I'm not familiar with your specific car, but if you have a tailgate, there will be a pane you can remove on the inside that will allow you access to the mechanics of the door release. You can operate the rods through the access holes.

SOURCE: power door locks do not work

the reason the locks dont work more then likely there is a code stored in the bcm for a lock output circuit normally caused by one if not both of the sliding door acuators. even if you change the acuators the locks still will not work until the code is cleared.

SOURCE: remote lock for back doors and rear tail gate door

Actually I found a solution. I remove the lock relay form the fuse panel and placed it back in place. I did not replace it. After doing this they worked. I probably need to replace the relay at some point, but for now that solved the problem. It was hard for me to believe that there is a separate relay for the lock and unlock circuit.

SOURCE: tail gate wont stay closed -latches not catching

I had this problem with my 2004 for the past year. Then this past week end it stopped latching all together. I found on mine the handle mechinism froze up. All the wd40 I tried did not help. I had to replace the handle. one thing I saw that could be a problem if it has happened since owning is if the connecting rods that go from the handle to the side latches are not adjusted right. they clip into the handle mechanism and if they were cannected with latch down they may not move enough to allow latch to lock completely.

Hi;The latch/ouside handle is held on by four bolts on the inside of tailgat. Remove the four bolts and the handle should come clear so you can see the mechanism. Your on you own now.

My rear tail gate latch is locked open.How do I unlock this latch so I can close my tail gate


more likely than not the latch has closed some how if you have some one hold the the handle to open the tailgate you can open the latch by hand with a screw driver if your not sure what it should look like look at another door latch in the open position very simple to do and you cant hurt anything doing it this way

Why does our dash info say rear access open and how do you fix it?


your rear glass on your tail gate is ajar ..press the round circle button on the gate from the outside and the glass will pop open at yah close the glass a little harder since the latch is a bugger to catch i get this all time with mine

and your rear access msg will disappear and your rear windshild motor may work since the glass isnt fully closed the wiper wont run

good luck

Jeep Liberty tailgate won't close.


I would check to see if the latch is in the closed position.Using a screwdriver I would (with the gate open)have someone or your self do the action like you are opening the tail gate and try to move the striker in the door like the door is being pulled open.If the latch moves to the open positin gently try to close the door to see if it latches.

Rear door does not close


Look at the door's locking mechanism. Is the Latch Gate in the down position? Is the Door Mechanism properly tightened to the door? These are Torx/Hex head bolts. Tighten these if needed.
If the Latch Gate is down:
1. Unlock the door.
2. Lift up/out on the Door Handle as if you were opening the door.
3. Use a screwdriver to lift the Latch Gate so it lifts the Gate up and out of the way.
Alot of these Gates have plastic coverings that sometimes split and stick or cause the door mechanism to jam. Inspect the Door Mechanism for anything that could be causing it to jam. Using a pair of needle nose pliers remove any of this split plastic (if so equipped) pulling as much of it off the Latch Gate.
Use WD40 with the red spraying hose on and stick it as many openings you can and lubricate as much of the Door Mechanism as you can.
Check the operations (plural) of the Door Mechanism, Opening and Closing the Gate using the screw driver to push in the Striker Gate causing the Latch Gate to rotate back down into position. Repeat... checking for the Latch Gate to Release Up (on it's own) when you "open" the door. If it doesn't, then there is either jammed or a return spring is broken.
Have you dented or distorted the Door and / or Door Mechanism in the process of trying to slam the door close? You will have to either bend the the door area back to as close to possible the original shape. Use the other door on the other sides as a guide on this. You may have to replace the Door Mechanism itself, as when they are malfunctioning and are slammed (over and over) it could break the Mechanism itself. If the Mechanism is broke, you will have to remove and replace the entire mechanism.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information of questions. Feel free to conatct me at FixYa.com!
