Default Help! 2013 Honda fit hatch trouble

Hi all. I’m new. I just bought a 2013 Honda fit from a dealership and the hatch doesn’t work properly. They said they would fix it. They sent it to Honda and Honda said it was OK. Here is a link to a video I made of the problem. Let me know if you can help.

I have a 2018 Honda fit that is 3 months old and less than 3000 miles on it and I have the same issue. Hatch won't open and there no longer is a way to get to the mechanism from the back to release the latch. The people at honda have no idea how to approach the fix issue. 5 weeks without access to my trunk.

There's no video; YT says it's not there.

How is it that you have a 2018 Fit that is 3 months old? This is the 10th month of 2019! Do you mean you bought a USED one and it only has 3000 miles on it? Incredible! I don't know what to tell you because that's a 3rd Gen model that I haven't worked on yet.


However, the original post here was for a 2013 which is a 2nd Gen model and there IS access to the latch from inside. I have a 2012 which is identical and there is an access hatch. From 2009 through 2014 (2nd Gen) they're identical. The most common problem of it NOT unlocking (which makes it so you can't open it from the outside) is that the unlocking mechanism hasn't fully moved the lever to the unlock position. I had that problem with my 2009 and just a little "adjustment" to provide enough slack from the cable coming from the outside handle fixed it.
