Electric latch on the rear Hatch door will not unlock


I guess ford was trying to make a couple more bucks by not putting key locks on all doors. Anyway, if you crawl inside and pop the small cover(about 2"x2") off the inside of the hatch where the latch is located you can reach in with a screwdriver and manually move control arms. The lever on the back/far side of assembly is in the locked position, you need to move to the opposite side left or right of it's current position, this will unlock the latch and should allow you to open the door. You mave have to pop acutor arm loose to move it. My problem ended up being the outside cover {license plate frame)seal had been damaged by a ford mechanic, that or it was defective. Water got in and damaged the the lock acuator. Had to replace entire assembly as ford does'nt offer just the acuator. Sealed the outside cover with clear silione.

2004 Chevy Trailblazer - Randomly the liftgate does not unlock. Have to crawl in the back and manually release the lock through the small access hole. Doesn't seem to matter how many times I cycle through...


That's one of those thing you will need to look at. check the electric solenoid to make sure it has a good ground and "hot" connection. Also make sure that the lock mechanism is operating freely and not binding.
