How to open the hatch

Hi guys, I am wondering if anyone had this issue that that have to open the hatch the is locked and the battery is
dead. I am hoping to find a manual way to release the lock and open the hatch. I didn't find any key slot in my jeep kk to put the key in and turn.

hey dude there is a key entrance on your driver side door right on the out side, incase you have a dead battery or a failed remote key entrance you can access your car by using the key to open it manually, Jeep is not that dump to make a car without manual key access and I never seen such before and till now, other wise if you have a case of a dead battery and there is no manual access say RIP to your car.

So how does this ^^^ help OP open the hatch with a dead battery???

OP -
you'll need to hook up jumper cables or a new battery to get power to your system to open the rear hatch if it's locked.

My 08 has a manual release on the inside of the hatch, just above the latch assy. It's a half moon shaped plastic insert, pry out the top and pull to release.

Thank you BillyP, open the half moon plastic, and inserted screwdriver and twisted it to the right. That unlocked the hatch.
