Having problems with your 1998 Jeep Cherokee ?
Rear door lock has jammed open with the door in the open position, any thoughts on what to do to the door lock, have tried lubricants with no success. John Knight
My Cherokee has this problem when weather is hot, the back door just won't open either with the key nor with the electronic unlock, but I figured a way to do it, press down on the piece that holds the back license plate lights while opening the door with your hand, it works for me.
You will have to remove the interior door panels first to see if the connecting rods are in place properly. Also remove the latch and see if the is any corrosion or damage to it.
