I would suggest changing the latch! I have changed a lot of latches and not once had a problem with the actual wiring t the latch. That's what I would do.
So the lock mechanism works but the release doesn't! I still believe that the issue is with the latch if it has power and can hear it unlocking then the cinch/latching mechanism is not working correctly. Give a new latch a try there not to hard to change. Best luck have a happy new year.
