The easy part is you just need the latch for the liftgate. The hard part is getting to it and opening the liftgate to replace the latch. You should be able to pull the liftgate trim off most of the way with the gate closed and try to manually actuate the latch to open the gate. You may have to go so far as breaking the latch from the inside to open the gate and then replace your latch.

Use WD-40 or similar penetrating spray & use the little red nozzle & get in behind & down sides as much as you can at door latch assy on doors. You may even find a slot right by the latch that you can stick nozzle in to spray all over. On front doors with key slots, push nozzle into key slot as far as you can & spray good while pulling nozzle out slow. Keep working them by hand at afirt until you feel them get a little easier, then start hitting power button up/down a few times & keep working it until they free up. If/when you've got them working again, spray same way, only with some "white lithium spray grease" to keep them lubricated after. I've had to resort to removing door panels to get at seized linkages in there before, but quite often, this will work. Keep me posted on results.

It sounds like the the linkage, actuator (power locks), or the mechanism has broken or become dislodged.
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you should see everything and hopefully see the cause.

the electric actuator part of the locking mechanism probably went bad and is not locking the lock,,you reall would need to remove the inner panel and check for power and ground at the harness to the lock,if its there,,,you need a new lock actuator,if not you got another issue,,wire bad, computer etc..most likely just a bad lock actuator
