ive got a 07 equinox and the rear hatch wont open as of yesterday. on the inside of the hatch there is an access plug you can pop off and inside you'll see a metal switch with a hole in it. if you push it away from yourself, it will unlatch it. i dont know why the hatch wont open as ive checked the fuse and its ok.

Hi, the repairs for the liftgate involves "reflashing " the module which would have to be done at the dealership.
Reflashing the module involves hooking the dealership scanner and downloading new software into the module. Here are the bulletins.
THIS BULLETIN SUPERSEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 23-035-00 REV. A, DATED OCT. 27, 2000, WHICH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM YOUR FILES. THIS IS A COMPLETE REVISION AND NO **ASTERISKS** HAVE BEEN USED TO HIGHLIGHT CHANGES. SUBJECT: Power Mode Closes Lift Gate But Does Not Open The Lift Gate
NOTE: THIS BULLETIN SHOULD BE PERFORMED ON ALL IN STOCK VEHICLES BUILT BEFORE NOVEMBER 13, 2000 (MDH1113XX). OVERVIEW: This bulletin involves flashing the Power Lift Gate (PLG) module and resetting obstacle detection values. Adjusting the lift gate striker and/or installing lift gate overslam bumper shims may also be required.
MODELS: 2001-07 (RS) Town & Country/Caravan/Voyager 2001-07 (RG) Chrysler Voyager (International Markets)
SYMPTOM/CONDITION: The PLG functions in the power closing mode but not the opening mode. The lift gate is not flush with the tail lights. Low seal load prevents the lift gate from "popping off" and moving the lift gate latch out of the primary latching position.
DIAGNOSIS: DIAGNOSIS 1: Power operate the lift gate to open with the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Fob or button in the overhead console. If the lift gate does not move out of the primary latching position, perform Repair Procedure 1.
DIAGNOSIS 2: Inspect the lift gate for flushness to the body above and below the tail lamps. If the lift gate is underflush to the body above the tail lamp and underflush or flush below the tail lamp, go to Procedure 2A. If the lift gate is flush or overflush to the body above and below the tail lamp, go to Procedure 2B. If the lift gate is flush or underflush to the body above the tail lamps and over flush below the tail lamp AND the difference is more than 5mm, go to Procedure
You have to reflash at the dealer....

If it's not unlocking, The only way o get it open is pop off the trim piece that goes around the window. On the bottom panel there might be two screws to remove on each side. If not then it will pop off to a point, because there are screws on the bottom you can't access. Pull it back and reach down and find the rods that go to the latch. usualy the one that is horizontal is the one that unlocks the hatch. move it left or right to unlock it, try the handle to see if it opens. If it doesn't reach again and open it from the other rod. Pull up on it. Good luck
