There is a rod that runs from the handle down to the latch that can sometimes come loose how ever this is a pain because you have to take all the panels loose to get to it but is a easy fix once you get to it.Its just a little plastic clip that slips back into place.Hope this has been helpful to you !

Lost remote need to open back hatch on buick rendevous 2004

You can buy replacement key fobs for it on the Internet. It is the only way I can open my hatch. Mine broke where the keychain went so I ordered a couple off of Ebay. They are pretty inexpensive and you can get different colors. You just have to order ones specifically made for your car. They will give you directions on how to program it to use with your car. My dealer emailed them to me. It mainly involves pressing buttons on the fob and taking your key in and out of the ignition. Very easy to do. Hope this helps. The remote was the only way I could open my hatch as the touch pad dosen't work. I found a place to order one and will be replacing it along with the hatch strap.

I had this same problem, I took the touchpad off by removing the two #15 torx screws from the outside of the car under the lift handle. Removed the wire clip which was very short. The touch pad comes apart. It is held together with six phillips screws. Its a pretty simple switch. I cleaned the copper contacts with copper a vinegar and salt solution. Heated the solution in the microwave and then soaked the contact plate. I also found corrosion on the terminal. Did a little soldering to fix it, put it all back together and it works fine. Hope this helps. :)
