The rear hatch of the Chevy Equinox is an integrated door, as the glass does not open separately from the hatch. Some owners may wonder how to unlock the rear hatch because it does not have a key hole, nor is there a specific switch to unlock the rear hatch. According to the owner's manual, you can unlock the rear hatch using the keyless entry remote or the power door lock control panel.
Grab your keyless entry remote and step to the Equinox's rear hatch.
Push the "Unlock" button on the keyless entry remote twice quickly. This unlocks the rear hatch.
Grasp the rear hatch's handle and pull it outward to open the rear hatch.
Tips & Warnings
