This is not an uncommon problem this the jeep. You will have to crawl in the back and remove the plactic cover on the back hatch. Then you can reach down inside with a pliers ir needle nose and pull up on the release bar. The handle on the outside is made of plastic and theres a piece in there that breaks off after awhile. Before you do this you can probably order an outside handle from your local dealership. : )

My rear hatch will not open on my 1998 jeep grand cherokee


Your Grand Cherokee has a small pop off panel on the inside of the rear hatch trim...after carefully removing this panel reach inside the opening and you will find a release cable...pull on this cable and the hatch latch should release...then try lubricating the latch at all contact points, and the mechanism itself...if the latch does not release the next try, then you will need to replace this latch...this is a dealer or salvage yard part...your least costly replacement will be through the salvage yard market...some salvage yards are now on-line, and will ship the part to you. Hope this helps.

You will need to remove the inside door panel to get to the lach, the release arm clip may have broke and arm fell off, with the panel off you will see if the linkage fell off, start there.
