    same problem, handle doesn;t work as though its locked , but every now and then it will work for a couple of times, then stops. related to electric lock release? mechanism rusted?

    Tailgate on 1997 jeep grand cherokee will not open. found the remote latch works after removing the panels but when you lift the handle the rod is not moving upward to release the lock.

    1996 Grand Cherokee was rear ended breaking off latch handle. I can work a screw driver to actuate the part of the handle that remain intacked, but it won't unlatch. The electric lock mechanism and key cylinder still work. How can I expose the latch?

    removal of inner panels lets you see the workings of the latch, which is plastic, wish there was a metal one available...I work in a machine shop, If I make some and they work, anyone interested? would still involve installation.

Nope I'll round pin on a screw after so many lifts the pin wears bigger hole and slides up so when u pull handle the clasp that is around the pin on the screw is higher then before so it almost opens door but not quite what I did was from inside on the bac hatch I wedged my hand down till I could feel the screw and pin and pulled up as I shoved with shoulder outward door opened and I took off cover seen how mechanism worked shifted the pin back down and soldered it no more problems

Will a drivers side door from a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee interchange with a 1992 Jeep Cherokee Larado.Both are 2 doors.


No. they are not the same model and not even close to the same year. it should be pretty obvious that the two doors don't even look the same?

The only correct way to repair that is to remove the door and have reinforcement plates welded into the inside. Otherwise, best option is to get another one from a scrapyard.
