try manually unlocking with the key if it has the key port on the gate, If not you may need to pop the panel on the back and manually release the gate.

my jeep had the same problem. i had to crawl into the back through the back doors, remove the whole back pannel inside of the car, then manually unlock it. it did take quite a bit of time and work. but, mine hasnt had any problems since then, so i would suggest doing that.

If you have AAA or emergency road service they will Call a Locksmith for you and you are covered for service up to a certain dollar amount if it cost more then you will have to pay the difference.
