Question about 1992 Toyota 4Runner
The linkage may have come disconnected inside the tailgate. Remove the carpet from the tailgate by firmly pulling it outward around the entire edge (it just pops on). Then remove the screws securing the metal plate over the opening, and carefully remove the plastic sheet (if you tear it, it can be replaced with simple construction grade plastic sheeting). You should be able to see the rod that connects to the handle. Verify that both the linkage for the lock and the handle are clipped in place. For comparison, look at whichever rod is connected, there should a plastic clip that rotates in place to prevent the rod from coming out of the hole. The handle will not work unless both of these rods are connected (the lock disengages the handle mechanism entirely when in the locked position).
