Most times after you take it apart you will find that the linkage rod between the handle and the latch mechanism has fallen off, or the latch has rusted.
To get in there, the easiest way is to cut a three or four inch hole about nine inches from the bottom and just to the drivers side of center in the inner panel. Once you do that, you can see inside to pull up on the linkage rod. Inner panels are generally easy to find in local scrapyards and are not expensive. If the rod has fallen out of the clip, I generally squeeze some epoxy putty into the clip around the rod to hold it better.
There is a second way in but it requires some precision drilling.

How do you know for sure the tailgate is unlocked? Does it unlock with a remote? Electrical pushbutton? or a handle?

I have a 1998 Jeep cherokee sport. Was driving today and it died. Now there is no spark and no power to fuel pump. Changed fuel pump today and it won't run. Recently replaced oxygen sensors too


U need to check the crankshaft position sensor. The fuel pump will only have power for 2 seconds I till it sees a crank signal. It' controls the asd relay which turns on your spark and fuel

Rear Hatch will not open on my 95 Jeep Cherokee sport


You need to go to a locksmith and purchase a new lock cylinder. Remove the retainer clip from the old cylinder from the inside of the hatch.

Pull the battery cables, hold them together for 3-5 minutes, this resets the cpu in the car. That should fix it.

Auto door locks 92 sport inline six


Sounds like you have a couple of problems:

1. Door locks will most likely be a bad fuse. Check all of your fuses under your dash with a 12V test light. test both sides of fuse to be sure.

2. Rear hatch will unlock using a key with or without power. Spray some graphite spray into the key hole to lube it up and try again. WD-40 works but it is not as good. When it's cold, vehicle locks will be harder to open and require extra lubrication.
