Rear Hatch Lock

Hey Guys, i did a search and didn't find what i was looking for..2004 FX35 and the rear hatch wont open, i tried everything, i pulled the rear cover off and jumped the motor, it turns all the way one way and same for the other way..but still wont open, when i hit the outside button it turns the motor like 1/8 of the way then after a few seconds it turns matter what i try i cant get it open. So my question, is there a lock actuator back there that locks the door and might be stopping i from opening? i cant even do anything with emergency opener. I have a ALLDATA account and i cant even find anything on there...its making me mad and any help would be awesome.

Re: Rear Hatch Lock

In your search did you read about that little lever thats in that inside cover plate? Thats a manual release lever. Pull that to manually open the hatch. Once open, check for aything that may have got caught in there. It did it to me when i closed a thin blanket in there once.
