SOURCE: Back hatch wont open on 96 Jeep GC

unfortunately, the only way I know of would be to destroy the inner panel (cheaper than a back door) and get to the lock mechanism from there. I assume you have tried just about everything else at this point.
You can easily locate a used panel in a scrap yard.
Good luck!!

Turn on the rear window wiper . Try to get the wiper arm off the glass. There is a switch that will not let the window operate if the wiper is on the glass.

SOURCE: hatch-back door will not open

I can say I have had the same problem, only the back doors and the rear hatch/glass won't open using keyless remote from them freezing this Winter.  The front two driver/passenger doors will unlock with keyless remote but none of the rear doors, hatch or glass.  Since I had to replace the stoplight bulbs in the rear with one not working and I don't need a ticket on Memorial Day weekend (need to replace 2 at the same time is wise according to any good mechanic), I had to get the rear hatch open to get to the lamp assembly and replace the bulbs.  My thinking was that since my two front locks were opening but no others and my keyless remotes are working, it has to be a fuse or relay that is not working!  So, I talked with a NAPA rep and he said the "Day running lights" relay can be a temporary fix to get the rear locks open to replace the bulbs.  I looked up in the owners manual where both relay's are located and removed the "Locked" relay and "Day running lights" relay and put the "Day running lights" into the same slot where the "Locked" relay was not operating and it worked!  I got the doors unlocked and replaced my stoplight bubs replaced.  Now, I have a new problem, my Tahoe won't start!!  I'm assuming the relay wasn't supposed to stay in the wrong slot when operating the vehicle because I started the truck, and it started and died-started and died-same and again.  I think the wrong fuse can be used to fix another problem like a fuse.  But, a fuse you can leave in and deal with one operation in the vehicle not working until you can replace the fuse later when you purchase it.  But, not a relay!  Now, I think the confused electronics cause another component (possibly the fuel pump relay) to burn out with the wrong relay in place of another when the vehicle operates.  I should have known but I was so glad to get the doors open after two months and it being Memorial Day weekend.  Now I have to find out what else is wrong so don't make that mistake to avoid the same predicament.  Better to get the relay ordered and replaced than to have this happen to you.

SOURCE: Trunk wont open where is emergency switch inside trunk

I had the same problem as you. Take out the back seat and there is a large access hole to the interior. There are two bolts that are fairly easy to get to. Remove them and the truck latch is removed from the lid and trunk will open.

SOURCE: rear hatch wont open 2003 chevy blazer 4x4

I too had an issue with my rear hatch. My father in law cut a huge hole in the plastic only to find out there is a manual operation hole behind one of the carpeted panels in the hatch. You simply move the latch with pliers.

I have a 2008 Pontiac Torrent. The back hatch will not open with remote, there is no key entry.


On the inside of the liftgate on the bottom there's a little circle you pop off. Inside the circle there's a little silver lever, if you push on it with a screwdriver or something, and push the liftgate open at the same time, you can manually open it that way.

Radio wont show display...yet radio works...a/c isnt blowing cold air....freon is full..and in the same area button to release rear hatch isnt opening it...nor is the key !!!


Radio is an internal problem. A/C, have your mechanic friend check the high and low pressures, along with the outside temperature when he checked it. Repost, I'll tell you what's wrong. And the hatch, there is a rod that unlocks it, it has came loose in the hatch. You have to climb in back and pop off the top bezel for the hatch. Then remove the screws on each side of the bottom bezel. Start popping it out, enough to reach down and open the hatch. After it is open, remove the screws at the handle on the bottom and finish popping it off. Replace the plastic tab that has broken for the rod. I suggest replacing all of them.

2008 pontiac torrent liftgate wont open


First does it work manually? If it does than it must be checked electrically within the rear hatch behind the panel. You cold jump the switch but be careful not to short out the body control module.

Rear hatch wont open on a 2010 dodge caliber


There is no lever or any key hole it is a fully electric operated power latch. As to the cause the park brake must be engaged and the car in park gear position before the hatch will open, is it?

Have a 2006 chevy hhr LT back hatch door wont lock or unlock.All other doors do with both key and inside lock.Hatch wont budge?


There is a manual release on the inside of the hatch door.
Somewhere in the center of the door under an oval cover plate you can open it with a screwdriver.

My rear hatch will not open with key, or remote control or the button used to pop open the rear hatch.


Thanks for using FixYa and welcome to the site. There is usually a cable that connects from the button to the latch. It may be broke. You may be able to get another key made at a dealership or by calling a locksmith.
