Question about Cars & Trucks
It doesn't seem like anything, until you
remove the door panel & find the problem
You do realize that was a statement or story
& not a question with details

Typically spring is the failed part. Unfortunately if the WD-40 doesn't work then need to order or find replacement at a junk yard. There are 2 bolts that secure the hatch handle to the door but you'll need to remove the interior trim panel to get to it. Also the 2 screws/bolts that secure the hatch handle to the door can be fragile as well and may break-off - so unscrew with extreme caution. There is a a "Rube Goldberg" kind of set-up to get this whole mechanism to actually work. The wire-hanger type of metal that appears to link to the actual latch area can easily be popped off the 1-side of the hatch handle once you are able to remove the hatch handle from the door (after the 2 bolts are removed).

I have the same car, same problem. I've still not been able to fix it, despite taking the inside panels off the rear doors, checking the rods were seated, applying WD-40 to the lock mechanisms, and manually working the mechanism. Child locks are not engaged, but I tried putting them on and off too. Just won't open.

I am sorry but even though you provided a great answer your peers are no longer allowed to vote for you without fear of disciplinary action.
However on this occasion I will risk it for a biscuit
