Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor
Posted by Anonymous on
I had the same trouble and found that I had to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is probably defective like mine. I had to release the door by going from the inside and opening a little plastic door and open the whole hatch by using the emergency lever. Then I had to unscrew the plastic panel near the glass hatch and pry it apart just enough to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is just a small connector that pulls apart. There are two connectors. One for the back wiper and then the glass hatch so make sure you disconnect the right one. This allows me to use the whole door but the glass hatch becomes useless unless you get a new switch.

Possible fuse blown, possible wire connection either loose or broken, if it seems like the door mechanismn is at fault try to remove the interior door panel to hopefully gain access to the inside workings of the hatch door and glass actautor, hit the switch to open or close and see if the interior dome light flickers if it does the current is flowing to the door actuator and the door panel will have to be removed. May have to call in a locksmith to get it opened up.

This is extremely common!
The micro-switch inside the glass hatch release is faulty, telling the door that it is partially depressed, thus shutting down opening for safety reasons.
You can verify this by opening the glass hatch (there is a access panel at the bottom of the door on the inside), removing the trim cover from behind the glass handle (two philips screws and one plastic push in fastener), then unplugging the glass handle.
Your door will now function normally, but without glass opening ability until you replace the handle.
The handle only takes a few 10mm nuts to remove and can be changed in a few minutes. It retails for around $35 from your dealer.

Hi the fault is usually the button for opening the rear glass, this can be changed easily if it is not sezed to the wiper spindle D

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.

I used a utility knife to create my own access panel in the plastic. Get huddled in the back interior with a utility knife and make a rectangular hole plenty big to get your hands through in the center and just up from the bottom a couple inches (just above the actual latch). Once you have visual access, you can watch the mechanism work and see where along the linkage your problem is. Mine was a broken plastic clip that was supposed to hold the 'L' end of metal arm into a hole. The arm was floating loose, and I re-secured it into the hole using some wire. You'll have duct tape decor (and an access panel where Honda should have put one in the first place) and hopefully a working hatch to show for it all when you're done.
