Where is the electrical solenoid located that releases the rear hatch on a 2006 PT Cruiser convertible?

Asked by May 17, 2012 at 10:18 AM about the 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Rear hatch won't open with key fob or button in glove box. No clicking sound when pushing either one. Was told it was probably the electrical solenoid that operates the trunk lid linkage.

You'll have to remove the plastic inner panel on the back hatch to access the locking mechanism. There is where you will find the solenoid.

It is under the center iron design in the middle of the back. 2 fingers can squeeze it to open it, as the beginning. Now when I press it, it does nothing.
