I recently bought an 08 with the touchpad & I was told not to worry about it "they never go out". What happened to yours ? Are you able to get the hatch open ok ?

I had to have mine replaced. Mechanic said there was a crack in the membrane that covered the sitch which allowed water to get in and it would no longer work. They had to replace the entire rear emblem which encompasses the touch pad ( you think they would make that touch pad itself replaceable). Part was $150, labor only $35.

Nothing is cheap these days! The cost of labor wasn't bad, apparently it's not that hard to replace. Were you able to open your hatch ok ? The thought occured to me that it would be almost impossible to get it open unless there is a trick to it.

I had to open it with the key in the back. Glad it had this, my 03 did not. It is all fixed now and works great.

My '05 never did work right. Finally it got to where it would unlock at any time. Hit the clicker to unlock the doors & trunk would unlock. Put it in gear & go a little bit & it would unlock. I took the back panel off & took the wire off the motor and put the panel back on. Open the trunk with the key. Problem solved.

Same thing happened to my wife's 05. This is what I did:

Scroll about half way down. I just added a $0.99 switch in place of the touchpad. Been working great for over a year.

Thumbs down Re: rear hatch touch pad '07 GT

I have yet for someone to be able to answer my question. My 08 Cruiser does not have a key slot on the trunk. The trunk must be opened by using the touchpad. Apparently Chrysler did away with the key business on the trunk lid in 08. If my trunk is closed & the touchpad does not work, how can I get the trunk opened ? It would be the same as you trying to open your trunk without a key & the touchpad doesn't work. Sounds like up an "the creek thing" !
