SOURCE: lift gate wont open

OK, this minor collision may have shifted the actual clip and latch assembly. You may have to totally disassemble the latch assembly to release this lift gate.

Any kind of major or minor shifting of the lift gate lock latch assembly can cause misalignment that will jam this delicate precise locking mechanism.

SOURCE: the rear lift gate will not open or will the window

if they are controled or usually opened electrically, then it is probably a fuse. Check your fuse panel

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: rear door lactch will not open but other doors do

I have the same issue on my 2002 Escape. I hear the cylinder motors engaging on the doors but not the liftgate so all I can assume is the wiring loom on the passenger side upper corner of the liftgate needs attention. That is where the wiring is for the door motor that releases the window and gate. I will post again after I solve this. 6/28/2009

My Chrysler 2005 Town and Country rear lift gate will not open with remote or key. Key turns, but doesn't seem to engage with anything.


On the inside door panel of the rear door you should find a plastic plug about 1" around. Remove the plug, inside you should see a post sticking up. Put the correct size socket on it and turn CW to open the lock manually. Its a good idea to spray WD40 in there and let it soak for 30 minutes to try loosen it up before you try turning it. as its not opening because the lock is rusted and probably seized.

Rear lift gate on 1998 town and country won't open


Have similar problem with my 2000 T&C. To open, I have to put the palm of my right hand on the bevel where the latch is and push down while lifting the latch with my left hand.

2008 Chrysler town and country lift gate repair


You may have a leak in the hydraulic system, just enough juice to push it open but not enough to keep it up. Open the door by hand, hold it up for a moment and then let it go. If it drops quickly(don't hurt yourself!), it's probably the motor; if it goes down slowly with a hiss, it's probably the hydraulics. Good luck.

Liftgate wont open, have to use the key, but if I press the key to close the rear lift gate it will close it.


can you hear the latch release when you try to open? if no clicking noise is heard then most likely a bad latch assembly. also check the rear door control module to see if smells burnt, if it does it won't send open signal. the module is located behind the plastic shroud on the left of the rear hatch.

My lift gate on my 96 town and country is not opening


In that case, check both lifters on both sides!

One of them is not working anymore!

U could check it by removing the scred bottom part and let it go, if it doen't pushes, means u have to replace and buy a new one!

Back door wont unlock


I have a 1999 Chrysler T&C 3.8 liter like yours and it sounds
like you are having the same the same problem I had.
Every time you hit the door unlock or lock button, it made a loud
buzz like you just missed a question on a game show. ;-)

It turned out the problem was the rear lift gate lock actuator. The part costs
about $40 from the dealer if I can recall correctly.

The repair involves: 1st removing the middle and rear seats to get
access from the inside to the rear gate
(obviously you will have to remove the seats from the side doors
since the rear gate won't open yet)

Remove the plastic inside rear gate panel and molding (phillips screws)
Once you remove the panel, you may see a way to manually
open the rear gate. As I recall, I think there was a access opening
covered from the inside with a black weather/insulation tape.
Carefully removing this out of the way gave access to a way to
manually open the gate, making the rest of the work easy.

Remove the electrical connector and the mounting bolts
to remove from the actuator. It is attached to the inside
rear gate with 2 or 3 bolts (10 mm?)

Remove the old one and replace the part, then put it all back
together, make sure you reconnect the electrical connector

Takes about an hour for the whole job (max)

Hope this helps,

Wes
