The lift gate will not open. I press the FOB and I do not hear a sound. I have put the latch release button in the manual mode and I still cannot open the lift gate. The past month before this happened the latch would release but the lift gate would not open we had to pull it open manually. I purchased a new siscor motor that opens and closes the trunk and I installed it yesterday but it had no affect on the issue. I also checked two fuses under the hood (# 70 and # 44 I think) and they are good. How do I get the latch to release and then what is the next step to fix the issue?

You will need to have the body computer scanned using a Tech2 device or something similar that can access the body control module for a rear door diagnosis. The door can be actuated and tested by a technician to see what is not working. Once the issue has been pinpointed the necessary parts or adjustments can be made accordingly.
