Hit switch. Mechanism clicks. Lock will not open. Tried using key, lock will not open. Tried lubrication by spraying. Frustration, lock will not open.

Which rear door? The sliding side door or the the lift gate? If it's a sliding door, you have to pull the trim panel off, then unbolt the large plate near the front and pull it away enough to look behind it to see if a linkage popped off. They look like a threaded wood screw that snaps into a spring-metal clip. On once you pop it back on, add a dab of silicone gasket sealer to prevent that from happening again.
