Rear Hatch Relay

Any idea where the rear hatch relay is located on my 1996? I understand that there is a relay switch but I don't have a manual or anything that will tell me where to look for the relay. Any help will be appreciated.:confused

The relay

Is under the plastic border where the rear glass latch is located.

Fine the Solenoid.... trace the wires back and there you have it!

Does the hatch not open with any of the switches?

( One in the glove box too! )

The hatch opens fine with the console switch, but the door switch (I only have a driver side door switch) seldom opens. Sometimes it works, but mostly it doesn't. I thought I might start with the relay if it is easy to get to. The door switch doesn't appear to be easy to get to! Appears I must disassemble the door panel to get to the switch.

Not Relay then

Either the switch is BAD or there is a diode block which SUMS the different grounds..I have to look up it's location.... little PC board in a plastic container.. if your door switch works SOME of the time... betting on a funky switch!
