SOURCE: The rear power lift gate
You most likely have a failed switch in the rear gate jamb. This switch tells the system that the gate is closed and if the system thinks that the door is already open, it will not open it again.
Have the Body Control Module (BCM) scanned for codes and live data with a scan tool capable of accessing this information. This will tell you if the switch is operational by manually operating switch while monitoring the switch state with the scan tool.
Any shop with a decent scan tool should be able to do this. Nissan dealerships use Consult-II and now Consult-III scanners and have access to stuff the aftermarket guys don't get, but this should be accessible by nearly any higher end scanner like a Snap On Ethos, Solus, or Modis.
Hope this is helpful!

SOURCE: door ajar alarm
The doorlach pin is faulty.
On newer vehicles it is inside the door on the locking mechanism.
It is stuck in the closed position, or has become dislodged.
Refer to your mechanic for repair.

Had same problem on Ford Escape, Could not unlock the rear liftgate or window, if you can open you are in better luck.
If it is locked and closed, you will have to pull the top portion of the plastic trim away from the liftgate, it is held in place by metal retaining clips on top, and four screws on the bottom, if you can open, remove the screws then remove the rest of the panel, if unable, pull the top of the panel just far enough to reach in and unlock the liftgate.
Once you have the gate open and the panel off, you will see the locking actuator connected to the electrical connetion, it is a little bit smaller then a pack of cigarettes with a black lever.
To remove you will need to remove the two outter 10mm nuts holding the "brass" colored assembly, you will probably have to disconnect the two lever connections to get to the back side of the brass assembly, once this is done, you can use a T-20 torx to remove the locking actuator, part number stamped on my part was 4510 5424 made by KIEKERT although a search of this part didnt give me any good results, anyway, that was the cause of my problem, once replace and all put back together everything worked fine.

The door switch provides a ground to the dome light... so there is no danger to you if you want to attempt a removal of the switch. A rusted or shorted wire in the door switch (of any door) will keep the dome light on.
