You don't say if that took care of your problem or not... Did the above fix your liftgate? If it did, great. If not then 1. does the liftgate window open? If it does, when you use the remote to lock and unlock the car, do you hear the tailgate lock energize? If it is unlocking, then put your butt up against the license and push in and then try to unlock it with the handle. You may have gotten some trash in the lock catch.

I suspect the door lock actuator needs to be replaced. The same thing happens to the side doors eventually. The rear hatch actuator is removed on You Tube but the replacement part is hard to find.
