SOURCE: the rear hatch door won't open either with the

After a while, the mechanism (actuator) that unlocks and releases the rear glass hatch in your Blazer or Jimmy will eventually burn out. when it does, there is really no way to open the glass and lower the tailgate.
The only way to replace the burnt out actuator is to open the tailgate which you can't because the actuator is burnt out.

I've read stories that even the dealers don't know what to do, some have even cut up the back panel to reach the so-called manuel release. Others said they pulled back the glued on carpet to search for it also. 

Well if you don't want to hack up the tailgate panel or rip out your carpet, here's the easy way to open the glass:

You just pull back the interior tailgate panel right above the bump in the middle where the latch is. There are no screws or bolts in that area, you can safely pull it back about 2 inches. Then you'll have to stuck your finger in and push down the release bar.

When you get your finger back there, you should be able to feel for the part that need to be pushed down. When that part is pushed down, the glass has been unlocked.

When you get your finger back there, you should be able to feel for the part that need to be pushed down. When that part is pushed down, the glass has been unlocked.

Good luck and hope this helps, The actuator that needs to be replaced costs $58 from the dealer.

You'll have to climb in the back and remove the interior trim panel. Once it is removed you can get to the latch and release it.

How to get rear hatch open on 2004 Kia Sorento the latch won't release and is stuck closed


you will have to remove the panel from inside the car and release the catch from there. Probably the rod has fallen off and the retaining clip has broken.

How do you open the back door (no manual)


Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.

It could be a bad rear hatch latch actuator. if you can hear it working possibly a cable or rod popped off.

06 Sorento, passanger front door wont unlock.. Do we have to take the whole door panel off? is it maybe the motor ? Tryed to unlock with remote and manual.. It just wont open.


I take it that this is the only door that does not work. This being the case does the door sound as if the electric motor is working inside the door? When you try to unlock with the key does the key turn and nothing happens? If this be the case then a plastic clip that joins the key lock arm and the lockmechanism is likly to be broken requiring trim removall and replacing parts not very expensive but hard to get out. I find removing four bolts holding seat in position and removing the seat is the easy way
