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.

    The reason it is not getting power is because if the glass hatch switch is bad it sends a signal back telling the computer that it is open and disables the power so you cant open the whole door. That is what I read somewhere online.

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.

SOURCE: My rear hatch and glass hatch will not open from the outside.

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.

SOURCE: handle on rear hatch door broke off.how can i open hatch door until i can get a new handle?

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.

SOURCE: Power Door Locks - 1996 Honda Accord Wagon - Rear Hatch

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.

Toyota Kluger 2007/8 glass hatch opens up when I turn the ignition key to start the engine. Sometimes also when open the car with the remote button.


Hi There,
I wish I could help you, but maybe I can do the next best thing. Turns out lots of other Toyota owners have experienced your problem. They write about it on this forum:
http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/122-2nd-generation-2008-2013/405421-rear-hatch-opens-when-started.html
So I think if you keep an eye on this forum, someone will come up with a solution. If it was me, (since I have replaced power window guts, I would take the door apart, get some electrical tape and look for a possible short.

I hope this helps you!

How do I get my rear hatch door open,when you can't open it from the outside?


You can get it open in two ways: By using your key fob and remotely opening latch or by pulling inside panel on rear hatch and manually pulling lever to get latch to release. Most times when you cant get rear hatch to open normally is because cable from outside release handle to latch broke. Have cable and release mechanism inspected and replace worn or broken parts as needed.

How to open the glass on the rear door of a 2005 nissan pathfinder


Even the manual is vague here. You need to look under the chrome trim where the main hatch lever is. Off to the far right is a handle which, if you get down and look, appears to be a vent or something. Put your fingers in and pull up, this will release the hatch... then pull up on the small handle on the hatch itself.

I can not get the tailgate to open in 2003 chevy blazer 2dr? It gets power to it because i can hear it when i push the button?


Inside the rear tail gate hatch should be a small access panel. Remove the access panel so you can manually open the rear hatch by grabbing the small metal rod linkage. They put this access panel so if the door motor actuator goes bad you can still open the rear hatch. After you open the rear hatch manually by the linkage rod. Remove the entire inside hatch trim panel so you can see all the inner workings of it and self diagnos. It sound like the electric door motor actuator has gone bad. This is pretty common for any GM product. Hope this hopes.

Rear door wont open-hatch or window - can open hatch with inside release


Sometimes there is a safety sensor that does not allow it to open if the vehicle is in gear. This sensor may be faulty but most likely not the problem. Remove the inner panel on the back hatch and inspect the linkages from the outside handles to the releases inside the door for the glass and hatch. These have most likely came loose from the latches they operate

Rear windshield wiper connection


You need to open the rear glass from the rear hatch. Look inside where the glass latches to the rear hatch. There is a Phillips head screw that connects the rear inner plastic panel to the rear hatch, remove this screw. Now, in the strap that you use to pull the rear hatch down, there is a torques head screw, that holds this strap to the rear hatch, you need to remove this screw.
Start at one of the outer corners of the inner plastic panel and pull the panel away from the hatch. You will see the upper wiper motor in the right hand corner of the hatch. ther is one connector that is easy to see, you have to pull up on a plastic clip to remove this connector. Look for the rubber hose for the windshield washer fluid, it may be cracked or fallen off the plastic nozzle to the outside of the rear door.

Please the hose back on or replace the hose if it's cracked or damaged by the wiper motor. To install just follow the procedure in revers.
Good luck and hope i made some sense. Keep me posted, be glad to help out.
