There is a manual lock/unlock lever on the inside of the hatch behind a small, almost square, cover.

Sorry to say I haven't had a chance to tackle the problem yet and no one has given me any suggestions. I recently did a repair to the driver side door for the power window and it was a huge pain as it was difficult to remove the entire mechanism and there were several rivets which needed to be drilled out and replaced. Hopefully I will not have this problem with the rear hatch.

Sounds like the actuator went out. There normally run 40-60 for the part and does not take long to replace normally 30 minutes.

SOURCE: DOES THE REAR HATCH HACE A KEY SLOT TO UNLOCK THE HATCH?

I think you will find a small hatch on the inside of the tailgate,this will allow you access to unlock the tailgate.Possibly the lock actuator has failed.

Since the driver's door gets the most use, and all circuits run through the master switch, check driver's door first and check the wiring at the hinge area for breaks.

Do the door lock switches on the doors work both ways? If not, then check to see if you have different relays for the lock and unlock functions, like my jeep does. You may have a burnt relay or possibly a bad / stuck switch. My relays are not in the fuseblock, but in a separate relay center under the glovebox, so you should check your owners manual for the relay location. The only way to lock the back hatch would be by key, but you'll have to relock it everytime you use the remote until you can find the problem. You should also check out your ground wire for the lock circuit. Happy hunting!!

Did these doors quit at the same time or over a period. It seems that the actuators for the locks have gone bad. With the mentioned doors, that's a lot weight for the actuators to unlock and pop open. With the remotes and console not working , that's more reason to think the actuators are the problem.

Problem The rear hatch door will not unlock.


First, on the rear hatch, there is an actuator. On FX, when you close the trunk, it kind of **** the hatch closed all the way. When you press lock on the remote, this same actuator locks it as well.
Now,
1) when you unlock the car from the inside, go back there and press the button to open the hatch door manually, do you here any noises?
2) Close all doors, go back close to the hatch button and using the remote , lock the car and then unlock the car. you should hear a sound from the actuator locking and unlocking the lock on the rear hatch!

If you don't hear this, your actuator is inop.
Next step would be to check the fuses inside the car, on the left bottom driver side, and outside on the battery compartment.
It might be just a fuse.
If all fuses check ok, your actuator is most likely gone! Not ea expensive fix, just time consuming!

NOW, if you can hear the noises, then something is either broken inside the actuator or one of the cables is loose!
Hope that helps.
Also, what year and miles on your fx?

The lock is stuck in the "locked" position.
When you close the hatch, it is jamming the latch hook into the wrong area.

Manually open the hatch. Unlock the hatch (even tho the hatch is already open). there are two bolts holding the metal "loop", the loop has moved. Adjust the metal loop and close the hatch / lock it, etc.

Battery died now power sliding doors and rear hatch not operating


1) Unlock all doors from driver's door while it is open. The driver's door is the only door to remain open during this process! 2) Turn the key from OFF to RUN 8 times within 10 seconds, with the eighth turn ending in RUN. All the doors will lock and unlock if program is successful. 3) Turn key OFF and remove key from ignition. Within 20 seconds, press any button on the remote. (Press sliding door or rear hatch and it will open!) 4) If door locks do not respond, wait several seconds and press button again. If doors still fail to respond, try repeating steps (1-3).
