Question about Mitsubishi Endeavor

Open Question

I have a mitsibishi 2004 endeavor. That hatch keeps opening by itself and I can't keep it locked. At first I couldn't open it from the outside and now it just pops open while driving.

SOURCE: lift gate does not work in 2004 mit endeavor

This is due to the microswitch inside the glass hatch failing. It will not let you open the door because it is unsure if the glass is open or not.

Here is how to verify this:

Manually open the glass hatch.
Remove the two philips screws from the cover on the back of the handle area, and unscrew the plastic plug with the slot in it.
You should now be able to remove the cover.
You will see the harness coming off the glass handle going to a connector. Unplug this white two wire connector.
Your rear hatch should now open normally, just without glass opening.

To repair this, you will need to replace the glass hatch handle. It is a dealer-only part, and the cost is about $35.

To replace it, simply remove the 2 10mm nuts behind it (visible with the cover off that you just removed) and replace the handle and plug it back in.
Now all functions will work.

If you have any questions, just ask :)

SOURCE: rear hatch does not lock

You need to take the trim panel off the rear hatch,look inside ,see if the linkage is off on the key tumbler,but it sounds like you need a new tumbler. With the trim panel off take the tumbler out.A GM dealer will have the tumbler but it will come with a different key.

SOURCE: Power Door Locks - 1996 Honda Accord Wagon - Rear Hatch

I used a utility knife to create my own access panel in the plastic. Get huddled in the back interior with a utility knife and make a rectangular hole plenty big to get your hands through in the center and just up from the bottom a couple inches (just above the actual latch). Once you have visual access, you can watch the mechanism work and see where along the linkage your problem is. Mine was a broken plastic clip that was supposed to hold the 'L' end of metal arm into a hole. The arm was floating loose, and I re-secured it into the hole using some wire. You'll have duct tape decor (and an access panel where Honda should have put one in the first place) and hopefully a working hatch to show for it all when you're done.

My rear hatch want open from the outside nor will the glass open. I had it checked and they said it wasn't getting power to the door but didn't know what the problem was.


I had the same trouble and found that I had to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is probably defective like mine. I had to release the door by going from the inside and opening a little plastic door and open the whole hatch by using the emergency lever. Then I had to unscrew the plastic panel near the glass hatch and pry it apart just enough to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is just a small connector that pulls apart. There are two connectors. One for the back wiper and then the glass hatch so make sure you disconnect the right one. This allows me to use the whole door but the glass hatch becomes useless unless you get a new switch.

Rear door wont open-hatch or window - can open hatch with inside release


Sometimes there is a safety sensor that does not allow it to open if the vehicle is in gear. This sensor may be faulty but most likely not the problem. Remove the inner panel on the back hatch and inspect the linkages from the outside handles to the releases inside the door for the glass and hatch. These have most likely came loose from the latches they operate

2003 Nissan Murano hatch back door won't unlock or open. Glitchy for a long time, always opened eventually with a ritual of locking/unlocking using the remote/lock on the door, etc. Upon opening,...


I have a 2004 Murano. I opened the small hatch and with a screw driver and someone on the outside managed to open the hatch. The problem appears to be bent pieces inside. After straightening them out and using a good silicon spray, mine works again. It should be lubricated quite frequently.

I cant open the glass on my back hatch any suggestions?


The glass hatch release handles fail all the time on these models (which is why the system was eliminated in 2009 models).

The glass hatch handle is $32 list from the dealer.

Removal and replacement requires a philips screwdriver and a 10mm socket and ratchet with extension.

Open the glass hatch by manually activating it through the access hole on the inside of the tailgate (small square panel covering it)

Remove the two philips screws and the one pop fastener holding the plastic trim on the back of the glass hatch handle area.

Remove the two 10mm nuts holding the handle on, unplug the wire and remove, noting the routing of the wiring on removal.

Reassemble in opposite order, being sure to route the wiring correctly.

Describe your my Mitsubishi endeavor 2004 back door doesn't open Problem


Does this not open from inside or outside or both.
If it opens from the inside and not the outside look at the door opening near the latch. Look for the small lever "child-lock" just move the lever in the oposite direction.
If the door doesn't open from inside or outside I would ask has anyone try to unlock the car using a "slim-jim" if so they may have caused the lock rod to come off the latch on the inside. You'll need to remove the door trim panel and see the the rod has come off. With any luck it will just pop back on if the nothing is broken.

Hatch problem


The glass did close and neither the glass or rear hatch would open. It did turn out to be the lower hatch switch which I had replaced.
Thanks for the follow up.

Today is your lucky day. Get inside of your vehicle to open the lift gate and then open the glass from the inside as well . From the outside of the vehicle with the gate down and the glass open you will see the cover on the glass held in place by two screws. Remove this cover to expose the micro switch for the glass opening handle. You will see a small white connector and with a little patience you can remove this connector. If the glass switch is bad your hatch will now open and your glass should close without having to lock the locks. The switch is a dealer item and goes for around $50 and a bit more dissassembly of window to replace switch/Handle. Happened to me and cost 100 just for them to tell me what was wrong. I used a stick to poke the safty latch for almost two yrs
