SOURCE: 2004 Freestar hatch will not unlock

There is a tendancy for the Triggers from the handle to Disengage internally to the Latch due to Wear and Tear, or sometimes Stressing the Mechanism when the Tailgate is Locked and someone forgot.
Gently unfasten the trim panels around the Tailgate, from the INSIDE, and if you THINK about the project, you will be able to release enough of this All in One piece enough to trip the triggers by hand, and open the Tailgate. Continue to unfasten the moulded grips, and remove the whole panel. This will then give you the access to fix the Release mechanism, mounted on the Tailgate inner body.
Regards, DT

I found this URL on internet http://www.chefseattle.com/blog/site-news/suburban-rear-liftgate-wont-unlock-how-to-fix/ It might fix your problem. Also while you have the panel off, consider doing the fix rear wiper how to tip I have posted before it fails.

If you can, you would have to get something on it to grab the release to open it. You may be able to try two pairs of plyers. I am not sure if that will work. Many people will actually tie shoe strings on the release and pull them up. It just depends how hard it is to release. If no tool will work, try the shoe strings. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Freestar SEL real hatch locked cant

Kathy, You would need a small screw driver and a foot rule or a metal strip about an inch wide and a foot long. Collected? Now, with the screw driver you must remove the plastic moulding that is there on the outer side of the drivers door glass. Just put the screw driver head in the gap between the moulding and the door frame and push upwards. Do it at a number of places and the moulding will come out. After that you must insert the foot rule between the glass pane and the gap in the door over the place where the key hole is directly below it. Push the foot rule down so that you hear a click sound. If you hear it you will notice the door lock has opened. Cheers. Now replace the moulding by placing it where it was and pressing it downwards till the whole moulding is in its place.

Electric latch on the rear Hatch door will not unlock


I guess ford was trying to make a couple more bucks by not putting key locks on all doors. Anyway, if you crawl inside and pop the small cover(about 2"x2") off the inside of the hatch where the latch is located you can reach in with a screwdriver and manually move control arms. The lever on the back/far side of assembly is in the locked position, you need to move to the opposite side left or right of it's current position, this will unlock the latch and should allow you to open the door. You mave have to pop acutor arm loose to move it. My problem ended up being the outside cover {license plate frame)seal had been damaged by a ford mechanic, that or it was defective. Water got in and damaged the the lock acuator. Had to replace entire assembly as ford does'nt offer just the acuator. Sealed the outside cover with clear silione.

Door handle came off on my ford freestar


You will have to get a new handle, and remove the inner door panel to replace it. You will also need to open the door first by pulling on the rod with a pair of pliers or moving it with a screwdriver.

2006 ford freestar driver side power window not working all of a sudden. Was working fine today and then just stopped working.


Wiggle the wiring harness going in the door between the door jam by the hinges, and toggle the switch and see if it works, normally wires brake with the door opening and closing.

Back hatch will not unlock and will not open


The above info was correct to a point , My door also would not open. I took off whole back panel and sprayed wd-40 over whole mechanism and was able to open door but if you lock it it will not reopen unless you manually move lock. So there must be a cable that comes down into latch that I manually moved. I would hope someone can verify that before I take panel off again or if a whole part must be replaced to come on here and respond and name the part or part number. It would be appreciated. The whole design has major flaws period. It should have a key latch in rear cargo door just in case . Also drivers door has no key either what were the ford engineers smoking when they came up with that. OR is it planned obsolescence !
