Thanks for getting back with us.
Our goal is to try to assist you in the repair of your vehicle with the least amount of work/tests first and most logical using a troubleshooting tree method and then work towards the more work/tests as needed.
Instead of changing the light fixture due to a bulb not working, you would first check the bulb. Same principle here. Many times latches get dirt/grim in them or the spring gets weak and it takes just a slight tap to free it.
The test I provided was just used on 1 March for a Toyota Sequoia as a matter of fact but had a bolt stuck in the latch.
