power liftgate stuck closed
110 miles from home, in a retail parking lot, can't get the liftgate to open;
evic shows liftgate open but it is stuck shut. Checked manual; Says if liftgate stuck (must be common problem) there is a access panel on inside of liftgate. i locate a half moonshaped panel , bottom center. Need a screwdriver
to pry it open. Got it open, did not readily see how to release the latch as space is stuffed with insulation, i did not feel like ripping out the insulation.
back outside, playing around with the fob got the glass to open, shut it down tight and then noticed the evic alarm gone. now liftgate opened ok using the fob. Opened and closed it a couple of times during the rest of the afternoon and drove home. Works ok now. So, still got find out how to open it manually from the access panel. Anyone know?
