Maybe push the key all the way in with the broken piece? if you still have a little of the key left on "handle" you should be able to twist it still. If you broke it flat off it will be more difficult.

this worked on a house door for me don't see why it couldn't work here

2001 Jeep Cherokee, hatch door does not lock electronically, only when the hatch is 3/4 way open or more. So, locking mechanism works electronically, just not when the hatch is shut.


on the inside of the tailgate, at the top, there are two rubber grommets through which the wiring passes through from the body to the tail gate. I think the lock wires go through the one on the driver's side. Over time some of these wires break due to constant back and forth of the opening and closing of the tailgate.

In your case, when you open it 3/4 way open, the broken wire just barely makes re-contact with the other broken end.
I found the best solution is to remove the electrical connector from the tail gate, remove the grommet to find the broken wire, then solder a new piece and use heat shrink tubing to insulate it.

Is it the back hatch? Can you pull the rod on the broke side & pull handle at the same time?

1997 Grand Cherokee. Tail gate wont open. Handle


These rear hatches have a cheesy rod and clip setup. You have to remove the panel from inside, you have to loosen the screws around the hatch and pull it away and reach in down toward the latch and open it that way so you can get the 2 screws out of the bottom easier. There is a peice of plastic in these that's a dust barrier, try not to tear it up too badly, and when you go to put it back, I use a spray adhesive to stick it back on while I put the panel back on. after you get it open you will see a rod with what looks like threads hanging there attached to nothing, and a little thing that has 2 notched areas and a clip to hold that rod into those 2 notches. bend the clip down to make it tighter and then force the rod back into place that should fix your problems. If that's all in place then it's the latch mechanism, usually they can't be fixed because parts aren't available, just have to buy a new one and put it in.

Lift gate won't open


The latch plate inside the tailgate is adjustable. The problem is that YOU (Yes I had to on my Son's Gran Cherokee) have to take the inside door panel apart while it is still closed to get to it. It's difficult but do-able. Don't put it back together until after you have checked it several times including locking and unlocking.

1994 Jeep Grand cherokee rear lift gate


Well My 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the same problem and we had to just cut into the lift gate panel from the inside. It required cutting plastic but with a 94 looks arent everything and a working lift gate was worth it. But then we pealed back this black plastic mat under the panel and lifted up on the release bar(verticle bar that lifts the latch) and once we got it open we adjusted a little clamp that had slipped. Dont adjust it too much or when u lock it it wont lock! But sorry i dont know the name of the parts. But then u can screw the panel back in and it wont look to bad besides some cuts.

Liftgate won't open


We cut into the panel from the inside and pealed back the black mat on the inside and lifted up on the lift gate release bar! once we got it open we could adjust the clamp that dictates how much the hook is pulled back when u pull the handle. Ours slipped so it was doing the same thing as u said. It may not look pretty on the inside but the gate works and free of charge.
