Not 100% sure but normally this is because the gas struts that hold it up are probably worn out or leaking slightly, only cure is to replace them. Temporary fix is to cut a piece of wood to the correct length and use it as a prop to support door when open

My 2006 dodge durango rear hatch shuts but the back hatch lamp light n interior lights stay on why

The door switch isn't being pushed in far enough when the hatch is closed. The wire going to that switch may be shorted to the body somewhere, too.

How can I change the rear brake lights on my 2004 Dodge Durango if the back hatch won't open

That might get a little dicey. This sounds like a very good time to disassemble the interior panel on that back hatch and get it to open, even if only from the inside.

How do you remove the lift gate or rear hatch from my 2000 Dodge Durango? I see the bolt on the hinges but I don't know where to un plug the wiring..

I haven't had one apart, but i would guess behind the head-liner near where the harness passes through the body. similar to my wife's 08.

How do I remove the tailgate trim from 1998 durango? My tailgate will not open, not with a key, or automatic lock it just won't open. Thinking it needs a new actuator, but i can't access it to...

If you can get the hatch unlocked and opened, you can remove the interior panel and unplug the factory powered door lock. This will not do anything to your security systems. The only down fall is it will only open with the key. If the hatch doesn't work with the key either, I would say you need a new lock assembly. I have shaved my door handles and have removed the power door lock, so I know it will work just fine ( I depend solely on my shave door handle system and my security system (Viper) to access my truck) - from Lots of info there..I agree with losing the power opening option if you have it...I am renewing a 98 Durango and its keys all the way...needed new lift struts for the rear hatch tho..(that thing is very heavy...I HAD to have help installing the new struts, I had held it up with my skull to remove the worn ones....definitely use E-Bay for parts search and full synth oil w/Lucas synth additive will make the motor happy.Hope things work out....

Dome lights stay on after car is started

Check the rear hatch switches, My ford winstar did the same thing. I had ford fix it the 1st time, trouble came back, took panel apart myself, I found 2 switches 1 on each side of the hatch. I Isolated to one, and the other didn't do anything so I switched them around and trouble never came back.
