SOURCE: rear hatch stuck

Emergency trunk release if you need it open now. from there you could try to fix the problem or take it to your dealer, you may still be under warranty 1. Remove trim plug to expose the access hole in the trim panel. The access hole is located on the inside of the liftgate. 2. Use a tool (flathead screwdriver) to reach through the access hole in the trim panel. 3. Pry the left release lever up to the unlock position. Pry the right release lever up to unlatch the liftgate. 4. Reattatch the trim plug. this information can be found on page 2-13 of your owners manual

SOURCE: HHR back hatch problem

There is a small hook on the right(driver side) of the latch that you can push with a screwdriver (it is hard to see you have to poke around a little)after you take the panel plug out of the rear door cover.I have the same problem I found that that the coil has become week and it does not have enough power to push the lath open. GOOD LUCK diddorat@yahoo.ca

SOURCE: my power hatch release wont open so i cant get my tailgate open

I have the same problem, when I took the door apart I found that there is a plastic extension on the end of cyclinder that moves in and out on that electric motor you hear. Well the plastic extension is broken off and that is what moves the lever to open your window latch. I tryed Krazy Glue with JB weld to fix the plastic piece but the first release of the window it just broke off again so I'll have to order a new one. You can't just order the plastic extension according to Chevy you have to order the motor aswell about $80.00 CAD.
To get the door apart yourself, I just pulled out on the plastic trim on top enough to get a long narrow screw driver down there and you will see a brass like lever in the shape of a L , you want to push that to the left to release the window latch, and then you can unscrew the plastic trim properly and go from there.

SOURCE: Can't open back hatch.

it sounds like maybe somthing in the linkage system is disconnected might want to take a look inside use the repair manual to figure out how to take the back door panel off from the inside

repair manual should run you anywhere from $15 to $20 and helps with just about everything

SOURCE: Chevy Tahoe Sunroof is stuck open moves slightly forward and back

It sounds like it just needs to be reinitialized. Turn your key to the on position with motor off and hold the up/full vent button down for at least 30 seconds or until your sunroof either clicks or goes to the full vent position. That should fix your problem.

2006 jeep liberty rear lift glass won;t close


Mine did this too....the latch kept getting stuck. If you put the key in the ignition and unlock the power doors, pull on the gate door (don't open it, just enough to release the latch), and it should come out so the hatch will latch.

My rear hatch light indicates that the hatch is open which it is closed tight. Because of this my interior lights stay on and my remote start won't work. How can I fix this? My jeep is the 2009...


The switch on the latch is more then likely stuck. If you can see it spray it with some electrical cleaner and open and shut the hatch a few times.

The interior lights stay on because the warning lights say a door is still open but it is closed. Is there any way i can disconnect the warning light, whats the best solution


Hi, There are several causes I would look for.
Each door has a door button that indicates if the door is closed, or turns on the interior light if it is open. There are also contacts on the sliding doors that when they mate, the warning light will go off.
I would try to find the cause.
Do the following.

1 Check to make sure all of the doors are closing properly. You may have one that looks like it is, but is not.

Each door that swings open, i.e. the two front side doors and the hatch should have button switches located in the front door jam of the front doors and one for the rear hatch. Somtimes you will find more then one button.

2 Close all doors
3 Open the driver's side door. (The one that gets the most use), turn on the key but DON'T start the car.
4 find the buttons and push on them on and off to see if the warning light goes out. If it does, then the switch on that door or the door closure position or latch should be able to be adjusted so it works again. If it doesn't, go to #5
(Note: the switch may have a broken off tip, so it may be necessary to replace it. )

5 Repeat for the passenger side door. If necessary go to 6
6 Follow test for the rear hatch. (you may need someone to help on this step.

The sliding door should have some type of "button" like contacts. There may be something lodged into one of them that is giving your a faulty contact.

Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

My 1997 Grand Cherokee laredo has a problem with the rear hatch open/closed sensor; the ''brains'' frequently thinks the door is open when it is not. This is annoying when driving, leading to blinking...


the rear hatch issue is due to a faulty latch assembly or needs adjustment. replace that latch issue should be resolved. but u can access the wiring to it by removing the hatch panel and seperate the connector at the latch assembly , this should turn out the light, and also keep the alarm from going off!! hope that was helpful!!

Rear Hatch Window


This could be a simple door adjustment. Have someone sit in the car while you push in on the hatch. See if the light goes off . If the light goes off, then adjust the striker plate so the hatch closes tighter.
