latch and lock are jammed from the hit will probably need to pry hatch over or lift while unlocking to open than adjust hatch or latch for proper working order also check relay and fuse hit may have also damaged wiring
yes, by removing the back seat entirely along with the noise barrier, then crawl through and trip the lock with a flat blade screwdriver..it will be dark in there so use a flashlight or light source of some sort..you may have messed up the switch that controls the trunklight and it may be staying on as well..repost findings..
I have run into this problem and i found that the switch that operates alarm and inside light is bad, the switch is located on the latch, the latch may need to be removed to replace the switch. some dealers do not sell just the switch, i have run into this problem where switch is not replaceable the complete latch needs to be replaced.
Another problem i have run into is the wiring going into the hatch breaks, the wiring from bendine due to door opening and closing breaks a wire or two due to bending , locate wiring coming into rear hatch and check each wire,
Those fuel pumps will die after sitting for long. You can check its fuse but I bet its done.
The power hatch has a swicth on the latch. It moves with the latch as it goes up and down and this can break the wires inside the switch. The swicth can be seen through the hole in the cover where the latch is. Also check the fusable links at the starter. Don't just look, give a light tug. The wire could still be there (fusable link is where the wire melts away like the wire inside a fuse) but be corroded inside the black (or white) plastic connector. Or vermin could have chewed on them.
I too had an issue with my rear hatch. My father in law cut a huge hole in the plastic only to find out there is a manual operation hole behind one of the carpeted panels in the hatch. You simply move the latch with pliers.
