Is there a way to open the trunk/lift gate without using the fob?

Asked by Jan 07, 2015 at 12:46 AM about the 2011 Dodge Journey

Question type: General

Fob doesn't unlock trunk/lift gate and I haven't found another way to open it

2 Answers


Hit the unlock button on the remote twice. Then get behind the tailgate and just above the license plate and below the Dodge logo there is either a small handle or a rubber squeeze button to release the tailgate. Its either right in the middle or off to the right a little bit.
