SOURCE: My rear hatch will not

Thanks for using FixYa and welcome to the site. There is usually a cable that connects from the button to the latch. It may be broke. You may be able to get another key made at a dealership or by calling a locksmith.

SOURCE: 2004 pontiac aztec rear hatch latch

HIt the unlatch button twice, sometimes three times. As it was explained to me
it has to be tight in the winter so it doesn't fly up in the summer. You could also try cleaning the damper rods on either side of the hatch, and make sure that the
mounts for them are still tight. It's the nature of the beast.

Hello rear hatch wont open from outside I removed the light on inside of panel on hatch pulled bar and it opens but nothing on outside any idea how to repair?


It might take two people to see what is not happening that should be happening. Have one person on one side of the hatch operate the key or open handle and you stay on the other side of the hatch with the inner panel off and watch the mechanism. There is probably a broken tab on the actuator or a rod has come off of the actuator.

I can not get the tailgate to open in 2003 chevy blazer 2dr? It gets power to it because i can hear it when i push the button?


Inside the rear tail gate hatch should be a small access panel. Remove the access panel so you can manually open the rear hatch by grabbing the small metal rod linkage. They put this access panel so if the door motor actuator goes bad you can still open the rear hatch. After you open the rear hatch manually by the linkage rod. Remove the entire inside hatch trim panel so you can see all the inner workings of it and self diagnos. It sound like the electric door motor actuator has gone bad. This is pretty common for any GM product. Hope this hopes.

2005 dodge durango rear hatch will not unlock to open


I own a 04 durango and the door lock actuator froze up internally and I could not open the rear hatch. After hours of research on my computer nothing seemed to fix the problem. I eventually figured it out myself. You must pull the screws out of the molding on the inside of the rear door. You can now pull the molding toward you and look down at the actuator and latch. You can pull on the molding quite a bit if necessary. I never broke mine and I was pretty agressive with it. Now, on top of the whole mechanism is the lock actuator. There should be a white plastic lever sticking out towards the driver side. If you can slide it from back to forward "forward is front of vehicle", the lock should be working. If not your door is not unlocking. My durango had 3 Torx screws on top of the actuator. Remove them. This will take the actuator off of the latch. Now that the actuator is not binding or holding the lock from moving, again try to move the white plastic lever towards front of vehicle. It should click and you should be able to open the door.

Rear hatch doesnt open


Sounds like the mechanism has come apart inside the hatch itself. Can you open it with the key? Keep in mind when you use the key, you have to leave it turned and in the hatch otherwise it won't open. Had a similar problem on my Golf and had the dealer repair it for me.
