You will need to take off the inside cover and look and see if there is an obstruction keep it from moving. A lot of the time the lock assembly just needs to be lubed with a lube spray.

SOURCE: install a altenator for a 2006 jeep commander

I would rate this a 5 in difficulty. If you have a metric socket set, basic hand tools and a supertine belt tool it's fairly easy repair. You can rent a surpentine belt tool at Autozone.

Disconnect the battery
remove the cowling
remove the supertine belt from the altenator pully
disconnect the red wire on the back of the altenator
disconnect the harness plug from the altenator
remove the bolts holding the altenator to the mounting brackets.
Reverse the process with the new altenator and it it's done.
Make sure your battery is charged before you start the engine a low battery can cause damage to your new altenator.

If it's not unlocking, The only way o get it open is pop off the trim piece that goes around the window. On the bottom panel there might be two screws to remove on each side. If not then it will pop off to a point, because there are screws on the bottom you can't access. Pull it back and reach down and find the rods that go to the latch. usualy the one that is horizontal is the one that unlocks the hatch. move it left or right to unlock it, try the handle to see if it opens. If it doesn't reach again and open it from the other rod. Pull up on it. Good luck

Testimonial: "Perfect. Could not reach the cables because of a plastic housing, but the process of disconnecting and reconnecting the cables solved the problem."

Endgate/Liftgate
Once the vehicle doors have been unlocked, the endgate/liftgate can be opened by using the handle mounted to the exterior of the gate. The endgate/liftgate can be locked or unlocked by operating either one of the front door lock switches, or by pressing the Lock/Unlock button on the key fob.

2009 hhr hatch wouldn't lock so I removed #11 fuse and I found info on it in thr forum. But without the #11 fuse it won't unlock at all. Battery is good. Has anyone had the same issue?


Rear Liftgate Release
The liftgate can be released by operating the liftgate release switch. The gear selector may be in any position, but the doors must be unlocked and the vehicle must be stationary for the liftgate to release.
Pressing the liftgate release switch closes a contact providing a ground for the liftgate release switch signal circuit. The body control module (BCM) will detect the voltage drop and command a ground to be supplied to the liftgate release relay control circuit thus energizing the L/GATE RELSE relay which provides voltage to the liftgate latch. When the doors are locked, the BCM will disable the liftgate release system by ignoring the liftgate release switch input command and not providing a ground for the L/GATE RELSE relay.

Fuse # 10 - 20 amp supply's B+ voltage to the L/GATE RELSE relay located in the under hood fuse/relay box.
The BCM controls this relay from input from lift gate release switch.

Fuse #11 is 11
Empty

Liftgate emergency release cannot be found


2/3 of the way down this page with pictures

http://www.wjjeeps.com/liftgate.htm

All WJs feature an emergency unlock/lock switch lever for the liftgate. Should the liftgate become locked and unable to be opened due to a switch or circuit failure, a manual unlock/lock lever is accessible behind a small panel on the interior trim panel. As shown in the photos above, the lever can be moved up or down to unlock or lock the liftgate door.

The battery in my 2006 pontiac vibe went dead. I recharged it; however, the setting for the door locks changed. It now unlocks automatically when I turn the car off instead of when I put the car in park. I...


The 2006 Vibe no longer has that feature. It was discontinued after 2005. I have the 2005 so I know how to change it. If your 2006 is able to change then here are the directions from my 2005.
Programmable Automatic
Door Locks
If you have an automatic transaxle, your vehicle is equipped with an auto door lock/unlock feature which enables you to program your power door locks.
Your vehicle left the factory programmed to Mode 4.
The following is a list of the available programming options:
Mode 1: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. There is no automatic door unlocking.
Mode 2: No automatic door locking or unlocking.
Mode 3: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the shift lever is moved to PARK (P) with the ignition on.
Mode 4: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the ignition switch is turned from ON to ACC or to LOCK.
To change the mode you are in, do the following:
1. Set the interior lamp control dial to the door position.
See Interior Lamps Control on page 3-16.
2. Move the shift lever into PARK (P) and close all doors and liftgate.
3. Turn the ignition to ON.
4. Within five seconds after the ignition is turned to ON, press and hold the power door lock switch in
the lock position for about five seconds.
5. The interior lamp will flash to indicate that the mode has been changed. For example, if the lamp flashes once, the function has been changed to Mode 1.
If the battery is disconnected or run down, the mode is changed to the initial mode which is Mode 4.

Break kight burned out


Open the liftgat and you should see the screws on the side of the lamp. Unscrew then and pull the lamp away from the vehicle. There should be sockets in the tailamp that screw in and out about the size on a half dollar. Pull this out and pull the bulb out straight and replace by pushing in a new bulb. Follow these directions backwards to replace the lamp. Hope this helps.
