    Mine is the same way the rear only opens with the key fob so far... But, I am thinking of pulling and maybe deleting the rear plastic panel so while it is off I will take a look to see if I can install some sort of inside latch if possible..

    I had the panel off recently to replace the handle to open the gate. Simple 2 wires if I remember. I guess I’ll look into seeing if there’s a way to tap into the harness and make the gate work from outside or inside with another switch.

    Keep all posted hopefully shortly.

    It looks like two wires going to the lock but, there are a few more wires that attach to the back also. I did not have time today to probe the wires to see what would work but it does look like it should be pretty simple to do.. I was busy putting in insulation in the rear panel today.. But I almost did it... lol I guess I will have to wait til next time I am in there...

    Here is the panel after adding insulation to it I also added insulation in the hatch too.. This should reduce a lot of the cold or heat coming in the rear hatch.

    One of our easy camping trip runs last year. 250 miles off pavement in my Tahoe.
