I had the same problem and i had to take it to a body shop to fix it. a piece of the lock fell off and we had to buy a new lock to fix it. the emergency release would not even open it. if you don't want to take it to the shop, order the lock from your parts dealer and when you get it you have to get in to the hatch some how. the body shop guys broke the interior panel to get in. they repaired the panel with a mesh strip and epoxy. after the replaced the lock. i can't tell you how the lock goes on. i hope this helps.

if you haven't figured it out yet ,you pull off the rear headliner center plastic piece,it just pulls down ,then remove the 2 puch pins on rear of headliner, then pull out light fixture and replace bulb
Open the hatch, prop the hatch up, remove the gas struts, get a couple of people to hold the hatch, and unbolt the hinges. I strongly suggest marking the hinge positions with pencil or crayon to make aligning the hatch on re-installation easier.
I had the same problem. There are screws you can remove, some are hidden in the carpet( feel for the holes) of the rear panel, the rest are snaps. I removed as much as I could, including the side plastic, and pulled the panel away under the bottom of the window enough to stick my arm down there to reach the release rod, gave it a pull and the door popped open. you will need to wear a long sleeve shirt(thin material) to keep from getting cut on the sharp plastic. have a flashlight and a friend handy. have the friend on the outside lifting the lever while you use the flashlight to see the rod that opens the door, about 3 inches to the right of center ( looking at it from inside the car). reach down and feel for the rod and pull up. IN my case the screws that secured the lated to the door had come loose, throwing the adjustment for the pull rod out of wack. When you get the door open you can remove the rest of the screws on the rear panel and do a complete repair.
ok, if the key won't open this then the lock is jammed and if you don't want to damage anything, I know I wouldn't, I would take it to a mechanic. The jammed may have been what killed your battery if the valet trunk open was not working it may have been shorted out. There is a way to jump vehicles with the battery in the trunk like that but I am not familiar with it and if the buttin doesn't work to release the trunk it would do you no good anyway. most likely you are looking at replacing teh truck locking mechanism.
There is a small electric motor on the transfer case that shifts in and out of 4WD. Before you take it off, try resetting the switch. There is a relay in the driver side rear in front of the rear washer fluid reservoir. Hold the white button down for about 10 sec. I am pretty sure it flashes. If that does not work, pull off the electric motor and test it with 12v power. Most of the time they jump past where they are supposed to be. If you reverse the polarity, the motor will turn in reverse.
hello ,If its the rear hach handle you are talking it is due to rust build up on the spring behind the handle. The only way to fix is to get a new handle it will come with the spring and all. Make sure if you do get this handle and you get it painted to match your paint that the body shop does not take it apart to paint cause it is really hard to get the spring back in and thay may brake it on you.
