hatch (there is a access panel at the bottom of the door on the inside), removing the trim cover from behind the glass handle (two philips screws and one plastic push in fastener), then unplugging the glass handle.
Your door will now function normally, but without glass opening ability until you replace the handle.
The handle only takes a few 10mm nuts to remove and can be changed in a few minutes. It retails for around $35 from your dealer.
