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.

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. A power cord from something I was hauling got stuck under the rear hatch and now it won't open. The handle moves freely, but the door won't open and the key won't turn.


I'll tell you from experience this is no fun to fix unless you are two feet tall. You've got to get into the rear cargo area and remove the inner panel of the hatch. It "may" be necessary to break a little of the plastic off depending on it's elasticity. Once the panel is off take a flashight and locate the latch release linkage. With one hand(usually the left hand) pull the linkage forcefully to the left as you face the hatch from inside. This should release the hatch then you'll be able to escape...lol. Good luck, Dana P.S. It goes without saying you should bring a flashlight with you.

How do you get liftgate open on a 97 Laredo with a broken lock?


You need to remove the panel from the liftgate and unlock and open it manually at the latch. It is not fun, but you can get the panel off with the hatch closed.

I have a 97 Jeep Grande Cherokee, my rear hatch is close but I get an message telling me that rear hatch isn't close, in which it keeps my interior lights on and drains my battery


check the sensors and clean them with steel wool. the hatch may not be close to each other so check that as well you may have to loosen them up and tighten them again but try that first

96 jeep Grand Cherokee tailgate will not open


This is kind of tricky. OK let's start, you have to crawl into the rear hatch area from the inside of the car. You'll have to pull the rear panel off the hatch, a screwdriver between the panel and hatch near the window will work. There might be 2 screws on the panel you could take out. The trick is to pull the panel far away enough to stick your arm down towards the latch and release it by hand. We did this at the dealer all the time.
