The liftgate won't open. What to do?

The rear liftgate will not open by its button or by the remote on key.

it sounds like the rear latch actuator has gone out and will need to be replaced. From inside the car remove the door panel to release or remove the actuator.
Here are some guides and diagrams to help you get the job done.
Please let me know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.
