Question about Cars & Trucks
Our friend started the process of closing the hatch on her Mercedes ML class SUV when she realized she forgot to get something out and reached back in. The hatch, though, continued closing on her head . . . and continued . . . . and continued . . . until it clamped her head down onto the deck! She went straight to the hospital where they found her skull had been dented by the hatch. We want to know if any SUVs out there have auto-reverse when there is interference in the closing process, just as what is required on garage doors?
Report the matter to a service center
it could be a problem load sensor or a serious fault that has a recall on it

i have had the same problem many times with my mercury villager. one thing i have found to work on more than one occasion is while it is closed, push the back hatch as if you were shutting it. hit the lock button ( either on remote or inside of van ). then push the handle out on the hatch to make sure it will catch all the way. unlock the doors and pull on the handle, the hatch should open with no problem.

Something similar happened to us. A handle strap from an empty fabric grocery bag got caught in the latch system of the rear hatchback on our toyota highlander when we inadvertently shut the door on it. We could not pull the strap free and we could not get the rear door to open or close. In the end we were able to cut the strap out (from the inside) with a pocket knife and then pull the pieces free of the latch.

you don't. take it into a Hyndai Dealership and have the handle repaired/replaced. The rear hatch panel/cover has to be removed (from inside the vehicle) to access the hatch latch and open the door.. from that point the handle can be replaced/repaired.
