Hi
Its a common problem with the Sedona. Normally its caused by the hadle noreturning fully toe closed position. Try locking the car ag and then pushing the handle back with your fingers and then unlock the car then try to open the hatch again. Mines done it since I've had it ,I took it apart and greased everything but eventually it started to stick again now I just push the handle back when I close the hatch everytime and this stops it happening

cheers for the reply ,,
after driving round for a couple of hours doing messages,, i unlocked the car and there was a loud clunk from the back ,, and it was ok,, i keep it well sprayed with WD40 ,, as i do with all the locks on the car, but will have to be a bit more vigilant in the future,,

thanks again for the reply,,
have a good xmas and new yr,,

Hi. Same for me as Bruno.
I use the key tho as a lever to put the handle back in the 'closed' position.
Then lock unlock and then pull handle to open. DW40 ect... ok but pushing the handle back down does the job, mine does this quite often.
