Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
The liftgate latch is not operating to open the liftgate. The locks engage and disengage but when you lift the handle to open the liftgate, nothing happens. It's as though the latch has become disconnected. I want to open service the latch but cannot get the liftgate opened to do so. There is no child exit latch in this car because there is a saftey release on the rear seat instead. I would like to remove the interior panel to get at the latch but that can only be removed when the liftgate is opened as well. Help please!

If the latch won't operate when you use the handle, try inserting the key, turning it, and pulling up on the liftgate while the key is in the turned position (it won't stay there, so you need to hold it turned while you raise the liftgate.

could be a bad alternator or battery, if by "the motor turns over somewhat" it sounds like it tries to turn over less and less each time you try. Even if it did start it wouldn't stay running with one of these problems.

Please remove the paddings and see if the cable is stuck into it. If so when the lock is actuated the lock could be caught into it and not allowing to disengage.
open the latch and check this link , clean and set. It will work as you can test it before closing. Hope you try. Good day.
