2006 Honda Odyssey V8 53000 miles

My 2006 Odyssey tailgate will not open. It IS NOT the automatic opening type that is on the Touring model.

My wife used it leaving the house and locked the car at Costco. When she came out the tail gate would not open.

Is there a way I can release it if door handle will not work?
Thanks Lem

If you cannot open the tailgate, remove the small cover on the center back of the tailgate. Use the key
to unlock the tailgate, then pull the outer handle to open the tailgate. It's in the owner's manual page 146
