Is there an inside latch to open the liftgate of a 2014 Dodge Journey?

Asked by Apr 02, 2018 at 08:21 PM about the 2014 Dodge Journey

Question type: General

I haven't been able to locate a latch from inside the car to open the lift gate.  I
have never seen one without it.  Would come in handy in an emergency.

No latch on the inside on the door itself. Most vehicles have a button release under or near the dash close to the hood opener.

We couldn't find it. We've had the car for 1.5 years. We will look again. The car handbook says nothing about it and google searches came up empty. When the battery died absolutely nothing worked and we couldn't unlock the doors manually from the inside because the little stick is sunk into the door. You can't grip it. I tried to get extenders but the lock is one piece and can't be unscrewed. It's really a dangerous car if there is no latch.

No button or latch.
