SOURCE: tailgate door and window won't open

Check in your user's manual for your fuse location on the rear windshield wiper. These grand cherokee's have electronic actuators in every door. Inside these actuators they have very little motors and move everything via plastic. Very bad design flaw, as most of these actuators are 300-400 dollars to replace. You can find ones in salvage yards for 50 though. On your rear hatch, the door and the window are run by this actuator.

SOURCE: 1996 Isuzu Rodeo stuck tail gate

Remove the interior trim panel which will not be easy since the gate is up ---- you can then access the lock mechanism and will probably find a bent linkage rod or a broken plastic retainer clip.

The tailgate won't open


Try lowering the rear window with the key and opening the tailgate. After you finally get it open, spray all moving parts, both sides with a lubricant / cleaner such as WD-40 then lubricate with 3 in 1 oil. Not sure what worked for us but the tailgate opens both ways now and that is what we did.
Good Luck,
Sam

Bronco rear window was being rolled up with a key when spare tire bracket was closed. It stopped halfway up and now won't move. I suspect the tailgate open switch. Where is this switch?


The electric key switch is next to the key cylinder on the rear door. You can see it easily with the window down and weatherstripping pulled out. The wiring may have become chaffed with the window over the years or the switch corroded in the contact points inside.

Rearwindow/ door


if there are no broken wires inside the tailgate try lubing the latches with WD40 and open and close the tailgate several times. If the latches are properly closed on both sides the window will not work

'94 4runner 4dr. Inop. r/rear window & rt. frt. window will go down not up.


There is a saftey built into the tailgate that will interupt the ground to the switch in the center console with the tailgate open. This keeps the operator from trying to roll the window up with the tailgate open. If you have no ground to the rear window switch it is most likely the tailgate safety switch. If it is like my '88 it is built into the drvers side tailgate latch.

Back door wont open and window wont go down


The rear window has to be completely down in order to move the tailgate! You should be happy that your window is stuck up, unlike mine which is stuck all the way down! I have to completly take apart my tailgate!! If you want to try a trick to get the rear window down, my bronco has a rear window switch right next to the headlight knob, take the 2 purple wires on that window switch, and cross them, if your motor still works and if the wires are good, that should make the window go down!!! good luck, hope that helps!

The keyed lock on my 98 passport on the tail gate has been punched in, I can't figure out even how to get the tail gate open, because the handle on the out side seems to be un atatched, I feel that if I...


I believe you have to open the rear window to open the tailgate??
Tailgate opens right to left [ passenger to driver ] side?
Tailgate handle will not work if window not open - feels like it is disconnected. The "button" releases the window only.
If you open the rear window and the tailgate still will not open. You need to remove the inside tailgate cover to get access to the handle and release switch. You can access the the window release the same way [ just a little harder to do]. You will probably end up breaking the vinyl panel to do this but so will the auto body shop and they will charge you $$$$$ to replace it.
