Rear tailgate will not unlock


You will need to detrim the tailgate and manually access the latch mechanism and release the tailgate and find out the cause of the fault.

Land rover discovery tailgate loack can only be opened using the key


The lock actuator motor is most likely sticking due to corrosion, open up the tailgate and replace the electric power lock actuator motor. If you need instructions on how to access the inside parts you can get them here for small subscription fee.

How do I remove the tailgate trim from 1998 durango? My tailgate will not open, not with a key, or automatic lock it just won't open. Thinking it needs a new actuator, but i can't access it to...


If you can get the hatch unlocked and opened, you can remove the interior panel and unplug the factory powered door lock. This will not do anything to your security systems. The only down fall is it will only open with the key. If the hatch doesn't work with the key either, I would say you need a new lock assembly. I have shaved my door handles and have removed the power door lock, so I know it will work just fine ( I depend solely on my shave door handle system and my security system (Viper) to access my truck) - from Dakota-Durango.com Lots of info there..I agree with losing the power opening option if you have it...I am renewing a 98 Durango and its keys all the way...needed new lift struts for the rear hatch tho..(that thing is very heavy...I HAD to have help installing the new struts, I had held it up with my skull to remove the worn ones....definitely use E-Bay for parts search and full synth oil w/Lucas synth additive will make the motor happy.Hope things work out....

The rear tailgate door latch on my 2002 Jeep Liberty will not release to allow the door to open when the handle is pulled. You can hear the solinoid activate but door doesn't open.


Hello. I can assist you. Most likely, your door latch is broken and will need to be replaced. Historically these were metal and rusted due to exposure, soooooo now they are plastic and after a few hundred uses, they break. You can purchase the tailgate handle and replace it yourself but my recommendation is to let the shop do it as it can be a little tricky and often the linkage rods also need to be cleaned and lubricated. The total cost of this repair is generally about $75. Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Can't open tailgait on 2002 Mitsubishi Montero.


I have the same problem with a 2001 Mitusbishi Montero XLS. Door handle is stuck and feels mushy when trying to open it. Is there a safety from the inside panel to open the cargo door? At this point, until its repaired, all I want to do is to be able to release the lock and open the door.

1996 Isuzu Rodeo stuck tail gate


Remove the interior trim panel which will not be easy since the gate is up ---- you can then access the lock mechanism and will probably find a bent linkage rod or a broken plastic retainer clip.
