If the button doesn't work. Climb to the back, there is a plastic plug at the bottom of the panel. Remove it and insert a screw driver. Catch onto the latch and push it left or right ( I can't remember which way) when you hear it click, push the hatch out and open. You have to put it on a scanner to find the problem. Could be the switch, BCM, wiring, or the latch.

Trunk will not open w/ key ,button or manual we use safety latch inside to open

Joann, 1 st check the latch assy. for any visible damage, replace if bent or worn. Sounds like the lock mechanism is seizing up, You can try to spray with a thin oil WD (penetrent oil) etc. to free up including inside lock, to lube the small tumblers inside. You have to, if able, remove latch assembly and soak in oil over night if real bad.
The lock actuator may also be defective and links below will tell more about that.

Back hatch of 2002 caravan

Lock &/or linkages probably seized. Try pushing in & out & using key to get it open, or keep trying button. When you do get it, You'll need to get lots of spray (penetrating) in & around those mechanisms. I took back cover off mine to get at it good. Let me know if you can finally at least get it open one way or another to get spray on that latch, and we'll go from there.

The power sliding passenger door will not open even manually. At first it didn't want to close, but after I slammed it shut it didn't want to open. A few days later I was trying to get the door panel off...

I think you have a latch issue or a latch release issue, pull the door panel and try and release the door latch, pull the latch and try to see what if anything is wrong with it, also make sure the linkage going to the latch from the release handle is hooked up or not otherwise damaged.

2000 chevy blazer lift gate stuck shut. when pressing the button (outside and inside) to open you can hear the motor but nothing happens. Was advised to remove carpet over panel to locate a hole that would...

No hole behind the carpet. You need to get to where the striker on the glass meets the latch (at the top, center of the tailgate). The latch release actuator has a broken lever that pushes against the latch to release it. Common problem. There is a screw holding the trim panel near the latch area. You are gonna have to force it loose. You need to pull back the panel at the latch area so you can get a tool (or a finger) down inside next to the latch and manually release it. There is a pivot on the latch you need to push down to release the latch. Once opened, remove the trim panel. You will then see a big silver panel covering the inside of the tailgate panel. You will see the actuator that needs replacing (it's held on with rivets). Drill out the rivets and install bolts if you don't have a rivet tool.
