I bought a used 04 and when I took delivery I couldn't open the tailgate.
The non-Ford dealer was clueless when it came to helping me so I looked at it myself.
There is a small plastic access cover right above the mechanism on the inside of the hatch. It is about 1.5" by 1.5" square. Pop it off and drown the lock with WD40 to see if you can free it iu.
I finally got mine to open and then removed the inner panel to partially reveal the mechanism. It looked like it was brought up from the Titanic. It was completely rusted.
Seems that this model has a problem with water getting into the lock as it pools in the area where the catch is.
$167.00 later, tax in, and the problem is fixed as long as you continue to spary the h_ _ _ out of it with WD40

I fixed mine by using fine steel wool to clean the brass contacts located at the right upper door frame on the right door as viewed from the rear of the vechicle.

your issue involves the master control switch panel on the drivers side and or the passenger side as well some how the contact inside the switch assembly has either shorted out or no longer makes contact for the unlock side of the circuit. replace the drivers side panel switchs it's either a series of switc hs or mostimes one sigle board of switchs. you are better off going to an auto parts store rather than a GM dealership this will save you quite a bit on cash on the parts. now as to the rear tailgate. if it is electronic controled and there is an issue with the master switch you can,t manually unlock it because of a safty issue built in the system. you can manually unlock the passenger compartment doors for thew same reasons of safety but doesn't apply to the tailgate. just replace the parts and this will take care of the problem
