Hello, If the hatchback won’t open with the remote or the interior release button, the most likely problem is in the rear hatch unlock solenoid. I would check all the fuses first, since it might have a dedicated fuse. If the fuse is good, the unlock solenoid will need to be accessed to perform electrical testing. You may need the aid of a mechanic to remove the panel for access and testing.
