Two problems with those are that the lock and latch assemblies rust up or the linkage rod between the handle and latch falls off. Best and easiest way in is to cut a hole into the plastic panel and reach in and pull the rod up. There is another way that requires drilling a small hole in the outside handle cover but most people opt for the other way. the panels are usually available very cheap at most junkyards. I use epoxy putty to hold the rod into the clip after re-attaching it because the clip itself is a poor design that fails easily.

Rear hatch is stuck closed on 1995 grand Cherokee laredo

pull the inner trim panel from the inside to access the lock rods then you will be able to open the hatch by hand. I had one with the same problem a few years ago so I dont rember exactly what I did to make it work again, but it was a fairly simple alignment of the rods or the lever inside.
Good luck

The rear hatch on a 1995 jeep grand cherokee won't open. It will unlock but it feels like the linkage is either broken or unhooked. How can I open it to investigate?

you will need to remove the hatch trim from the inside of the truck and manually release the hatch that way, they once you have it open you can locate the problem, this will most likely be a linkage rod that has come off.

I have a 97 Jeep Grande Cherokee, my rear hatch is close but I get an message telling me that rear hatch isn't close, in which it keeps my interior lights on and drains my battery

check the sensors and clean them with steel wool. the hatch may not be close to each other so check that as well you may have to loosen them up and tighten them again but try that first
