My tailgate sensor light wont go off. I have opened and closed my tailgate and tailgate window but the warning light will not go off which is cause all the dome lights to stay on in the jeep. please help


Even if the tailgate locks properly there may be something blocking the light switch. Happened to me after carting firewood and the trunk had lots of wood chips and sawdust. I cleaned it out with a paint brush and vacuum and the light was fine - but it did take a couple of tries!.

Tailgate doesn't open


the most likely failure is the tailgate lock actuator, the tailgate will have to be taken apart from inside (very difficult)

2000 cherokee tailgate will not open, how do you open it?


Did You open the back window first? when the window is open You should be able to turn the key lock. If not check to make shure Your power locks are unlocked. If that all fails then it is jammed. Take it to a car repair shop. They will open it for You. Good luck.

Can't get the tailgate open on my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee


I had the same problem. I was able to get the back window open.
I took the the 4 screws off that are on top of the inside of the door (where the tailgate window latch is).
Got a metal coat hanger. straightened it and made a hook at one end.
carefully pushed the plastic part of the tailgate towards the inside
slid the coat hanger straight down (to the level of the tailgate key/handle) to catch the door latch from the inside and pulled up.
that will get the tailgate open.
then you need to take the rest of the screws out of the lower part of the tailgate to get at the latch assembly. Carefully take the plastic off.
(you will need to take the nice black insulation stuff off the metal part of the door carefully so you can replace it and tape it up if necessary after fixing the latch.)
peel the insulation off the metal part of the door, you will see the assembly rod has come off the latch and will need putting back in place and a little sqweeze to stay on.
really bad design I guess, but since I fixed it at 140000, I haven't had any trouble with it at 166000.

The tailgate on my 1994 grand cherokee won't open


I had the same problem on my 94 grand cherokee! Try pushing in hard near the latch on the tailgate on the outside then pulling it open. I tried everything before stumbling on to this solution!! Lube up the latch and you should be fine.
