I assume you mean 6 am, which is when I am not online. So that means there will be some gaps between our communication. So I am going to leave you with come info to get started with.

Here is the wire diagram.

Here are the trim removal steps.

I need to know if you have an auto or manual liftgate?

We need to get into the liftgate and try to manually get the latch to release so we can then do electrical tests on the door ajar sensors and the lock actuator sing a volt ohm meter. Let me know if you can get into the get and get it open?
