Try to remove interior trim (plastic) on rear door panel from inside the vehicle to access metal access panel and get to door actuator rods to get door open for further repair.

This is extremely common!
The micro-switch inside the glass hatch release is faulty, telling the door that it is partially depressed, thus shutting down opening for safety reasons.
You can verify this by opening the glass hatch (there is a access panel at the bottom of the door on the inside), removing the trim cover from behind the glass handle (two philips screws and one plastic push in fastener), then unplugging the glass handle.
Your door will now function normally, but without glass opening ability until you replace the handle.
The handle only takes a few 10mm nuts to remove and can be changed in a few minutes. It retails for around $35 from your dealer.

Deterime if the key rotates to the left and right first-if it does not than it's a tumbler issue-however if it does rotate-its a linkage in the panel either diconnected or blocked-not easy but from inside see if anything is around or on the locking bar-

I had the same problem and someone in the dealership advised me to saturate the entire latch mechanismn with WD 40 before trying to figure out what is wrong with it, I did so and have never had another problem again, I have solved many sticking locks and latch problems with WD 40 ever since and found 90% of the time parts are not needed just a good lubricant to keep things flowing!!! Good luck, hope this helps.
