I press the lock on my remote control and all 4 doors and the rear hatch lock. I press unlock, and 8 out of 10 times the doors and the rear hatch unlock. The other 2 times, the doors unlock but the rear hatch remains locked. And then you can press 'unlock' all you want, and the hatch stays locked. When it eventually does unlock, it may not have the issue again for a week.

Bummer when you're trying to put the groceries in the car, or trying to unload on vacation. I had to unload the car up in Canada over the back seat - not fun! :wall:

Anyone else experience this? Diagnosis? Repair suggestions?

I'll take a look at it the next time we stop by.


Do you hear it trying to unlock, or is it silent until it unlocks?

If you hear clicking each time, the mechanism probably just needs to be lubricated.
