On the inside(backside of the hatch), there is a little cover that pops off with a screwdriver, and it has a lever inside that should open the hatch manually.
Thanks but the remote won't open the rear hatch. So I'm thinking it's the relay swithc or something like that.
Ya it will probably have to be fixed but at least you can open it and check.
Do you mean you want to be open the rear hatch using your keyfob like a power lift gate?
No the only way the rear opens is from the inside using the hand lever. The button on the door and the remote on the key chain won't open the hatch. So I thinking it's the motor or sensor. Can anyone help or point me in the direction to buy one??
Remote on the key chain? Do 45s have a button on the fob that opens the rear hatch?
Ok, so I have 90,000 miles on my FX now and my lift gate is not unlocking. I'm thinking the motor went out.
Is this what I need:
also my front passenger door is not unlocking. I guess the solenoid is out also? does anyone have the link from Infinitsparts.com? I can't seem to find it.

If the actuator is going bad then it can be sporadic. But the cig thing I'm not sure, perhaps the navi unit is drawing too much power from the same line? Where do you plug in the navi?
im having the same issues as 909fx... rear hatch release button on the outside works every now and then, is it the motor or actuator or both? also my cig lighter rear seats does not work (fuse is ok)

by unlocking the front passenger door, do you using the key? i unlock all using my keyfob and still cannot release the hatch.
my fuse box is under the left driver side near the pedals... im guessing all fuses are there?
im trying to determine if all i need to replace is the motor?
