It started just by not locking with the remote, the 4 doors would be locked but you could still open the hatch, then one day I just couldn't open it again, I don't know what to do because at the dealer they'll charge me $200 just to take a look at it, and God knows how much would be for the repair, I mean you would think that it's covered by the guarantee right! !!! Please help
My rear lift hatch won't open with the automatic unlock and I can't find a key slot. The dealer says it will cost $466 to fix. It is a 2007 model and this happened a couple of years ago.
