This is a common issue with this make and model. From the inside of the cab, you can loosen the plastic trim on the hatch at the bottom and reach in and locate the rod that connects to the actuator. You should be able to pull that and open the hatch.
I own a 04 durango and the door lock actuator froze up internally and I could not open the rear hatch. After hours of research on my computer nothing seemed to fix the problem. I eventually figured it out myself. You must pull the screws out of the molding on the inside of the rear door. You can now pull the molding toward you and look down at the actuator and latch. You can pull on the molding quite a bit if necessary. I never broke mine and I was pretty agressive with it. Now, on top of the whole mechanism is the lock actuator. There should be a white plastic lever sticking out towards the driver side. If you can slide it from back to forward "forward is front of vehicle", the lock should be working. If not your door is not unlocking. My durango had 3 Torx screws on top of the actuator. Remove them. This will take the actuator off of the latch. Now that the actuator is not binding or holding the lock from moving, again try to move the white plastic lever towards front of vehicle. It should click and you should be able to open the door.
you may need to replace the power door actuator on that door give these websites a try www.autozone.com and www.alldatadiy.com if all fails stop by your local Dodge dealership in the parts department and they be able to print you off pictures and diagrams showing you how the door comes a part wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
take it to a dealer. you need a CCN (cabin compartment node) also known
as a instrument cluster, it controls you dome lights. good news they
had a recall on the durangos for this problem and even if the recall
was done it should still be covered assuming im right about the
cause... (i work at a dodge dealer and i have seen it a few times)
