The Insight rear hatch differs from many Honda models because there is no mechanical linkage between the hatch release on the outside of the vehicle and the actual latch. The exterior latch release is actually a switch that operates a hatch opener relay. A hatch release motor is operated by the relay. The hatch opener switch and hatch unlock (key) switch are both in series with the relay.
If the battery is discharged or disconnected, the hatch must be opened manually by use of turning the key release located in the right rear combination lamp all the way to the right.
