SOURCE: Tailgate won't open
I had the same problem - took off the inside panel on the tailgate and the rod from the lift handle to the latch was disconnected at the latch ( on the driver side). Simple to reattach and works fine ever since. Hope this helps.

I have the same issue on my 2002 Escape. I hear the cylinder motors engaging on the doors but not the liftgate so all I can assume is the wiring loom on the passenger side upper corner of the liftgate needs attention. That is where the wiring is for the door motor that releases the window and gate. I will post again after I solve this. 6/28/2009

You will have to remove the panel covering the latch from the inside.Unhook it and you should be able to open it by prying up on it with a screwdriver.[Do these trucks not come with a rear hatch key?Don't know,just asking]

I just want to know if there is any manual to disarm the lift gate and check for the problem. Currently my door is lock and cant open, how you force it to open?

To open the lift gate manually, use the door unlock switch located
on the drivers door. This should unlock the lift gate as well. Go to the lift
gate and lift the handle to open the rear gate.
Your power lift gate is computer controlled. Sometimes there will
be a faulty input sensor or part that will show the incorrect data to the computer,
therefore the computer will not go through its normal functions.
In most cases its the problem of lift gate latch assembly.
To get it tested and confirmed there is a troubleshoot guide
provided by the service center. To perform this troubleshooting guide you will
require a scan tool to diagnose the exact problem.
the troubleshooting procedure is as follows:---
Please use the following information below when diagnosing an inoperative
lift gate. Disconnect the connector at the lift
gate latch assembly. With the lift gate latch connector disconnected, the 3
signals for the ratchet, pawl, and the sector should be inactive on the scan
Install a 3A fused jumper wire between each signal circuit
terminal (for the pawl, sector, and ratchet) and the ground circuit terminal 2.
Monitor the scan tool as each individual circuit is jumped to ground, the scan
tool should read "active".
If either tests above fails, check the wiring for the signal
circuits, low reference circuit, or try a power lift gate control module from a known good vehicle. If both tests above pass, monitor the internal switch inputs in
the lift gate latch assembly for proper operation.
3. A) with the lift gate in the open position, the ratchet and the
pawl should read "active" and the sector should read
B) With the lift gate in the secondary latched position, the pawl
should read "Inactive" and the ratchet and sector should read
C) With the lift gate fully closed, the pawl, ratchet, and the
sector should all read "inactive".
4.If one of the internal lift gate latch assembly switch inputs
are not reading correctly in one of the positions above and the vehicles passes
test 1 and 2 above. Replace the lift gate latch assembly.
Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and
complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing
every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
This should help you.Thanks.Helpmech.
