    I have the exact same problem with my liftgate for the 2004 Endeavor

  • argutz Sep 22, 2008

    Same problem. 3 weeks ago the liftgate and rear window starting opening up only occasionally, then the window would not close (I closed it and it would pop itself open, had to hit lock at the same moment to keep it shut). Must be an electrical problem or with the security system. My general mechanic could not isolate the problem. Dealerships are a few hours away.

    I have the same problem, lift gate always locks shut and I need to crawl in to release it. I followed instructions and opened the cover and disconnected the small wihte connector that goes to the glass opening handle micro switch. Darn, still wouldn't open. Any other suggestions?

    Is there another micro switch that controls the door latch inside the back door panel? The panel looks almost impossible to remove.

    I have the same problem.. I can;t open the glass form the inside, though. You said "and then open the glass from the inside as well" how do you do that?

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

Ok, if u do disconnect the window switch as described above and u cannot still open door, it is the latch, dealership wants 150 for new one, don't buy it, open up old one and if u notice a tiny piece of metal that makes contact with a chip(has the wires coming out of it), clean the metal with Dremel, or SOS pad, put it back in, ur good to go, to remove tailgate latch, open up tailgate, then first remove upper part of plastic molding around window, then your left with the bottom piece, their are 5 screws holding bottom piece on, then u have to remove the piece that holds the latch and licence plate lights, use 10 mm socket, there r 4 bolts, pop the ***** off, take it apart by popping the tabs, clean it and ur done, thank you and have a good day

Mitsubishi Endeavor 2004. 1. the tail gate and the tail gate glass do not open 2. the AC drains into the driver flooring instead of draining outside to the ground. Why? And where is the output drain...

The door and the glass just needs some penetrating lubricant( WD 40 ), just a few squirt will do on hinges and locks!
The drainage hose would be under the passenger side( RiGHT FRONT SiDE) glove box, look down there, u will see a black hose from the center that houses ur A/C & heater housing! Lift up ur floor covering to see it clearly. check and clean the hose it might already been clogged by moss and dirt or dislocated thru the drain holes on the flooring! Hope that helps out! Taah!

Does the 2004 mitsubishi endeavor have an MP3

The 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor does not support MP3 playback or Ipod adapter. You would have to install an aftermarket stereo in the CD slot below the HVAC (A/C) controls.

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 :)

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.

Lift gate wont open

OK, this minor collision may have shifted the actual clip and latch assembly. You may have to totally disassemble the latch assembly to release this lift gate.

Any kind of major or minor shifting of the lift gate lock latch assembly can cause misalignment that will jam this delicate precise locking mechanism.
