SOURCE: rear window will not close
The latch could be bad. Try latching it with a screwdriver to see if the latch will close at all. If it does it might just need to be adjusted out further.

I have seen some times the latch assemblys get rusty or dirty and the inside or outside door handles are pulled and the latch assembly siezes in the open position not allowing the door to latch closed..but this may not be the case .. check to see also if the child lock switch position is not stuck in the halfway position, also check if the latch has not flipped to the close position before the door was closed thus jamming the striker latch..this can be fixed by pulling the catch out while opening the door handle..hope this helps good luck...

The latch may have gotten tripped without being latched. Look in the latch area of the door and see if you can stick a screwdriver or a pen into the latch from the end and pull it towards the inside of the door while pulling on the handle. The screwdriver should pop free and the door may work then. If it does it regularly or won't latch still, you may need to adjust the strike (the bolt-like thing that sticks out from the door jamb) Loosen it with a T-47 torx bit and tap it up or down until it line up with the latch. adjust it in and out until the door latches reliably and is lined up with the body when latched.

this is most likely that it was 'latched' when it was open, causing the latch to be in the way, you should try using the release whether electric or manual and listening for the unlatch sound if heard then that should fix it, if not, then there is probably something miss alligned or bent in the latching system
