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.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Power lock on the tailgate not working all other power locks work


Sounds like the lock actuator in the tailgate has gone bad. I have a 1999 that had the same problem. Its about a 120 part from the chrysler dealership and involves taking the interior trim off the tailgate to repair.

Tailgate doesn't open


the most likely failure is the tailgate lock actuator, the tailgate will have to be taken apart from inside (very difficult)

The tailgate on my 1994 grand cherokee won't open


I had the same problem on my 94 grand cherokee! Try pushing in hard near the latch on the tailgate on the outside then pulling it open. I tried everything before stumbling on to this solution!! Lube up the latch and you should be fine.
