There is a tendancy for the Triggers from the handle to Disengage internally to the Latch due to Wear and Tear, or sometimes Stressing the Mechanism when the Tailgate is Locked and someone forgot.
Gently unfasten the trim panels around the Tailgate, from the INSIDE, and if you THINK about the project, you will be able to release enough of this All in One piece enough to trip the triggers by hand, and open the Tailgate. Continue to unfasten the moulded grips, and remove the whole panel. This will then give you the access to fix the Release mechanism, mounted on the Tailgate inner body.

I found this URL on internet http://www.chefseattle.com/blog/site-news/suburban-rear-liftgate-wont-unlock-how-to-fix/ It might fix your problem. Also while you have the panel off, consider doing the fix rear wiper how to tip I have posted before it fails.

If you can, you would have to get something on it to grab the release to open it. You may be able to try two pairs of plyers. I am not sure if that will work. Many people will actually tie shoe strings on the release and pull them up. It just depends how hard it is to release. If no tool will work, try the shoe strings. Hope this helps.

Kathy, You would need a small screw driver and a foot rule or a metal strip about an inch wide and a foot long. Collected? Now, with the screw driver you must remove the plastic moulding that is there on the outer side of the drivers door glass. Just put the screw driver head in the gap between the moulding and the door frame and push upwards. Do it at a number of places and the moulding will come out. After that you must insert the foot rule between the glass pane and the gap in the door over the place where the key hole is directly below it. Push the foot rule down so that you hear a click sound. If you hear it you will notice the door lock has opened. Cheers. Now replace the moulding by placing it where it was and pressing it downwards till the whole moulding is in its place.
