Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This is a common problem on pontiac aztek cars. As a first course of action please try to use screw driver to push the latch release lever to open the liftgate.

The reason is the retaining clip that holds the linkage falls out which can result to failure on opening the liftgate.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Thank you for contacting

Removing the BCM fuse can fix your issue. It is fuse number 28 under the hood fuse box. Give that a try and see if it helps.

Please get back to us if you have any further query.

Have a nice day.

2004 pontiac aztec rear hatch latch

HIt the unlatch button twice, sometimes three times. As it was explained to me
it has to be tight in the winter so it doesn't fly up in the summer. You could also try cleaning the damper rods on either side of the hatch, and make sure that the
mounts for them are still tight. It's the nature of the beast.

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.

My rear hatch will not open no matter what I do, remote, dash button or key, neither works. I checked te fuses and they are all good. What could be the problem? It worked and then I locked the doors with...

I just repaired a 2002 Aztek with a non working hatch. It was bad solonoid motors that were not releasing the is a fairly hard job to access the latches to release the hatch so you can get to the solonoids. You have toy crawl into the back of the vehicle and remove the bolts that hold the latch hooks. Once you have done this the glass top of the hatch will open. you can then use a screwdriver to reach down through the internal part of the latch and release it so you can access the bolts to disasemble the hatch to get to the solonoid motors. This is not a job a novice mechanic should atempt.It should be done by an experienced mechanic with the proper tools.
