Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have a 2000 cherokee and the tailgate will not open, how do you open it?
Did You open the back window first? when the window is open You should be able to turn the key lock. If not check to make shure Your power locks are unlocked. If that all fails then it is jammed. Take it to a car repair shop. They will open it for You. Good luck.

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.

SOURCE: Tailgate won't open
I've got the same problem, short term fix is push down on top of license plate light while pulling up on handle. Taking inside panel off and lubricating latch is final fix.
