There is a small access panel in the middle of the door. This will give you access to the door latch.

That might get a little dicey. This sounds like a very good time to disassemble the interior panel on that back hatch and get it to open, even if only from the inside.

Dodge rear hatch


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.

How do I remove the tailgate trim from 1998 durango? My tailgate will not open, not with a key, or automatic lock it just won't open. Thinking it needs a new actuator, but i can't access it to...


If you can get the hatch unlocked and opened, you can remove the interior panel and unplug the factory powered door lock. This will not do anything to your security systems. The only down fall is it will only open with the key. If the hatch doesn't work with the key either, I would say you need a new lock assembly. I have shaved my door handles and have removed the power door lock, so I know it will work just fine ( I depend solely on my shave door handle system and my security system (Viper) to access my truck) - from Dakota-Durango.com Lots of info there..I agree with losing the power opening option if you have it...I am renewing a 98 Durango and its keys all the way...needed new lift struts for the rear hatch tho..(that thing is very heavy...I HAD to have help installing the new struts, I had held it up with my skull to remove the worn ones....definitely use E-Bay for parts search and full synth oil w/Lucas synth additive will make the motor happy.Hope things work out....

My 2006 dodge durango rear hatch door will not open, I am looking for a manual way to open the rear hatch? and a solution to this problem. also looking for a detailed manual for the fuse box.as I am...


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.
